The plugin is a standard kolibri library (COFF format). The plugin must export the following functions and variables (some features may not be available). Functions may destroy any registers. KFAR also guarantees DF flag is cleared when a function is called, and expects the same for the callback functions.

KFAR interface version, current version is 2.

         struct {unsigned width;unsigned height;}* cur_console_size;
} kfar_info;


int __stdcall plugin_load(kfar_info* info);

Called when the plugin is loaded.

0 successful initialization
1 Initialization error (KFAR will display a message to the user)
2 Initialization error (KFAR will continue without informing the user)


void __stdcall plugin_unload(void);

Called to unload the plugin (when KFAR is being shut down).


HANDLE __stdcall OpenFilePlugin(HANDLE basefile,
         const void* attr, const void* data, int datasize,
         int baseplugin_id, HANDLE baseplugin_instance, const char* name);

Opens plugin that emulates a filesystem on the basis of a file (for example, archive)

basefile file handle (which functions read and seek in kfar_info are applied to)
attr a pointer to a structure with the file attributes in form as they are passed to sysfn 70.1
data the buffer containing the data from the beginning of the file (can be used to determine the file type)
datasize data size in the data. In the current implmentation equals min(1024, file size)
baseplugin_id plugin ID on which panel opened file is located; 0 for default panels
baseplugin_instance The handle returned from the function GetOpenPluginInfo of plugin, determined in baseplug_id
name file name (in a temporary buffer) (full name relative to baseplugin)

If the plugin handles the uploaded file, it must return the new handle which will later be used by kfar to refer to the plugin. In this case, plugin must close basefile using close function of kfar_info (eg closing plugin handle from ClosePlugin or directly in OpenFilePlugin, if basefile is not needed any more).

0 plugin does not handle the transferred file
-1 the operation is interrupted by the user


void __stdcall ClosePlugin(HANDLE hPlugin);

Close handle returned by OpenFilePlugin.


void __stdcall GetOpenPluginInfo(HANDLE hPlugin, OpenPluginInfo* Info);

Get information about the open plugin instance.

typedef struct
        unsigned flags; // bit 0: add the item '..' if it is missing
                         // bit 1: copying is processed by the GetFiles
} OpenPluginInfo;


void __stdcall GetPanelTitle(HANDLE hPlugin, char title[1024],
         const char* host_file, const char* curdir);

Get the title of the plugin panel. host_file parameter coincides with the filename passed to OpenFilePlugin. Curdir parameter is equal to the current folder which is set by SetFolder.


int __stdcall ReadFolder(HANDLE hPlugin, unsigned dirinfo_start,
         unsigned dirinfo_size, void* dirdata);

Reads the current folder. The handle hPlugin was returned from OpenFilePlugin. dirinfo_start is the first file to read, dirinfo_size is how many files to read.


bool __stdcall SetFolder(HANDLE hPlugin, const char* relative_path, const char* absolute_path);

Set the current folder. relative_path is the relative path (".." or the name of the subfolder) absolute_path is the absolute path (folder emulated by the plugin filesystem)


void __stdcall GetFiles(HANDLE hPlugin, int NumItems, void* items[], void* addfile, void* adddir);
         bool __stdcall addfile(const char* name, void* bdfe_info, HANDLE hFile);
         bool __stdcall adddir(const char* name, void* bdfe_info);

Called to copy, if in the flags returned by GetOpenPluginInfo is set bit 1.
This function should be implemented when the standard recursive bypass of folders is inconvenient.
hPlugin is the descriptor created by OpenFilePlugin.
NumItems is the number of elements to copy.
items points to an array of elements to copy, each of which is given by pointer to a BDFE structure.
Special case: NumItems = -1, items = NULL means "all files" (in the current folder and subfolders).
addfile, adddir - callback-functions of kfar. Return false means "break up."
name must specify the name relative to the current folder.
bdfe_info is a pointer to a shortened (40 bytes) record in the format of sysfn 70.5
Opening and closing the handle hFile must be performed by the plugin. The addfile calls only read function.


int __stdcall getattr(HANDLE hPlugin, const char* filename, void* info);

Get information about the file pointed to by filename. The return value and the data must correspond to system function 70.5


HANDLE __stdcall open(HANDLE hPlugin, const char* filename, int mode);

Open the file filename. The mode parameter is reserved and must currently be set to 1.


unsigned __stdcall read(HANDLE hFile, void* buf, unsigned size);

Read size bytes into the buffer buf from the file hFile, previously opened via open. KFAR ensures that the size is a multiple of 512 bytes. Return value: the number of bytes read, -1 on error


void __stdcall setpos(HANDLE hFile, __int64 pos);

Set the current position to pos in the file hFile, previously opened by open. pos must be a multiple of 512 bytes


void __stdcall close(HANDLE hFile);
