Hi Greg,

I will need to update the folder dll to include this this perl extension :(

Check back here in the next day or two and a new dll should be available.

Thanks for the bug report.

Cheers Jussi

Hi Greg,

I just checked the xFolder dll and it already seems to have pm defined as a perl file type :?

Do you have the pm file extension defined in the Perl Document Type :?:

Could you also try the current xFolder.dll found here: http://www.zeusedit.com/z300/xFolder.zip

Just backup your current xFolder.dll and replace it with the one in this zip file.

Cheers Jussi

:shock: whoa... so i got the newer DLL (67k vs the older 37k)... and the PM file has little folding icons on the bar, but only at the closing } of each subroutine... and when i clicked on one the program dissappeared :-\ ...

and yes... i'm sure i have PM as a file extension in the Per Doc Type...

thanks for your quick reply btw :)

Which version of Zeus are you both running :?:

As you can see from the size, this dll has changed quite a bit. Normally these changes do nothing but add a new language and as such don't break the interface.

But a little while ago there was a change to the interface of this dll, meaning it will only work with the latest verison Zeus.

It sounds like this might be what is going wrong in this particular case :(

3.94a

That would explain the problem.

This was the first Zeus verison to have the folding feature, but unfortunately as more languages where added, some problems with the original design where identified. This forced a change to the interface and so the current folding dll will not work with that version of Zeus :(
and i think there's only one of me
Thats just me getting myself confused again :)

Cheers Jussi

I don't mind offering free upgrades to anyone finding a serious bug in the Zeus software (ie crash, data corruption etc).

But I hardly see this as a serious bug. The folding is working, it just isn't working for the one particular file extension.

Zeus is just like all other software, in that it does have and always will have bugs. I just like to think that Zeus does not have any serious bugs.

i feel like bug fixes of any size should be free... if you make major code overhauls or interface changes or implemented new features like folding(causing a full version change [e.g. 3->4] instead of a smaller change 3.94a->3.95...) then i'd understand an upgrade fee...

in this case, you have simply made the program do what you told me ,and anyone else , it would do.

Below is a link to much older version of the xfolder.dll that has folding for the require perl pm files:

http://www.zeusedit.com/z300/xfold94c.zip

IMPORTANT: Make sure to make a backup copy of your current xFolder.dll file, download the zip file and rename the xFolder94c.dll contained.

IMPORTANT: This dll will only work with for the older 3.94x versions of Zeus. There is no need to use this file if you are running a later version of Zeus.
