Thanks for creating it, ZuneARC is the fastest and most qualitative archiving program on AROS that allows you to customize everything.
ZuneARC also allows you to upgrade to new formats even by inexperienced users as you can see in my video, I hope they are to your liking, i'm preparing other stylized icons for AROS One

Is there any way to make ZuneARC recognize archives without extension?

Archives without extension are recognized by ZuneARC only if the name is equal to the extension!

Wasn't "recognizing" files the Amiga way a datatypes' duty?

Si, che io sappia su AROS x86 non esiste Deficons e Deficons Prefs, solo su AROS 68k se utilizzato quello di OS3.

Su AROS x86 il riconoscimento con o senza l'estensione avviente tramite il descrittore "Datatypes" e solo per alcuni formati e a tutti viene assegnata la stessa icona. Poi ci sono Applicazioni come UnARC che riesce a sfruttare il riconoscimento, ZuneARC e RNOArchive invece se non c' l'estensione o se il file non ha un nome uguale all'estensione non riconoscono l'archivio, lo faranno solo se aggiungi manualmente l'estensione.

Detto questo se UnARC riesce a farlo potrebbero farlo anche ZuneARC e RNOArchive.

UnARC ha invece un'altro problema comune RNOArchive ovvero un problema sulla libreria XAD, dove i BZ2 vengono scomparrati male e gli archivi RAR mandano in GURU sia AROS che OS3, solo OS4 ha la libreria XAD che funziona bene con tutti gli archivi.

MOS per esempio "senza estensioni" non riconosce gli archivi TAR, GZ e BZ2, AROS x86 adesso con la mia correzione nel descrittore li riconosce, ma come detto funzionano solo con UnARC.





----- English -----

Yes, To my knowledge on AROS x86 there is no Deficons and Deficons Prefs, only on AROS 68k if used that of OS3.

On AROS x86 the recognition with or without the extension is done through the "Datatypes" descriptor,  and only for some formats and all are assigned the same icon. Then there are Applications like UnARC that can take advantage of the recognition, ZuneARC and RNOArchive instead if there is no extension or if the file does not have a name equal to the extension they do not recognize the archive, they will do it only if you manually add the extension.

If UnARC can do it, ZuneARC and RNOArchive can do it too.

UnARC has another common problem with RNOArchive, that is a problem with the XAD library, where BZ2 archives are not properly disappeared and RAR archives send both AROS and OS3 to GURU, only OS4 has the XAD library works well with all archives

MOS for example "without extensions" does not recognize TAR, GZ and BZ2 archives, AROS x86 now with my correction in the descriptor recognizes them, but as mentioned they only work with UnARC.

Some Programs, even in the Amiga world and AROS, only recognize files by file extension. They don't bother to check file signature. That's why when writing code we have to account for both situations, with or without file extension.

However, when saving files, using the file extension as an indicator to convert file types can be a useful feature. So dealing with file extensions can make things easier or more difficult.

Someone pointed out to me that the size 48 icons don't show the text clearly, I recreated new icons with larger text, I hope it reads better now, in time I'll redo for other formats as well.

Yes it is very important because if there is a wrong extension it is easy for the application to be led astray, but as said it can also hide something

Some users have told me that the close button windows on the "right" used on many OS and uncomfortable on AROS because they are used to have it on the "left".

I made the change and now all themes have the close button on the "left"; who is interested in restoring the button on the "right" can do it by making a small change to the script configuration Theme.

Also for the Def icons "images" I recreated the icons with larger texts so that even on the small icons you can read them well.
