What is Procmon64a.exe supposed to do? If I try to run it in Windows 10 64-bit, then I get an error.
I think it's an ARM version for computers which have an ARM processor, such as Microsoft Surface Pro X.

Re: StarOffice (LibreOffice and OpenOffice) variants

Where are ooo-build, Go-oo and Oracle? I've seen no references to those programs anywhere other than on the Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LibreOffice Archived Go-oo homepage The Document Foundation merged all Go-oo patches into LibreOffice, making Go-oo and OxygenOffice Professional...

Re: Rename System requirements to "OS support" (Edit: or "Supported OS")

I agree that line between OS and platform is getting a bit blurrier, but out-of-the-box cross-platform works because the underlying platform (e.g. Java) has been developed for multiple OSes and its integration with theses systems under the hood differs. Their point is to abstract the interaction be...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

but I think north of even two years without any developer activity is safe to consider discontinued. There could be developer activity, but is more difficult to monitor that. I was talking more about releases. For example, you can see the jumps in time between releases with patch or make or sed . I...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

At this point I'd like to hear opinions from other people... I had some notes but before I add more to that, would all parties be comfortable with a separate thread for the comparison of CLI vs. GUI discussion? There's starting to be a lot of subject overlap in this thread could confuse visitors. S...

CLI Database Discussions - defining CLI and GUI

But by that logic, you'd exclude many very useful tools like HandBrake, IfanView, Inkscape, SubtitleEdit, etc, that provide very useful, superior or even unique functions through their CLI mode. They would clearly be marked as dual GUI+CLI tools. Again, this is not from a strict classification stan...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Ultimately it's up to you. I wouldn't include VLC in the CLI database, but I'm not stopping you if you want to add it. Even though it can convert files from the command line and thus can be used as a replacement for ffmpeg for example? Yes, because it, uh, is a GUI program. "CLI by exclusion" as yo...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

Interesting. What I take from this is: CLI by exclusion. The mode of usage: GUI/commands. Yeah, that's pretty much how I'd define it. GUI with CLI mode, like Inkscape. It can have all the features of a GUI program while having a CLI mode in addition . MPC-HC can be made (even just with parameters) ...

Re: CLI Database Discussions

I think there are grey areas: For example, gplay.exe is such a simple console player that it has no options or output or window or anything. It just plays the audio file you throw at it . But so does pretty much any other GUI media player if you do app.exe file.mp3 . Does the lack of a GUI window a...

Re: China blocks TLS 1.3

Global politics aside, the power of the few big tech firms are terrifying.
