    Hello everyone,

    nice to hear development continues
    What made me wonder -> title speaks about "beta versions" content says "alpha"...
    I think you are rising a thread with future-development in your mind!?
    So, besides the news you gave -> any news about the 2GB-limit?

    Best regards!

    what you mean? problems with computers having 2+ gb of memory was solved in the 28-jan version

    the topic name means "all the versions before 0.50 release". i don't said "alpha/beta" only for brevity. nevertheless, i plan to fix most dramatic problems in current alpha version and finally deliver a beta one

    Hello everyone,

    sorry for confusing you. I meant your posting here:
    http://encode.su/forums/index.php?ac...ic=599&page=10
    where you spoke about problems compressing ">1GB data" with "current internal version".

    Best regards!

    Wow, amazing work Bulat! Thanks for the great program.
    Seems that the best archivers are made by Russians. Keep on good work!
    I also nominated FreeArc for Best Project/Best New Project.

    Hello everyone,

    take your time, I'll get it this way or that
    But one question might be allowed in the meantime: will it be possible to revers the process of making Sfx out of arc (meaning: exe -> arc)

    edit: done! 21.31 MEST

    Best regards!

    it's supported both in GUI (and you've translated this option! ) -look at "Make EXE" options and via cmdline - command "s-" or options "-sfx-". actually, you may use RAR docs to forecast most of FreeArc command/option names

    Hello everyone,

    @ Bulat: did you notice that FreeArc crashes if a file inside the "file-manager" is double-clicked?
    I tried with "arc.ini" and "freearc.ini"
    Start FreeArc.exe with double-click from CoolExplorer -> files are listed -> double-click on arc.ini -> bye-bye FreeArc...
    Language set to "german", WinXP SP3, 512 MB RAM, AMD 1700+

    Best regards!

    I have filed a Bug in Launchpad that FreeArc is not in the official Ubuntu repositories.
    You can support this by subscribing.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/473471

    So maybe we get better Linux support by registration at Launchpad

    new version:
    • by popular requests, restored arc.arc distribution variant
    • LZP decompression made 2x faster, meaning 20% faster -m3t decompression and 5% faster -m4t..9t decompression
    • new mode -mex5 = -m4b + m/t ppmd
    -mex5t
    Compressed 1 file, 100.000.000 => 23.020.387 bytes. Ratio 23.0%
    Compression time: cpu 44.55 secs, real 18.90 secs. Speed 5.291 kB/s
    Testing time: cpu 36.89 secs, real 11.17 secs. Speed 8.953 kB/s

    -m4t
    Compressed 1 file, 100.000.000 => 22.921.358 bytes. Ratio 22.9%
    Compression time: cpu 33.48 secs, real 33.23 secs. Speed 3.009 kB/s
    Testing time: cpu 26.79 secs, real 26.48 secs. Speed 3.777 kB/s

    at average, it's 2x faster with 0.5% less compression

    a few questions i got by email:

    first of all thanks for FreeArc. I've been using it for almost two years
    now and I'm amazed to see the progress you have been making.
    I also want to thank you for srep. I love this little tool and I hope you
    implement it into the gui-version of FreeArc soon, even if only
    experimental. I know you don't plan on doing that, but please re-consider.
    It would turn a lot of heads towards FreeArc and it would make the whole
    process of using it much easier

    Sorry for bothering you via email, but the forum you linked to on your
    site (encode.dreamhosters.com) doesn't accept new registrations or I would
    have opened a thread there.



    I have several questions and also some bugreports. My main concern is your
    dll and iss-script for InnoSetup. I recently tried to install an arc-file
    that I created with the "-m=srep+delta+7z"-switch, but I only get the
    following error:

    "Decompression failed with error code -1
    Archive test.arc is damaged
    or not enough free space"

    The arc-file works flawlessly with FreeArc so I assume some special
    support for arc-wrapped third-party archives like 7z and lzma is needed to
    make this work. Could you please implement that? That would be great.

    While trying to get this to work I stumbled over a bug.
    FreeArc_Example.exe worked great with a normal arc-file , but
    FreeArc_Example-Ext.exe gave out the following error with the same file:

    "Runtime Error (at 87:3390)

    Invalid floating point operation"


    Shouldn't be much of an issue since FreeArc_Example.exe works nicely, just
    thought I'd let you know anyway.



    I also ran into a few bugs with FreeArc:

    - Whenever FreeArc runs out of space it closes the status window without
    an error message. An error message would be highly appreciated. Even
    better would be a dialog message asking the user whether he wants to
    cancel or resume. WinRar does that and whenever I run out of space, I can
    just resume the process without losing any work. This is a great feature
    and FreeArc would certainly profit from it.



    - If I use "Add to archive" in the integrated explorer menu and then press
    cancel in the upcoming settings-window I receive 2 error windows (0.61
    alpha):

    "thread blocked indefinitely"

    "gtk2hs_store_unref_node_impl: interrupted"

    Doing the same in FreeArc directly works without problems though.



    - Using the -m switch with arc.exe caused quite some trouble. Using the
    following line that I found on one forum didn't work, even though it did
    for that user who posted it:

    -m=srep64+exe+delta+lzma:256mb:max:bt4:128:mc10000

    Arc complained about srep64 being an unrecognized command. However, it was
    present in the powerpack\bin-directory:

    "Unsupported compression method or error in parameters: srep64"

    Using just srep worked however. Is that a bug or did I do something wrong?



    I'm also one of the x64 Windows users that never got the explorer
    integration to work. I can now report that 0.61 alpha finally fixed that
    problem


    While I'm at it I want to bother you with a few requests

    - Please include a proper documentation. This goes for FreeArc as well as
    the command line version. For example I tried finding infos about chaining
    commands with the -m switch, but couldn't find anything other than other
    people's syntax on the forums you linked to with most of them not working
    for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one Other issues for example are
    FreeArc's space requirements during compression. Since it doesn't behave
    like other programs in that regard it should be mentioned somewhere or
    even shown in the progress windows so that people know how much space they
    have to free up beforehand.

    - Is there a way to set up the dictionary size manually in FreeArc? It
    doesn't look like it. However, the changelog for 0.60 claims that bigger
    dictionaries are supported now. How can I make use of that or does FreeArc
    assign the size dynamically based on my system's ram size? My last info
    was that FreeArc was limited to 96MB sized dictionaries, however the
    compression settings seem to use the exact same values as in older
    versions apart from the new ultra setting. Would I have to use that one to
    make use of bigger dictionaries? (See how necessary a documentation is to
    clarify what's up with the new and old features )

    - Please make the error messages more understandable. This would help a
    great deal to track down errors. For example if FreeArc runs out of ram it
    just says "Error in (de)compressing tempfile". This could have a thousand
    reasons. 7z is more straightforward by saying "couldn't allocate memory".
    There it's immediately clear what the problem is.

    - While FreeArc beats 7z by hundreds of MB in my recent compression tests
    (compressing the 10GB game directory of Mass Effect), it performs worse
    than 7z in combination with srep. You seem to recognize that yourself by
    using 7z with srep in arc.ini instead of FreeArc itself. How come arc
    performs so much worse in that case and do you already work on a way to
    improve that?

    - Is there a difference between srep and srep64 in regard of compression
    efficiency?
    and
    Today I found something which might be two new bugs when using arc.exe.
    One occured when I tried to use a 256MB dictionary with lzma:

    -m:lzma:a1:256m:max:bt4:128:mc10000

    arc.exe errored out saying that it couldn't allocate enough RAM:

    "ERROR: can't allocate memory required for (de)compression in lzma:256m:normal:bt4:128:mc10000
    Arc.exe: wclose: invalic argument (bad file descriptor)"

    If I let it choose the dictionary size automatically it opted for 177MB. I have 4GB RAM in my comp (Win7 x64) and never had any problems using 256MB dictionaries, neither in 7z nor FreeArc. I usually have between 3300 and 3500MB free RAM available. When arc complained, I freed up even more, yet that didn't help. Could there be a 2GB address limit in the command line version?

    Another bug happened in conjunction with 7z. When using the following syntax:

    -m=7z:x9:d256m

    7za would error out complaining about incompatible functions. This error message usually hints at a faulty syntax, but this only happened when I fed it a 7GB-file through arc. If I used something much smaller in the 50MB range it worked without any problems. May be this is a 7z-specific problem, may be arc doesn't handle the switches correctly. Whatever it is, it seems to be related to file sizes.

    arc.exe uses 7za 9.07. Is there a way to update it to 9.10 manually?

    1. i also plan to slowly integrate srep. there are some improvements that i can do with separate executable before starting to do integration

    2. "-m=srep+delta+7z" - you need to have arc.ini, srep and 7zip available for installer. it's described in FreeArc_Example-Ext.iss

    3. "
    -m=srep64+exe+delta+lzma:256mb:max:bt4:128:mc10000" - use srep instead. or copy srep section in arc.ini into srep64 section. srep64.exe is 64-bit version that can compress files larger than 20gb, there is no any other differences

    4. my prorities ATM is 7z.dll support and GUI usability. documentation and compression-related fetures are postponed, and most important part here is fixing shortages of -mex modes. i.e. all these things - srep, dispack and so on - get only small time slices

    5. memory, dictionary, arc.ini and oher things are described in docfile

    6. "You seem to recognize that yourself by
    using 7z with srep in arc.ini instead of FreeArc itself." - what you mean? fa sucks compared to 7zip in two areas - it still have only bcj1 and lzma1 compressors. i will fix that but not soon. and of course you should compare srep+fa to srep+7z

    7. "-m:lzma:a1:256m:max:bt4:128:mc10000" doesn't work, it should be "-m=...". largest dictionary you can use is 254 or 255 mb.

    8. check which 7-zip version (32 or 64-bit) was called by freearc. 32-bit doesn't support dict>128m. when you compress small files, 7zip automatically reduces dictionary you've requested

    9. "arc.exe uses 7za 9.07. Is there a way to update it to 9.10 manually" - i don't see much difference, but yes - you can update these two files yourself

    9.

    2. thanks! that did the trick somewhat. it made the installer extract the nested 7z from the arc-file, but i had hoped it would open the 7z within the arc and extract the files inside it like freearc does.

    i actually checked out the iss-files, but unfortunately russian is not one of the languages that i speak

    6. i actually did compare srep+fa with srep+7z. my test corpus was the installation directory of mass effect. using only fa and 7z made fa beat 7z by a whopping 210MB, but using srep made 7z beat fa by about 80MB (with same dictionary size). after some more optimizations of the 7z command line i was able to improve the compression by 25Mb, making 7z more efficient by 105MB in conjunction with srep.

    7. the m: was a typo. i did use m=
    i thought dictionaries over 1GB were supported since freearc 0.60?

    8. this happened with the lzma-option which i thought was freearcs internal routine. 7z wasn't invoked at all.

    9. true, there isn't much difference, but just out of curiosity. i replaced the 7z-file in the powerpack-directory, but arc still loaded the old 7z from somewhere. that's why i wondered.

    thanks for answering my email and for putting up with all my silly questions so patiently

    here's a small treat. i translated the dialogue from the iss-files into german:

    I couldn't see "taskbar" and "ending" being used so my translation might be a little shaky there without context. If you need more translation work to be done, I'd be glad to help.

    Edit: updated the translation

    7. dict up to 1gb supported only with ht4 matchfinder. hc4 - up to 511mb, bt4 - up to 255mb

    8. "-m=7z:x9:d256m" will not work with 32-bit 7-zip

    9. first 7-zip in PATH is invoked. try to run 7z from command prompt

    ps: forget to say that the rest of your questions are known problems.

    thanks for translation, i will add it. some strings used in one ISS example, some only in another, it's why you failed searching theirs usage

    thanks for clearing all this up.

    as for 2.) is there no way to extract the files in a 7z nested in an arc-file instead of 7z itself with your innoscript?

    this is my arc-structure:

    test.arc
    > filecache.7z
    >> $$arcdata$$.dll

    I want to extract $$arcdata$$.dll directly, but only filecache.7z gets extracted. Is there any way around this? FreeArc opens $$arcdata$$.dll directly without even showing the 7z. I had hoped unarc.dll would do the same.


    Btw, forgot to translate a word for the script:

    ger.ArcBreak=Installation abgebrochen!

    Also, in "ArcInfo" you seem to use an untranslated term: ??
    Does that mean "file"?

    Hi i am new to this forum and a complete noob about compression especially when it comes to compress using CMD. Please can anyone explain to me what is the difference between -mex5 & -mex6 or -mex6 & -mex7..etc. I mean there would be some difference like suppose -mex5 utilizes 2 cores while -mex9 takes 4 cores or more ram or utilizes larger dictionary.etc . pls try to explain it in as simple manner as possible.

    each next -mex (starting with 5->6 transition) utilizes more ram and there are no more changes

    Well thanks Bulat for your reply but i have one last question how many cpu threads would the topmost -mex9 method take and how much ram or this method automatically adjust itself and utilizes the threads that are available on the machine? The machine which i am running write now has an Intel Pentium dual core 3.2GHZ,1GB Ram and i am running winxp sp2 32 bits so upto which method can i use,obviously not the -mex9 because i will be short on ram and if i understand these -mex methods correctly then also on cpu threads.
