namefix 4.0 RC11 win32 repack

namefix 4.0 RC11 win32 repack

Seems I still need to learn howto use the perl package a bit better, for whatever reason its not including the libs directory. Simply extract the namefix folder to c:\program files and run the reg file. No installer at this point as I need to update the nsi script and I just dont have the time atm.

namefix 4.0 RC11 - win32 release

Ye Olde Direct Link Here

Sorry for the lag in win32 releases, its just that I cbf :P

namefix 4.0 RC11

Here it is, 4.0 RC11, heavily buffed & polished and closer to the elusive 4.0.
I decided to release it before I get to distracted with this other program Im writing at work. I think all that really remains before 4.0 (apart from cleaning up my own messy code) is a full test of recursive feature.


I havent had time to fully test recursive renaming (itself and with the undo).
Still havent looked into the windows bug, mentioned in previous post, though I may have fixed it while sorting out another problem**.

4.0 RC11 Changelog:
  • Mon Apr 7 2008

  • removed a bit of redundant code from fixname
  • filter wasnt working in recurisve listing / renaming - fixed
  • if match_filter gets passed a blank string it will error - this shouldnt happen
  • match_filter 1st checks for empty filter, if so returns 1 (its quicker).
  • created ls_dir_print_passthru (little hack) so ls_dir_print gets a var passed from find
  • ls_dir_print no longer uses $_, instead gets passed a var like a normal sub
