A number of software updates

Along with officially releasing TAPClean 0.38 on Sourceforge, I made version 0.40 of TAPClean Front End and version 3.4 of the IECHost GUI client available within my Software page.

    Very nice! Speaking of TAPClean, I was toying with some old turbo tape compilations a couple of days ago. I happened to notice that if the filename in the turbo header is longer than 16 characters, TAPClean will detect the file as an ANIROG TAPE. The parameters -noanirog and -doturbo don’t seem to help, either. That said, I don’t know if such long filenames should have been allowed by the turbo software on the C64 in the first place … 😛

    • Yep, the scanner needs a complete rewrite at some point as it does have an arguably unnecessary requirement on header contents being blank after the 16-char filename. I had to patch such expectation in order to support “Micrus Copy” too, so it’s probably about time to change the code to extend support.

    Great job!
    The link for the entire Windows-package says “TAPClean Front End 0.39 for Windows” but when hovering you get: tapcleanfe-0.40-“yada-yada”. Seems only two of the five files under TCFE downloads have a complete link, you need to copy and paste a little to get it working on the other ones – or some relative file link is missing. On my side at least.
    Again – great job, thanks for helping with tape data preservation.
