What is Niffler?
Niffler is a simple image viewer and browser. The slideshow and navigation commands automatically include images in subdirectories, which can be a great help when searching or browsing a large or deeply-nested image collection. If you like pixel-peeping at magnified images, you might enjoy the fast 2D mouse-dragging option, much more convenient than the traditional scrollbars. The current version of the program also displays image EXIF data and includes several image editing commands.
The program "niffler3-signed.jar" and the simplified versions are no longer available on the page from Norman Hendrich. I had downloaded all files some years ago. The program "niffler3-signed.jar" is the latest I have with much more features than the others. Therefore I have included this program in the file "Niffler-eCS.zip" at the bottom of this page. It include all files you need for running this program. Its a very good program you should try if you are a photographer.
Create a folder (directory) "Niffler". Copy the files to the new folder "Niffler".
The used cmd file
Niffler works very well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have a Niffler.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set CLASSPATH= [drive: Niffler] cd [drive: Niffler]\Niffler java -Xmx512M -Duser.home=[drive: Niffler]\Niffler -jar niffler3-signed.jar 2>Niffler-bugtracker.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Niffler with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced by real drive letters. Save the file and rename it to Niffler.cmd or use/adjust Niffler.cmd from the distribution. This file is copied to the Niffler directory. Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs.
Create a new program object or copy it from the file below. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: Niffler]\Niffler\Niffler.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Niffler".
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find all the files, the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 Niffler icon: Niffler-eCS.zip (766Kb.).
