Paul in Houston TX
Thank you Paul.Paul said:Bleachbit uses XML files for control, with lines like this.
It's multi-platform, so path names for more than one platform
are present in the XML. There are 76 XML files in the Cleaners
<action command="delete" search="walk.files"
And for some reason, I don't see a firefox.xml, just a seamonkey.xml.
Also, doing a text search on the source, I'm not seeing how they
access sqlite to do a VACUUM. There is a claim they do a VACUUM to
clean up unused space in .sglite files.
So the source package is a bit weird looking. Not
the evidence I was looking for. Why no Firefox.xml in there ?
Where does the sqlite3 file come from ?
Their builder script, also looks to pack (UPX) the Windows
version. Which isn't that reassuring for guys like me.
I don't have a good set of tools for UPX. I like to
inspect things when I download them. I can always toss
the thing into virustotal.com, but of course the people sourcing
the package can also do that.
When you click the "BleachBit portable (official)" link here...
my downloader dialog says it comes from here.
So you should be aware it hasn't been scanned by sourceforge. It's
an offsite link. Gets 3 hits out of 45. Could be related to packing,
but who knows...
The complexion of the package is quite different in the ZIP.
It has an sqlite3.dll, so that answers the question how it
can VACUUM an .sqlite file.
I got the evercookie from the link on your earlier post.
It set some but they were all stored in flash cookies, no where else.
Since I run a del bat file for those, they were all deleted and never
came back. My bat del's the entire macromedia folder in xp and W7.
I don't use HTLM5. SeaMonkey cache is set for RAM only, not hdd.
