Can't move files between *.rar archives natively

Would it be possible to integrate the ability to copy or move files from one *.rar archive to another *.rar archive natively? When I try this currently using the latest beta version of Opus, I get the error "The operation is not supported by this VFS."

Possible, but also a low priority for us, since it doesn't seem something that's needed often, and would be a lot of work that competes with other features. If more people ask for it then it could happen.

(It is support for Zip, on the other hand.)

Unfortunate, but I appreciate your honesty and quick response.

This script uses a temporary folder to move files and should work just fine with rar archives.


// Version 2021-10-30

function OnClick(clickData) {
    var cmd = clickData.func.command;
    var tab = clickData.func.sourcetab;
    var dtab = clickData.func.desttab;
    var fsu = DOpus.FSUtil();
    cmd.deselect = false;

    if (tab.selected.count == 0) return;
    if (!dtab) return;

    var tmp = fsu.GetTempDirPath();

    cmd.RunCommand('Copy MOVE TO="' + tmp + '"');
    cmd.RunCommand('Copy MOVE FILE="' + tmp + '\\*" TO="' + dtab.path + '"');
