Mouser,

I've experienced the same as cemole - are your recommendations to reinstall the plugins over what's there now - or to reinstall FARR?

Thanks - Jon.

Mouser,

Minor point UI/usability point.  I've got a lot of aliases in "my_aliases" (more than a screenful) and when I want to move an alias from the top to the bottom - I would expect to be able to drag the alias to the bottom of the visible window and since there are more aliases off the page - it would scroll automatically until the end of the alias list was reached - but it doesn't.

Minor point though - all the rest looking good.

J.

Here's one that processes IP addresses:
1000>>>IP address>->Reverse DNS via demon.net of $$1 | http://www.demon.net/cgi-bin/netToolIP.cgi?$$1>n>Reverse DNS via ripe.net of $$1 | http://www.ripe.net/fcgi-...y_string=&searchtext=$$1>n>Telnet to $$1 | c:\windows\system32\telnet.exe $$1>n>Ping -t $$1 | c:\windows\system32\ping.exe -t $$1>+>([0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3})>ro>

And one that does stuff using UK postal codes

Justice,

That's so funny - I just wrote something almost exactly the same (although I hadn't spotted that you can use RegEx as an argument to SetTitleMatchMode ... so mine was case sensitive.

I must admit - I think there could be a lot of mileage of Skrommel and Mouser teamed up and put the AHK script engine inside FARR - or alternatively ...

Mouser  - are you listening? - had a way of getting any scripts/executable to contribute to the list of things that you can pick from.  I'm a Mac user at home and power of QuickSilver is that there are so many plug-ins for it - and they're generally reasonably quite straightforward to make in AppleScript ... so I was thinking ...

It would be great to enhance the alias function a little bit - so that you could have two types of alias - one as per the existing alias - and a new type of alias - that can contribute to the result list.  For example:

1. You set up this new type of alias and when FARR matches that alias (e.g. "+killpid") - it calls an executable that you define -

1000>>>Kill PID>->C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Scripts\GenerateKillPID>+>killpid (.*)

That executable runs (and say for example gets the list of windows names) and passes back a string (delimited by ||) along the lines of the following:

Kill Notepad, 1000, c:\program files\scripts\killpid 1021 || Kill Outlook, 1000, c:\program files\scripts\killpid 998 || Kill Firefox, 1100, c:\program files\scripts\killpid 521

3. FARR then displays the "friendly name" in the list, i.e. "Kill Notepad" along with a weighting that can be put with the rest of the results, then the string that FARR executes if that option is chosen.

I think this would be relatively easy to implement (although I'm not volunteering to do it, Mouser), not be too unperformant (since FARR would only execute GenerateKillPID when it matches the alias and allow FARR to be really expandable without too much bloat.

What does everyone think?

Jon.

I would *love* to see a way of easily switching to already open programs.  I.e. type Firefox and if it's running - a switch_to command would pop up allowing us to super-quickly switch.  This ought to be pretty easy - you could either get the list of processes (i.e. the same as the "Processes" tab in the task manager) or applications (i.e. the "Applications" tab in the task manager).

This would be just great.

Cheers - Jon.

Ah gotcha - but it doesn't work with aliases (or at least one in particular) ... ??  Sad

For example: I type http://news.bbc.co.uk and it finds the alias "surf" and quite rightly launches the news.bbc.co.uk webpage - hooray.  So I start typing "http://news" again and I would expect it to find the "http://news.bbc.co.uk" that I typed in earlier - but it doesn't find anything.

Am I missing something or is there a restriction about which type of history is searched?

Jon.

I know it's late for new feature requests - but I find myself typing a lot of command strings multiple times.  I use FARR as my main launcher (for programs, files and websites) and it would be really handy if as well as FARR doing its search of files, folders, aliases, it also searched its own history.

So say yesterday I opened a PowerPoint file and I want to open it again today - it would display both the matching files (as it normally does) and yesterday's entry so I can launch it again quickly.  As an alternative - you might want to introduce an alias like +hist which searches the history and matches the next string with something in the history.

Thanks again for a really great launcher.

Jon.

New bug:
When browsing through directories that contain an "&" character - i.e. an ampersand.  The status bar doesn't show the ampersand and shows the next character as underlined.  (I appreciate that this is windows default behaviour on showing certain types of strings).

Version: 2.0.0.82

Thanks - Jon.
