[Thunar-dev] [DES-EMA] Actions extensions in File Managers

Hi guys,

I have release a few days ago Nautilus-Actions 3.0 [1] which
(almost) fully implements the DES-EMA specification [2] in
its 0.14 version.

As a side effect, the Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool may
be used to also create KDE, XFCE, and so on, actions :)

While I was writing some sort of user's manual, it appeared
to me that, IMHO, the multiple execution feature should not
only depend of the first (significant) parameter of the command.

More precisely, I have at least one use case where I do want
control this multiple execution. This is when the command is
just a display of the parameters. E.g. we cannot just display
the content of the space-separated list of basenames (%B) as,
according to v 0.14 spec, this would successively display one
basename for each selected element..

I'd so like propose an optional 'noop' parameter (say %o/%O),
which would be relevant regarding of this multiple execution

Would you be kind enough to give me your opinions in this matter ?
