"Everything" version 1.3.0 EFU syntax

Post by void » Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:23 am

An Everything File URL (EFU) file is a CSV file with the following format:

Code: Select all

Filename,Size,Date Modified,Date Created,Attributes
"C:\New text document",1234,123456789012345678,123456789012345678,8208
.
.
.
Only the Filename column header is required.
All other column headers can be omitted.

Filename

Filename should be the full path and filename in double quotes.
The filename can be any length and can contain any characters.
To escape a double quote use a triple double quote: """

Filenames can be relative to the file list by prefixing a ... or .. or . etc,
or by excluding a root path.

For example:

Code: Select all

"..\somefile.txt"
"subfolder\somefile2.txt"
Filenames can be relative to the root of the EFU file list by using a '\\' prefix

Code: Select all

\folder\file.txt
Filenames can be local file systems, a UNC path or a URL scheme name, for example:

Code: Select all

C:\folder\file.txt

Code: Select all

\\server\share\folder\file.txt

Code: Select all
