MacPAR OS X 1.0b2
Jan 23, 2002 02:30PM

Download: Stuffit Archive

Second beta release of MacPAR OS X, a user friendly OS X interface for the PAR utility for OS X.1.2 users to easy create PAR archives or to recover missing files in a chain of multipart files (like .001, .002 etc.) by using .PAR files (like .P01, .P02).

What's new in this second beta version 1.0b2:

  • Drag and Drop is now enabled. In this version it is limited to drag and drop to the program icon on the desktop, to the icon in a folder or placed in the Dock (not yet to the program window itself).
  • Added a preference panel with several options:
  • now the user can choose how many PAR archives must be created;
  • check for duplicate files;
  • check for faulty filenames;
  • old PAR archives can now be moved out of the way;
  • option for case insensitive filenames.
  • Improved checking for existing PAR- files (so that they will not be included in a new PAR archive).
  • Possibility to add individual files (drag and drop mode only) to an existing archive.
  • Possibility to select individual files to be placed in an archive (drag and drop mode only).
  • Now the window close button will close the window and quit the program.
  • Now also files can be archived with an extension of less (or more) than three digits (e.g. .x or .xx)
  • The activity indicator will now show the name of the file or archive that is processed.

    Bug fixes:

  • fixed a bug that caused PAR files to be not found, because of "faulty" characters in the name of the file or of the folder path.
