Default Advanced Directory Functions: Compare, Selection & More

Advanced Features.

I remember old functionalities found in a product named XTREE that run under DOS...

1.- Case sensitive file/Dir Comparing (Is it possible under FTP commands only?)
2.- File Size Comparing
4.- Date/Time Comparing
3.- CRC Comparing

Advanced selection based on comparing results...

Search and Replace functions...

Parametric Rename, Create, Move, Transfer. etc.

like this

FOR %i=01,10 DO
Transfer [File%i.rar -> /Dir%i/File%i.rar]

I know this requires a scripting language, a parser engine that interpretes scripts translating them into FTP Commands... But It would make FFXP really powerful and customizable.

And yes, these features are far from the current scope of FFXP but you could consider them in the next major release (v2.0?)

FlashFXP already does
2.- File Size Comparing
4.- Date/Time Comparing

3.- CRC Comparing
in order to do that you must actualy download given file.
in that case might as well use .sfv or .md5
there might be custom ftp commands which tell server to show crc of a file. but there are no standards for such commands so uniform implementation will be virtualy imposible.
right now you can use raw commands to achive same results.

Not really, as it's bound to be warped by timezones and such. If a user forgets to use, or is prevented from using the "local" time/date stamp, comparisons made is rendered useless.
