The goal of this program is to catalog any disk, drive, CD-ROM's ..., storing directory/files structure in textfiles databases which can be searched for files and folders without inserting/connecting the media.
Developed as an exercice to see how it is possible to build a useful application under Microsoft Windows with DrScheme, it should work under Linux and MacOS ... (not really tested ... there must be problems I am not aware of !)
Before reading the following brief documentation, you should launch the presentation by means of the Java Applet below, (click on the " Start " button to begin !)
Catalogs uses a configuration file named ".catalogs", which is located in the same folder than the program.
This file is a scheme a-list :
( ; the folder containing the catalogs ; can be changed from the file menu (catalogs-path "C:\\my catalogs/") ; the font size used by the interface (ui-font-size 8) ; a flag to save a catalog "pretty-printed" ; easier to read, much slower to save or load ! (pretty-print-catalogs #f) )
Current version is 0.7

This program is made with DrScheme, a nice environment to program with Scheme (smart language : try it, you should not be disappointed !)
The presentation is made with TourOperator, one of my others programs (written with Visual Basic, user interface in French ...)
