Duplicates for Directory History

Discussion in 'Suggestions' started by Stephen Howe, Jan 14, 2010.

    Using TCC 11.00.37.

    I see in OPTION, handling for Duplicates in Command-line history
    But where is the equivalent for Directory history (Ctrl-PgUp) ???
    I could have sworn this was present as .INI directives (maybe I am wrong). Perhaps the OPTION dialog does not have a front-end on to them.

    Could I ask that this gets added to version 12 if missing?
    If start re-using a directory I used say 30 minutes ago, I would like to move it to the front of the saved directory list.

    Also the long-standing request of immediate addition of a directory and not only saved when leaving the directory.

    There are no directives for duplicates in the directory history (and never
    have been -- it's never been requested before).

    I will add it to the suggestion list for v12.

    Not *that* long-standing -- AFAIK it was first requested during the v11
    beta. It's already on the suggestion list for v12, but it would require a
    major rewrite of the directory handling, so the probability is not high.

    Thanks. But on experiment I have just found that the most recent directory does seem to migrate to the bottom of the pile (which is right)
    and is unique in the list - exactly what I want. I dont know what lead me to think it was otherwise - must be getting old or tired. A senior moment.

    Well I did request this as far back as version 9.
    Version 10 I forgot to re-request it, but I did for version 11.

    Thanks for support
