How do I create my own plug in for FileLocator Pro

0 votes

I have some files that are encoded in different code pages, e.g. EBCDIC. Is it possible to create an extension for FileLocator Pro so that files with a given extension can be translated into text that FileLocator Pro understands?

Yes you can create your own plug-ins to 'interpret' files for FileLocator Pro, using the same plu-in functionality that FileLocator Pro uses to read certain file types.

A sample plug-in called SamplePlugIn.TailDataInterpreter can be found in this sample C++ Visual Studio project:

The plug-in reads the 'tail' of any file associated with the plug-in, which in this case has been associated with the .log file type.

The ReadMe.txt file contains more information about the project.
