Another throwaway utility in case anyone ever finds some kind of use for it … PDF Page Extract. Something created last year to work around limitations in Tracker PDF-XChange Editor.

I have decided that it’s time to post a “draft” as it were of the PowerShell-Haters Handbook. It’s not a book yet, and most likely never will be. More will be added in time, no doubt.

After a mere four years, I have updated 7-ade. Version 1.1 incorporates additional rule actions requested by Santo Nucifora (back in 2018) and José junior, as well as a number of fixes for specific archive contents. Unwrap expansion is now applied to RPM files, so long as the inner file does not use Zstandard compression, as 7-Zip does not support that format. The rule specification is also tweaked to remove the need to maintain a list of rule names in a separate setting, although the old format remains valid indefinitely. The ability to view debug output in DebugView is now documented, in case anyone needs help debugging rules or otherwise desires to investigate unexpected behaviour.
