Squish on Linux (compile errors)
OT>>> This might be a problem with some tossers, but it's not a problem
OT>>> with the Squish specification itself. It would surprise me, if
OT>>> Squish didn't use the original date for rescanned messages.
ml>> it cannot because it cannot store it properly... seriously, it uses
ml>> the file time record which only has 2 second seconds capability in
ml>> DOS... it should be using a different time record but...
OT> seriously, you are wrong
you might want to look at those sources again, sir... we specifically tracked
this modified time stamp problem down several years ago... every message coming
via squish had the seconds in multiples of two... no odd numbers at all...
the DateTime record is a four byte packed longint... it is not a unix time
number... in C one would break it apart like so...
with the packed time in lTime:
sec = ((lTime>>0) & 0x1f)*2; // 0..60, only even values
min = (lTime>>5) & 0x3f; // 0..59
hour = (lTime>>11) & 0x1f; // 0..23
day = (lTime>>16) & 0x1f; // 1..31
month = (lTime>>21) & 0xf; // 1..12
year = ((lTime>>25) & 0x7f) + 1980; // 1980..2108
i repeat, squish is using the DOS filesystem datetime format for the message
date/time fields... the DOS filesystem datetime format is limited to 2 second
sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set
them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.
