DFSee 9.03 released, advanced scripting!

November 26, 2007 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From:Jan van Wijk

[Moderator note: While in the process of finishing up this release Jan helped me get back my eCS partitions which were clobbered by installing Ubuntu. DFSee has saved me at least twice and helped me out several other times. ]

DFSee version 9.03 has been released today

It has a few minor bug fixes, but more importantly it is a pre-release of the 'Tx Advanced Scripting' engine as presented at warpstock 2007 in Toronto.

TxScript has been enhanced with many new features, making it a quite powerful scripting environment, some highlights:

- Scalar and array variables
- Expression evaluation for numbers and strings
- Flow control with if-then-elseif-else, while, for, until
- Access to much DFSee internal info using system variables

For an introduction in TX advanced scripting see:

Almost all features described there are present in 9.03,
the few missing ones will be added in the upcoming 9.04.
Some small code samples are included as sample-*.dfs.

DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning, filesystem and disk analysis, file recovery, UNDELETE for HPFS JFS, and NTFS, resizing and smart imaging or cloning.

- SCRIPT Added comma-operator to expressions (for loops)
