  • Performing content comparison even when no filesize returned

    In another thread Craig wrote "BC doesn't perform content comparisons on files that don't have sizes (to keep it from doing it twice after file operations)."

    I have implemented an FTP server for a set of "files" that it's inefficient to compute the size of when presenting a directory listing. I'd still like BC to perform content comparisons. Any chance of an option to support this behaviour?

    I can add it to the todolist, but it will be a while before I can get to it. You could return a size of 0 until then.

      I found it was necessary to return a value greater than zero. So for the moment I'm returning a size of 1 for every file.

        Hi Craig and you other Scooter(er)s,

        Can I nudge this issue and see how close it is to the top of the pile?

        Thanks,
        John

          Thanks for the nudge, John. This is still on our list to look into, but we haven't been able to yet.

            Another gentle nudge. An enhancement/fix for this would be greatly appreciated.

              Hi Scooter-folk,

              Any chance of this being part of 3.2?

              Hoping,

              John

                Hi John,

                Sorry, it doesn't look like this is in the 3.2 beta that we just released. For a full list of changes in the beta, see the betalog: http://www.scootersoftware.com/BetaLog.txt
