Finished a little bit more MCAmiga testing, especially on MorphOS and AmigaOS4 there where some serious problems. On AmigaOS4 the device view did not work at all, just crashed, reason was a bug in the AmigaDOS unit of FreePascal. I fixed that exact problem already for other platforms, and now also on AmigaOS4. On MorphOS only tiny changes are needed, mostly related to the supplied lha being a little bit different than the one on classic, but still very close. AROS was a bigger problem, the lha command here is completely different, very limited actually, for example you cannot extract a single file.
I got a hint from Charlie to use cad to unpack archives, because it supports many different formats and it’s available for at least classic and MorphOS, I found out for AROS there is also a version in contrib, that means at least Icaros even comes automatically with it. AmigaOS4 seems not to have it, at least I did not find it. It works very nicely, easy to operate, but sadly it’s only for unpacking archives, no way to pack them. That means the functionality is limited to read only access in MCAmiga. Therefore I gave xad a lower priority over the native lha/lzx programs, except on AROS because there xad is the better choice, the native lha command does not work at all.
Besides that big feature for handling archives, I added a lot of small stuff, like Shift cursor keys to select file, or Ctrl cursor keys to jump fast up and down or to first item (left) or to last item (right). Start programs with enter and wait for finish or with Shift Enter an do not wait for it, so effectively start it in a new shell.
The Source is now also available on GitHub completely. I did put it there on the first release but I forget to push the changed source. I committed locally only. But now the full source should be there, so take it an improve it and most importantly have fun with it.
For now that is already a very useful program for me, more or less finished. I do not really need more than that, maybe one day one could add an editor to it, especially an hex editor. But at the moment I don’t need it.
The requirements did not change, still Amiga 68020+, 4 MB, AmigaOS3.x, AmigaOS4 (except X5000), MorphOS 3.x, AROS i386 ABIv0, AROS ARM ABIv0, AROS x64 ABIv1 NonSMP
