Perhaps this topic is not very suitable, but I didn't find another..
In which case it is common to start .... drumrole.... a new topic  ;)

I don't see any ftp-client on archives.aros-exec.org in network/ftp section.
The answer to any question related to where to find some piece of AROS specific software is: Icaros Desktop.

You do not have to like, install, support or sympathise with Icaros in any way but for sure Paolone did one heck of an job to include all that he is/was able to find.

Version 3.2.0 of the Free Pascal compiler was released.

ALB42 has created some nice installer packages that work with (the new) Amiga installer.

The packages for AROS (abiv0) can be found on the AROS archives
- for AROS-i386
- for AROS-arm

Packages for other targets such as AmigaOS 3.x/4.x and MorphOS can be found on ALB42's website here.

This release is a major improvement for our platforms in specific because there has been a lot of work done to make the API calls between the (nextgen) Amiga targets as compatible as possible and there were some important bugfixes and other improvements.

Release related changes:
- new features
- list of changes that may break backward compatibility


Be sure to check out the Free Pascal for Amiga(OS)/AROS/MorphOS wiki and also take a peek at ALB42's blog

The Free Pascal compiler itself can be (cross-)compiled from the official Free Pascal Sources (requires a decent setup) and nightly build binaries are available from ALB42's buildbot.

A special thanks to the AROS development team for their support, ALB42 and Chain-Q for the current port, and not the least Volker Barthelmann for his excellent vbcc compiler suite and Frank Wille for his work with regards to that suite (the latter really makes (cross-)compiling with Free Pascal a breeze).

Have fun !

PS: public reaction in this specific thread have been turned off to preserve it for future releases.

I have home storage for films, music, etc and I use RNOXfer for AOS4, this is the fastest.
Unfortunately it isn't available for AROS.  :-\ Since you are driving/uploading one of the RNO products, maybe you know how to influence this?
Get a link to AmFTP build for AROS would be a solution too.

Help / Re: Compare files

How can I comprare two directory or devices so I can see which file is missing on the other device and if the same file is copied elsewhere and buried in a different directory?

In case you are looking for a single command that is able to do that for you then the answer to that question would be that you can't (unless someone programs that functionality explicitly into a single command/script).

Usually, that would be a two step process:
1 compare drawers and their contents
2 in case a file is missing, look/search for that file elsewhere

I'm perhaps not the smartest of people when it comes to using shell commands but I can at least try and help you to retrieve a list of missing/different files. The simplest for that imho would be to use the command diff from the development package.

You can invoke diff to compare two drawers:
Code: [Select]
diff drawer1 drawer2

For diff to report only the missing or files that are different, you can use the option -q
Code: [Select]
diff -q drawer1 drawer2

But, that will not compare the sub-drawers. We need recursion for that with the option -r
Code: [Select]
diff -qr drawer1 drawer2
That should be able to get you a list of all files that differ or are missing, comparing the provided drawers and their sub-drawers.

More information about the diff command: https://www.man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/diff.1.html


For the second part (looking for that file elsewhere), you could make use of the command find (also part of development package).

Code: [Select]
Find search_location -type f -name "filename_to_search_for"

more information about the find command: https://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/find.1.html


Depending on your results from step 1 these results could perhaps be piped to the find command used in step 2.

In case the results from step1 only gives you a small list of results then it would perhaps be easier to search for these files manually using the find command for each individual missing/diff file.

Of course it is always possible to create some batch script as well.

In/At how many locations do you need to start searching for the diff/missing files ?

Except that he didn't ;)  He forgot to do the last step so I fixed that for him.
Thanks you, again! I don't know what to say.  ;D

the final beta

http://jpv.wmhost.com/testi/RNODTP/RNOPublisher_AROS_beta.lha

Aminet release could be maybe next week :)

2020-07-22 (should stop somewhere and release the program, but the time wasn't yet it seems):
- Scaling large images to fit the page didn't include margins for the new size
- Position for new objects is now taken from the previous object also when adding by buttons and not just by doube-clicking
- New objects are positioned not only by previous selection, but now also by previous movement/resizing
- Argh, had to make a crucial internal change to make future updates easier. Old docs won't work, hopefully nothing else broke.
- Added "Text line" object, which can be rotated
- Added a background color option for objects
- Tweaked loading of documents more future proof
- Implemented object cache to speed up selection of objects on a page
- Added image rotation options
- Support for alpha transparent images
- Support for palette based transparency in images (iff, gif...)
- Loads images and text files dropped on GUI, not just .rnd files
- Added an option to lock object in position
- Changed name to RNOPublisher
- Implemented multi-remove, and group moving via object list
- Page Up/Down to move through pages in document
- Line spacing in exported PDF files is more precise now (as-seen in an edit window)
