I think a lot of people ask this.

I'm tired to find automation for par2, scan, repair, extract (dldone, rarslave) : ugly, buggy....

Ice Ecc does not scan directories and sub-directories either..... Crying or Very sad

Is it not done because :

1) violation of the GPL licence ? (but quickpar use par2 and do not publish the source)

2) to complicate ?

Thanks

Nobody forces you to use PAR2.

1. PAR2 GPL license is serious argument against using PAR2 sources. If somebody ignore some laws, it's his personal problem.

2. More simple to make new format than to modify existing format. Especially if modifications too big. Like difference between .ECC and .PAR2 formats. Theoretically is impossible to make ICE ECC features using .PAR2 format.

I'm forced by others who massively use par2.

It seems that Ecc does not search Ecc files in directories or sub-directories like dldone do.

1. Is he really violating the par2 Gpl licence when building an exe using a GPL code but not with the exe source ?

2. ok. But it's not only me who is tired about quickpar. Some others do, The board just been hacked lol

It's not difficult to add search. I afraid what auto-search can cause potential problems. Why need auto-search? For automatical file verify and repair? But for verify and repair need specify directory with data files. Moreover, file verify/rapair for partially download files are useless.

Yes, if he has not personal permisson allowing to do it.
