Default The skiplist :: part 2

Hey there, when i am using the skiplist, it would be perfect if flashfxp does the following thing:

current way of uploading:
process each item in the queue from top to bottom

new way of uploading
search through the entire queue list (to assemble the entire list @ once). Filter the skiplist over it, and then you have the remaining files to be uploaded.

This saves a lot of time because flashfxp does not have to do so much directory switching at the remote site.

Maybe an idea?

hmm... After browsing the board i saw this reply by "MxxCon" on the thread "Improper Queue Time Estimation".
Quote:
...there would be 2 issues if such method is implemented.
1. delay before actual transfer start. and with many dirs/subdirs that can be a very long time...
2. after indexing those dirs flashfxp won't know about newly added files...
Maybe still a sollution can be found for my problem. If it is solved as i have in my mind, transfers would be completed much much faster.

The skiplist is applied while adding the items to the queue, thus matching items are never added into the queue.

With that in mind I don't see how your suggestion would be any faster.

When i drag entire a couple of folders to the que, only the folders are shown. While transferring, flashfxp processes the queue and loads the contents of the folder...

I could be wrong

That is correct, however the files within those folders are not queued until they are reached in the queue.

Sorry but this will not be changed any time soon, if at all.
