command line version of "file > export" to .efu

Post by nod5 » Fri Oct 14, 2016 1:08 pm

I request a command line option to do what "file > export" does in the GUI.

The command line has a "-create-filelist" command but that is a very slow in comparison. When I do "file > export" on a SSD drive with search string "C:\" the save is immediate. When I do "-create-filelist" the command takes about 17 seconds.

The new command could use format similar to that of "-create-filelist".

-export-filelist <filename> <path or search string>

It's on my TODO list:

-export command line option -this will probably be added to the command line interface.

I'll be updating the command line interface ES once the Everything 1.4.1 beta is stable.

Thanks for the suggestion.

+1 for this feature. This application is super awesome, I've been looking quite some time now for a tool like this. What I am trying to do currently is use everything to create the filelist, then run findstr dos command to search the contents for specific filename wildcards. The searches I perform are looking for approx 600 different filename\wildcards and using findstr to do this takes a very long time (I typically get frustrated with it and kill the process after approx 40 minutes...) On another note, there's a limit of 8191 character's that can be entered into a dos command, so while I can get everything to search for multiple filename\wildcards (and bring up the results in the UI), I have to split my search into multiple searches as to not exceed the character limit. Is there a way to pass the filename\wildcards to search for in the -config ini file? When do you think the -export option will be released?

I've started work on the new Everything Command Line Interface, no idea when it will be ready, sorry.
