UnicodeTest/LockedTest

Post by *Alextp »

This content plugin allows to check:
1. is filename Unicode or ANSI (on Windows NT/2000/XP systems);
2. is file locked by another task or not.

BTW, should I put it to Totalcmd.net? IMHO plugin is very small for it.
Of course you should - it is not small for the ones who need it!

There is nothing worse than tools and plugins that nobody knows of, so better release everything, no matter how useful or useless it is.
There will always be at least one person who needs it. :)

Thanks for this plugin, Alextp!

Could you add a column, which states the character encoding in the follwing manner?

Code: Select all

'Script for Script Content Plugin
'(c)Lev Freidin, 2005

strChrEnc = "ASCII-7"
For i = 1 to Len(filename)
   intZn = AscW(Mid(filename, i ,1))
   If intZn > 255 Then
      strChrEnc = "Unicode"
      Exit For
   ElseIf intZn > 127 Then
      strChrEnc = "ASCII-8"
   Else
      'NOP
   End If
Next

content = strChrEnc
Would be useful in order to check, if problems with some archivers might occur.

Example: The "€"-symbol is ANSI-coded (x'80'), but ZIP will replace this character by "_". Unicode for "€" is x'20AC' (>x'FF'), so result for the new plugin column should be "Unicode" (while existing column reports "ANSI").

Isn't that reliable. Char "ƒ" (ANSI x'83', Unicode x'0192') for instance will result in "Unicode". Bit ZIP handles this char correct, because it is present in westeuropean DOS encoding). I'am afraid, that it would be too much work to recognize, if all characters of a given filename fits a certain encoding / codepage, wouldn't it?

Thanks!

Sorry, I didn't understand how function "AscW" works in the script.
AscW(0x80)=0x20AC and
AscW(0x83)=0x0192, right?
How to write this function in Pascal/C?

And, if you want to catch characters in filename that will be replaced by ZIP to '_', you should know, what function ZIP uses for that detection exactly. As you wrote, it's not "AscW(char)>255"...

errr... It shows all folders and filenames in my computer are ANSI (I searched).
So... How to rename them to unicode? I tried use explorer, doesn't work either.
Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Small extract from the VB Help file...
The AscW function returns the Unicode character code except on platforms where Unicode is not supported, in which case, the behavior is identical to the Asc function.

To have Unicode, you must have Win2k/XP, because Unicode API is fully supported only by these OS.

Open Character Map (charmap.exe), select some chars from different encodings (use chars from the end of map) and paste them while renaming file in Explorer - file will be in Unicode. To ensure it's in Unicode, try to open it by F3 - TC must show error: "File not found". If F3 gives no error, then file has accessible short name and TC uses it.

You may need to copy Unicode file to different folder so it will not have accessible short name. E.g. I needed to copy file from C: to D:, so copy will not have short name like source.

I'll try to read VB help. But I don't think this AscW function will help us. If you want to search for chars that will be renamed by ZIP, you need not AscW, but real functrion used by ZIP (maybe you need to read ZIP source).

Thanks for your explanation. Seems there would be more trouble using unicode filenames in TC ^_^
Great plugin!

N1 mate!! This one is of real usfe for me.

Now, possible bug :)

To reproduce you need few files with unicode chars and:
1. Sort by name for reference.
2. Sort by custom column.
3. Move focus from TC, return to TC and list is sorted diferntly...
Image: http://img458.imageshack.us/img458/3619/untitled9wy.jpg

Is sorting of custom coulmns implemented fully at all?
I remember there were some word on the forum about custom columns and sorting, I've tried to find it but...

TC is 6.53.
[Edit]
woops:)
in the image 2. and 3. should be changed :)

Update:
16.01.06: added detection of "Partial Unicode" names

2frenky
It looks like a bug in TC sorting by custom columns. You should show this bug to Ghisler.

Update:
30.01.06: added field "Locked test", plugin name changed

Download

Now it's possible to find files by Alt+F7 that are locked by other tasks or TC. Then you may unlock such files using Unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker).

Nice plugin indeed! One small (?) request: another field, that shows the application that locks that particular file! How about that?
I switched to Linux, bye and thanks for all the fish!

well, THAT would be awesome.



acctualy, don't need 3th field, just put the name of the app in place where you stored "locked" string... live it empty if it is not.


we will search for <> empty string if we want to find only locked files and vice versa if we don't
