...made a quick test with DirPrintOK (to see how it performs in comparison to FolderStyle
- the choosen folder (containing my music) had 15726 files in 728 folders
- it took about 5 minutes to scan all files, although the rough structure stood after 1 or 2 seconds
- I disabled nearly all of the 326 (!!!) columns and then exported to HTML
- the export took 2 minutes, the resulting HTML-file was 158 MB (!) and contained all 326 columns (although I disabled them), the structure of the page was... useless, well, it could also have been a simple text file
- exported to .txt... the resulting file was 11 MB (!) again containing all 326 columns and thus throwing out a structure that's barely readable (well, without the unnecessary columns it would not get better)
- checked again that only the desired 4 or 5 columns are active and exported once more to html... file size now 157 MB and only the desired columns, but...
Conclusion: as directory lister no competitor to FolderStyle, DirHTML and Snap2HTML, all 3 produce HTML-pages from 500kb (Snap2HTML) to 4 MB (DirHTML) for this folder, the processing time is way faster (max. 10 seconds) and the result is read- and usable. Same with text output - readable files of about 200kb for all 3.
Yes, DirPrintOK can extract a lot of informations (but a lot of the 326 columns are duplicates and the majority is confusing) and perhaps it outruns all when it comes to printing, but for the purpose of listing directories it is by far inferior.
