Compare plugin bug

Postby I love Far Manager » Thu 03 Jan, 2013 08:56

If 256 characters or more in length file names containing directories are compared with Far Manager 3000 x64 software, compare plugin crashes, or the file manager.
All older versions, there was the same problem.

The official Compare plugin bad.

Far Manager v3.0 build 3000 x64 and x64 Build 3076

If more than 256 characters (file name + directory name) containing directory compare with the official Compare plugin, the Far Manager crashes and exits.
This is very inconvenient. :(

The VisualCompare plugin not know this, but it shows the error and the Far Manager is not exits.

The Total Commander knows and perfectly treats the above.

Will be fixed?
If yes, approximately when?
Quite confusing ...

Thank you god! Thank you!

It seems now good, but there is one small beauty error.

The text box does not follow the bigger characters in length. The path + file names do not fit in the text box.

Thanks for the quick work!

Remained a very small beauty error.

Very long path and file names in the text box length is good, but the width is small.

Unfortunately, the very long file names have already found a long one that was not working. Not only the importance of the text box width, but the length is wrong (but much better than before).

What exactly is wrong ?

"Very long path and file names in the text box length is good, but the width is small." Sticking out of the top and bottom of the text box.
It's simple. Only those files and paths to be compare which is longer than what the old Far Manager is not able to handle.
The long file name and path can not be deleted, but if you rename short, yes may be delete.

"Unfortunately, the very long file names have already found a long one that was not working. Not only the importance of the text box width, but the length is wrong (but much better than before)."
Only once did I find that, Sorry, Now I cannot reproduce this.

Regular delete operation <F8> by default is explorer delete it can't handle very long filenames.
You can use delete without explorer - <Shift-Del> it should be ok.
