I know this has been done to death in many programming languages and probably even in AutoIt.
But couldn't help myself and as a learning challenge I wrote "yet another converter" LOL
I need your help to test it and show me "the error of my ways" but in a nutshell here's what it can do already (taken from my source file) :
Converts all zip files recursively into a 7Zip file, with max compression REQUIRES AUTOIT Version 22.214.171.124 + Exact copy with attributes and folder structure + Extensive error checking, including files blocked by anti-virus (by file count) + Can stop process and restart later with the use of a log file + Can pause process (but in between compressing / extracting files) + Creates a .CSV file that can be used to check on compression ratios + Dynamic GUI that enables user to see console while 7zip is working + Gui can be stretched horizontally for long filenames + Up to 5 retries while transfering compressed files + Checks free space (at startup) to make sure you don't kill your OS LOL + Have converted 10,000+ files with no issues in file integrity. + Open to suggestions and program free to modify to your liking + Will eventually be fully modular and configurable (if there is interest for this) + Exit codes so you can have an idea where program went wrong (if it did) + Fully commented so users can tinker away. - Cannot save archive comments. - Not FULLY tested yet, do not use on .zip files that have no backups The program also has a very minimal GUI that can be stretched. Not a huge fan of million-button interfaces.
I also assume some people running this program will have a 1024x768 monitor so the GUI is made accordingly.
There is no way I am keeping this script for myself. If this is useful to anybody, feel free to use it and modify it. All I ask is you credit me (as I will credit those who contribute).
Now here's the issues that are left to fix. Any help is greatly appreciated and I will add your name in the credits if you so wish.
- For some reason while compression is under way, all my current explorer windows flicker; notably the cut-and-paste part. I can't seem to narrow it down.
- Also context menu is closed in explorer every time program compresses / extracts a new file
- I've added support for retries if, for some reason, AutoIt can't move the converted file. This happened once after 5000-6000 conversions. Now that I've programmed the retries, the process is somewhat slower. It shouldn't affect speed though.
- After compressing 10,000+ files (Yes I have that many zip files! Think Mame) I've had a system meltdown. There's a leak somewhere. Am I supposed to close something and I'm not? I've added _IsPressed() lately so closing that .DLL is not the cause of this leak.
- Subtracting one array from another was a tricky thing to program (happens when user stops and restarts process), if you can think of a faster way I'm all in.
Obviously if you find bugs or have suggestions, I'm all ears.
Changelog is included in the source file, including credits.
PLEASE DON'T CONVERT ALL YOUR FILES YET. It's not fully tested (well I tested it but I need others to test too).
I can TCP/IP in AutoIt, hence, make a HTTP deamon. Now, how can I HTTPS to use SSL !??
Well, Apache has this "mod_proxy.so" module that can let me have SSL and what not is in Apache.
All that is needed is to tell Apache what I wanna do by editing httpd.conf .
# Implements a proxy/gateway for Apache. # 1. Open /Applications/XAMPP/etc/httpd.conf # 2. Enable the following Modules by removing the # at the front of the line. # - LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so # - LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so # - LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so # # 3. Copy and Paste below to the bottom of httpd.conf # <IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests On <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyVia Off ProxyPreserveHost Off ProxyPass /home/ http://127.0.0.1:84/home/ ProxyPassReverse /home/ http://127.0.0.1:84/home/ SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1 # ..since we are not using "keep-alive", we are using "close" </IfModule> ...et voila
I'm using XAMPP ( https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html )
and this is my solution to avoid coding in PHP, as I feel more comfortable coding in AutoIt.
A "muli-thread or concurrency" can be done by forking the socket ( https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/199177-fork-udf-ish/ )
but responses are under 20 ms., so I feel fine with a single thread.
I modified an example ( attached below ), so can try out the concept.
PS: I am not an Apache guru. I just discovered this and it opens a world of possibilities. In my case, I'm thinking of an API to query SQLite
PS2: I'm not gonna make Poll but do click like if you do
Has anyone successfully developed integration with the E*TRADE API in AutoIt?
If so, then would you be willing and able to share some of your AutoIt code to do so with me? and/or help me successfully develop an AutoIt interface with the E*TRADE API?

Thank You and Have a Great Day!

For my next project I would like to send files with "alternate data streams" by email in ZIP format.
I can not use any external program like 7-Zip or WinRAR. (They would fit😥)
Who knows how to create a ZIP file with "alternate data streams" included with the Powershell command "Compress-Archive"?
Here a test script: (save as "ADSTester.cmd")
@rem Try to create a zip file with alternate data streams (ADS) included @rem Housekeeping @cls @del ADSTester.zip >nul: @RD /S /Q Extracted >nul: @del ADSTester.txt >nul: @rem End of Housekeeping echo This is the ADSTester.txt file >ADSTester.txt echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part1 file >ADSTester.txt:Part1 echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part2 file >ADSTester.txt:Part2 dir /r ADSTester.txt @rem See the 3 files @rem **************************************************************** @rem **************************************************************** @rem Please alter the next lines to include the alternate data streams. powershell Compress-Archive -Path .\ADSTester.txt -Update -DestinationPath ADSTester.zip powershell Expand-Archive -Path ADSTester.zip -DestinationPath .\Extracted\ dir /r Extracted\ADSTester.txt @rem Only one file left :-( pause
Is it possible to unzip a zip file in Autoit without using a dll!
My script downloads a zip file to a temporary directory (successfully) and it must be unzipped to (Or moved to after unzip) another a folder which just happens to be
@scriptdir & "file.exe" Thanks in advance
