This software provides a useful and usable front-end for
Stephan Boberg's LHA software. Since LHA is CLI-based,
the beginning user is often intimidated by the program's
interface. By providing a useful, yet simple, graphical
user interface (GUI) to the LHA software, this application
makes the use of LHA much simpler for the average user.
** NOTE ** This software does not provide the transparent
use of LHA archives as directories or volumes on the Amiga.
Some of the key features of LhA-GUI are:
- Amiga User Interface Style-Guide compliant
- Font and screen adaptive without using any external
libraries. No MUI, Triton, BGUI, etc. is needed.
- Hierarchial (directory tree) listing of an archive's
- Drag and drop support (AppWindows and AppIcons). Simply
drop an LHA archive's icon onto the LhA-GUI interface,
and the archives contents are displayed.
- Iconification support.
- Notification support. If the user changes their Workbench
settings (screen-mode, font, overscan), LhA-GUI knows it,
and re-adjusts accordingly.
- Viewing support (including MultiView under OS-3.x). You
can simply double-click on an an entry in an archive, and
it will automagically be extracted to a temporary location,
and viewed using MultiView. Thus, you can read/view part
of an archive, without extracting the complete thing.
- Preferences settings for LHA options, default directory,
- Under 50K in size.
New in this version (1.12) are the following bug-fixes and
- Online AmigaGuide-based help (OS 3.x only, for now).
- Eliminated Enforcer hits.
- Fixed iconification, notification, and archive extraction
- Enhanced AmigaGuide documentation.
AmigaOS 2.1 or higher, PIPE: device mounted, LHA executable
in your path (registered or unregistered will work).
