Lightbulb Trader's Little Helper

All these decoding / encoding / fixing / testing / checksumming programs, for every file type and task another one, plus those annoying command line parameters ... So I wrote a Windows tool/frontend I called Trader's Little Helper. It was not written to be the perfect "all in one wonder" but to handle the most important tasks.

Development isn't finished yet (version 0.8.0), but there are a lot of things this tool already has to offer:

- verify & create checksum files (md5 signature, flac fp, md5 fp)
- test flac and ape files
- decode ape, flac, shn files
- list file details (looking for sector boundary errors)

Features to come in the next versions:
- encode wav files to ape, flac, shn
- fix sector boundary errors
- integration via context menu in windows explorer
- drag & drop functionality
- ???

It would be perfect if Trader's Little Helper could decode mkw files too. Unfortunately I didn't found any information about this file format, and the author of mkw/mkwACT can't be contacted (mkwACT homepage is down, email address doesn't work any more). So if you have any information about mkw, please contact me.

I've decided to make my prog public. You can download it here:

Any feedback is appreciated! If there are some good icons out there (for the application itself or those md5, ffp, st5 checksum files) please let me know.

Robert

MKW developer had some serious health issues (don't know what exactly), and ceased development.

This looks like a great project, and very useful tool. Thanks for your efforts.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

The link from your page is in German (best I can tell), and I can't find for download anywhere the program file you refer to. I would be happy to incorporate some of this program into a sourceforge project and host the files there for free (I believe we were in contact about this previously). It would provide reliable hosting for sure.

(You may have to click some buttons before you can download the file ...)
Which buttons should I click?

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Okay I got it. Next question is should one run an executable from someone with only 1 post here?

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I had the same trepidation but roann's user# is 1284 and I figure someone who lurks that long is either one calculating haxzor or just a lurker with better things to type (code) than posts on msgboards. No ill effects from this so far.

I rar'ed it to postable size here but that would take 15 posts
