Ndless Commander 0.4 -- TI-Nspire File Browser
« on: June 02, 2012, 05:16:10 pm »
I'm dumping here one quick hack I put together one night for whoever who might find it interesting. It's called Ndless Commander (à la Midnight Commander), a Ndless file browser. Well actually browsing files and having a preview of the file is the only thing it can do, as I never really finished it (as said in the nSDL thread, I'm leaving soon so I won't have the time to take care of it myself). If anyone's up for the task, be my guest. You can basically venture into the dark abyss of your TI-Nspire's memory.

Screenshots, as usual:







Download's attached (TNS & source code). (oh and it uses nSDL for those who want to play around with the source)

Works on every version. You can access the TI-Nspire's root directory using the program, that's what's lurking there.

Bug: on a CX CAS, OS 3.1.0.392; went to /phoenix/syst/poweroff and got a reboot...

EDIT: Wait, maybe it's supposed to do that? idk

Did you move the cursor on a certain file or did it reboot right after opening the directory?

Also a bug report, only on the /ndless/ folder tho (so far), when I go down the list of files, the list doenst follow (I mean, it doesnt scroll), so we don't see the cursos anymore, since it's offscreen.

I didn't bother to implement scrolling because of lack of time. The code is very short and it shouldn't be that hard to implement however. As I mentioned up there, it's an unfinished work, and it's nowhere near being a fully functional file browser (and something I won't be updating myself).

(In other news, I wonder if the exammode/ folder could be altered somehow to modify the PTT mode...)

Alrighty finished my French exam today (there's nothing I hate more than that, the French style dissertations are completely useless poetic babbling, pseudo-philosophy, write-as-much-as-you-can bullshit analysis on some oh-so-deep subject ("elaborate the similarity between universality and originality with close reference to [...]" and other crap like that), doesn't suit the Finnish mind; but enough of the rant, that's another matter) and decided to speedcode and improve whatever I could. Unfortunately fgetc() (and consequently, fgets() & co.) is buggy and so I couldn't finish writing the full screen file content viewer. Deleting folders worked well (assuming the folder was empty) but it for some reason did not let me remove any files except a few (themes.csv?) so I left that also out. So at the end I only implemented file list scrolling and used some quick hacks to get around the fgets() bug, so it shouldn't reboot anymore.

Screenshot as usual:

New version. This one allows you to copy a file to your My Documents folder by pressing Tab. That means you can copy and files inside the drive to your computer and check them out there. (\exammode\syst\savedsettings.data, I'm looking at you)

Aaand, in less than an hour, another quick update. In the preview it showed some weird character at the end of every line, that's gone. I also removed the message box as it caused some weird behavior (or inconvenient) so I replaced it with a home-made message box. There's also some colors because everybody loves colors:



Download in first post (I removed the older ones).

(Please don't behead me for the double post)
