When using mc I've noticed, that extfs' often clutter the screen a
lot and are generaly not too reliable.
I decided to look into their shell code, and mostly they are quite
messy - they don't detect if binaries they use exist in the system,
they don't provide error handling etc.
I decided to fix some of them. I'm including new urar and uzoo as an
attachments. Try it, and tell mi if my work is helpful. If it's worth
the effort, I can fix the rest of them.
Some questions to extfs experts:
1. Why when I copyin file into the archive copyout is issued as well??
My debug file:
/usr/share/mc/extfs/urar copyout /home/alpha/tmp/arch/01jwr10.rar tmp
/usr/share/mc/extfs/urar copyin /home/alpha/tmp/arch/01jwr10.rar tmp
2. Why 'list' target doesn't support error handling like the rest of
targets? (I checked, it works as a one-way pipe, but it should be some
error handling to inform user that, for example, he should install
unrar to see this file)
Looking forward to your reply.
