Last I checked LZW encoding compression only applied to the resources when stored in a resource volume, not to loose files?

Hrm.  I wonder why I needed it for ExtractWave - maybe that utility pulls data out of a resource file instead of a patch file.  I'll have to take a closer look.

...or really any compression at all, besides some basic RLE on views and I think non-vector background images.

Hey Gumby, have you made any progress? I have been cleaning up the old code for the GUI to make it easier to make any needed changes, so no rush. Just curious if you have had a chance to look into it more.

No, not yet. When I find some free time I'll look more into it.

I understand all to well about the lack of time. I am mostly finished with cleaning up the old code.It no longer uses the Registry to store settings. All settings are now XML based. I fixed some ambiguous variables with all camel/lower casings. I've weeded out most of the VB garbage that was a carry over from the original porting from starting it in VB.net. Some awkward methods with a more straight forward ones. It is much more readable code, now and I am ready to make what modifications are needed to build in Unicode support.

I guess I'll shelve it for the time being until You have had a chance to determine if you are willing or can take it on before I implement any kludgy workarounds. Even so, I'll still need to use workarounds for no Unicode support in SoX.

If it's .Net, you basically already have Unicode support.

But AddWav is not. The program is mostly just a GUI for existing programs. All I can do with the NRS version is to come up with workarounds such as copying/renaming Unicode files to ASCII names to use with AddWav and then renaming them back to the Unicode name. I can do that, but would prefer a version of AddWav that I could throw any file at it without resorting to such workarounds.
