Post by kenalpine »

v4.0 b10: The above file has suddenly begun appearing in my download directory. Size is about 4.6Mb with no extension. (The nnnnn... represents a 10-digit number). Whassup?

Thats the new temp-file, if everything goes right, newsleecher downloads/decodes directly into that file and renames it when its complete....

Unfortunately that new engine is'nt totally fail-proof in its current state, so, for example, temp-files are'nt deleted when you remove file from your queue, while they're downloading...

The naming is'nt the best idea either, i would prefer something like "filename.ext.nltemp".

There is no solution as this is not a bug or an error.

Alright. I'll bite. WTF are they? I have 97.2 MB of this crap sitting in one directory alone. I have a newsflash for Newsleecher: I am deleting all of them.

They are temporary files for downloading articles. If they are remaining in your download directory after the downloads are completed then it's a bug.

Maybe not a "bug", in the sense that it's "working as designed", but if the files hang around when there are no files remaining to be transferred, it's certainly an "error."

Beta11 should get rid of the temporary files remaining.

Strange, never get those myself. You might want to post about it in the beta11 thread [/url]

This bug/feature is making my Newsleecher unusual. I can't restart my queue after I deleted an in progress binary. I keep getting the error above and it pauses everything.

Fixed the problem by recreating the directory it was complaining about manually.
