What is this tool about?
Recently we have made available the http://filename.pro as a service to provide information about files. This information is provided by volunteers and this tool is used for submitting files onto the website. For more info about this service, please read http://reboot.pro/17148/ or visit http://filename.pro/discussions

This tool is made available as a Java program that was tested to run under Linux (tested in Ubuntu) and Windows. Possibly it should run fine under MacOSX as well other OS that support Java.

In the future we want to provide good quality information about files, their dependencies, previous versions, vulnerabilities and discover if a given file is reliable or not. We need your help to make this dream possible.

- From Windows explorer, double-click
- From Windows/Linux command line, type "java -jar filename.pro.jar"

*note to linux users:
- You need to set file as executable on your desktop. Right-click-> Properties -> Set as executable

First time setup:

The tool needs to know your personal key. When running for the first time it will ask for your individual key. This way it becomes possible to know who is providing information and later provide a list of the most active contributors.

To get a key, you need to login to the site and visit http://filename.pro (just click on the button that appears when running the app for the first time)

Your help counts

Each accepted file will become part of the database and you will be highlighted as the contributor that made it possible. We are building a database for the future, thank you for helping and providing feedback.

Press the "support topic" to write your opinion/feedback about this tool. Suggestions are very welcome, thanks!
