Hi

I don't like the Explorer default of not showing the folder structure. So I want the folders on when Explorer launches. Hence the /e flag when launching Explorer.

    To change the default, set HKCR\Folder\shell\(Default) to explore. Underfining said value or setting it to open will restore the default behaviour.
      I did not knew that, thank you.

      But as soon as you use a directory as parameter, you have to use the /e to make it work (on W2K at least)

      And it came to pass that in time the Great God Om spake unto Brutha, the Chosen One: "Psst!"

[Corion]: And performance linear to the number of registered one-shots doesn't feel that bad. Maybe I should collect statistics on how many callbacks are outstanding ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Yes, but the longer I thought about efficient hashes mapping the event type back to their callbacks, and how to keep them in sync, the more I thought that all that optimization might just not be worth it, even if it's horribly inelegant
[Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
[Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
[robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
