MSX Commander, the new file manager for MSX, is rapidly receiving updates. Since we first reported about this utility, less than a week ago, several improvements already been made in multiple separate releases:

  • Added recursive copy (copy a directory and all its subdirectories)
  • Proceed all for read only files when copying or deleting
  • Check to prevent copying over itself
  • Confirmation dialog when overwriting files
  • Support for cancel copy/delete
  • Some bug fixes

Please check the version .26, i fixed a bug for small files in mapper. Now you can copy a entire floppy full of files with 1 change, if you have mapper enough.

Even with mapper I'm assuming at least 768KB of RAM for this to work in one step?

MC takes 3 pages for itself, so 48K over the 4 already reserved for DOS. since it fork processes like MM or XCC it has no choice than leave the 4 DOS pages untouched, except by a small amount in the stack. Besides the 3 pages, an extra page will be allocated for user menu entries, and directory listings for both views. If your directories have thousands of files, extra pages will be allocated on demand. For copying large files and extra page is needed.

So, we have: 64K from DOS (untouched) + 64K for MC. Also, DOS already take some pages for it.
So to copy a single 720KB disk in one shot you need at least 1024k.

Yesterday i did some test on this. I realy like the tool! .. file browsing is faster! and also scrolling (i like that more then page view) Also using the mouse is very handy. But i have to look again for a good MSX mouse.. Wink It took me some time to figure out how to select files... but it's in the manual .. Wink use the select key.. i was pressing the space key of courseWink Just a small thing.. it would be nicer if you select the hole (horizental) row instead the one the filename... but this is a minor of course Wink Thanks for making this tool! (i looks a lot of MC on linux) which is very cool! LOL!
