The purpose of the software is to concatenate:
There are many options appropriate for plain text documents:
If the Finder view is set to by Icon or by Small Icon, the documents are joined in the selection order. That is, click on the first document, shift-click on the second, and so on, then drag&drop. To use the document name alphabetical order, view by Name, Select All, and drag&drop.Ramsey French brought to my attention that this may not work. Technote 1121 says:
Finder 8.1 honors the order in which a group of icons are selected. The order can be important for subsequent commands to that group, like a Print or Open command.Although this applies to selections made by shift-clicking or dragging, it does not apply to selections made in ordered lists with "Select All".
Here is what Peter William De Bonte had to say about my application:
I just wanted to compliment you on the speed of ChunkJoiner. I don't know how you do it, but I've tried six or seven file concatenators in the past twelve hours and the three others that actually worked required at least twice the time to join my 1.44MB gzip chunks. ChunkJoiner read in and wrote over 6MB in what seemed like 6 seconds! Smokes!
As a programmer myself (geez, I've spent so much time joining files now I probably should have just written my own... oh well :), I am darn impressed with your code! :)
P.S. - I'm only running this thing on a IIci reading and writing to a 90M Bernoulli Transportable (hardly modern technology :) and CJ still made quick work of it!
