exclusions *inside* ZIP files
« on: September 25, 2018, 08:17:26 pm »
What files inside a *ZIP archive are excluded?

For example, I created FOO.zip
Inside is a PLAIN TEXT file named bar.zip.

When I do a FiF, LookIn:*, look inside ZIP archives, with no exclusions, Slickedit does not match bar.zip.


FindFiles also doesn't list FOO.zip/bar.zip.
It does list the other files inside of FOO.zip

When you exclude Binary Files, any extension specified for the Binary Files language mode is always excluded. That's why .zip is being excluded. You can remove .zip from your Binary Files language mode if you really want to have some .zip files that are not really binary files.

I did this search with no exclusions.

Looks like the "Look in zip/word/excel" check box needs to be checked to reproduce this. Not sure what is going on yet.

This problem has to do with the fact that SlickEdit does not support .zip (or other special container files) inside a .zip file (or other special container file).

Fixed for beta 5. SlickEdit still doesn't fully support containers in containers.
