SFS2 with OS 4.0 Final

Is SFS2 completely useless (unnecessary) under OS 4.0 Final?

What makes you think that?

FFS still doesn't support files >4 GB and neither does SFS1.

I guess I misunderstood this quote from Hyperion's website:
"64 bit support for file sizes."

I also noticed that the SFS webpage does not have a link to SFS2 anymore.

Strange.

The link's still there. It's to the right of the SFS1 download link. There's even a OS3.x/68k version (IIRC that wasn't there before).

Yep; you're right!

(How embarassing.)

No, but it has some bugs, at least ACTION_GET_FILE_SIZE64 (IDOS->GetFileSize()) is broken, and it doesn't support the new directory scanning API of AmigaOS4 final yet, only the 64 bit functions which were in Update4 already.

But even if it wouldn't have the bugs and missing features, for normal users it's of course still useless since there is next to no software which supports files > 4GB, but it was never for normal users anyway: It's for developers to be able to test the 64 bit support they added in their software, but that didn't happen (yet?) AFAIK. Except for lha and DvPlayer which support large files now, and of course some of my own software, for example a DVD burning tool which doesn't support image files > 4GB would be quite useless

As long as there is no AmigaOS software which supports large files the large file support in dos.library and file systems like SFS2 will stay useless

For 64 bit (files >= 4GB) support you need 3 things:
- dos.library functions for large files (included in AmigaOS4 Final, and partially in Update4 already).
- A file system which supports large files (for example SFS2, SFS 1.x and FFS2 don't support files >= 4 GB).
- Applications supporting large files by using the new dos.library functions (I only know 4 which do).

Actually, I was planning on experimenting with burning >4GB .iso files using FryingPan at the moment.

No idea if FryingPan supports files > 4 GB or not, I've never used it and don't need it since I've written my own DVD burning tool some years ago , but it's very unlikely that the AmigaOS4 version of FryingPan supports large files already. Check it's documentation, at least 99% of the software which doesn't mention anything about 64 bit file size support in it's documentation doesn't work with files > 4GB.

You are right. The .iso gets stuck at 4.29496 GB.

So where can I down load your DVD burning tool?

I agree with that sentiment, is it in a useable form, and is it available anywhere?
