You can always try some of the online courses that are actually free and some have great forums for help.

MIT has one http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/intro-programming/

www.codecademy.com

This one is for younger people which might help out with understanding the basics  http://code.org/learn


As for basic, there is a program called Liberty Basic while not free is a good learning program http://www.libertybasic.com/

Thanks for all the suggestions. SED looks great and powerful but I will have to get more acquainted with the usage. After searching for more information on SED, I came across this program Replace Text v2.2 from ecobyte software. It can be found here http://www.ecobyte.com/replacetext/ It also happens to be free.

It does exactly what I need and is very fast.

etsmellydog , why did  you open a new thread ?

instead continue in your first one  > http://www.donationcoder....40446.msg377969#msg377969

And I thought I was loosing my mind! I had posted originally from work but when I checked the forum, I could not find the post. I even did a search of my username to see what I had posted and to see if I had posted in another forum section but never turned up the OP. I did this both logged in and not logged in to see if there was another issue. I would welcome the moderator combining the two if possible.

Thanks AbteriX for finding my lost post!

I work with CNC machines that uses gcode for programming vector coordinates and machine function. One program does not output the code in the proper format so I have to manually add spaces, change letters for machine function ect. I would like to do this with a batch type function. I have used Notepad ++ put have not been able to figure out how to do so with it. I am open to all suggestions and programs. Thanks

Quick example, this text;

X00.00Y00.00
Z0.05

Would look like this after edit;

X00.00 Y00.00
S100 M3

The code could be from a few hundred lines to thousands of lines and it sure gets tedious to manually change.

I work with CNC equipment that uses g-code to control the motion. It is a simple text file with machine specific codes and vector positioning. I use a program that outputs the code in a not so generic form and I also need to change some of the codes for use with a laser. I need to add spaces, replace characters ect and would like to do so with the least amount of manual repetition. I have used Notepad ++ but have not figured out how to accomplish this. Any ideas or programs to use would be great. Thanks!

I had some fun with this awhile ago. I found a program called Reboot Restore RX which will reset a windows machine back to a set baseline. I installed a virtual XP machine without any virus software. I then went trolling installing everything that popped up on downloaded programs and websites. I would click yes to every offer. I could bring the system to a crawl within a few minutes. The browser would become unusable in the first few downloads. I certainly learned a lot in a small amount of time.
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Microsoft skips Windows 9 due to Win 95-98 legacy code. on: October 06, 2014, 09:13:36 AM
I have seen this around the net and wonder if anyone here has come across this issue.

From an article on PCWorld;

"To save time, some third-party Windows desktop developers used a shorthand to check the version name (not number) of Windows they were installing their app to. Instead of coding apps to check for Windows 95 or Windows 98, developers coded instructions to check for "Windows 9."

How are you people installing it? The 64-bit USA ISO just has errors in VirtualBox when I try to install it.

I had problems too so ended up using VMware.

So far it seems to be the same as Win8 without the hassle of bypassing the Metro screen.

maybe Skwire's Files 2 Folder will help you?

http://skwire.dcmembers.c...m/fp/?page=files-2-folder

That is it! I knew I had seen it here somewhere but could not find it. I did try a search but of course did not use the magic words!

Thanks!
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Looking for Select, Create Folder, Move Content program on: September 30, 2014, 02:05:34 PM
Before I post in Coding Snacks, I thought I would ask here if there is a program that I can;

Select multiple files
Right click to pop up a dialogue box or menu item
Stay in the current directory and create a new folder
Move selected files

So here is the scenario,

I have multiple files in my download directory that I would like to move to a new folder. I would like to select the files, right click, have the option to create a folder that they would be moved to (maybe option to copy) in the same directory. Done!

This would be easier than having two explorer windows open and creating folders in one and moving the contents from the other.

I seem to remember a coding snack that was similar but have not been able to locate it. Thanks!
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: New BitTorrent client needed, suggestions please? on: September 25, 2014, 06:28:41 PM
I switched to qbittorrent from uTorrent and have not looked back. Simple, small footprint, no nonsense.  

Here are some good reviews of some clients on gizmo's freeware site

http://www.techsupportale...ree-bittorrent-client.htm

Their review of qbittorrent

Pros:
Low and stable RAM and CPU with all the necessary features. Fastest performance on torrents. Development still seems to be very active and responsive to users. Clean install, no addons etc. Cross platform client.
Cons:
Support has improved, but could be better. Not that well known and not accepted at many private torrent sites (though the situation is improving).

Chrome browser has a print to PDF function that I use to capture web sites.  Open Office/Libra Office has the function built in. CutePDF writer works great too for everything else.
13  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Simple Podcast Player with 30 second skip feature. on: July 17, 2014, 08:03:34 AM
Either run Trout with administrator rights or run it from a folder that is not UAC protected.  Once you do that, try the resume playback feature again.

Yep that did the trick. Ran as Admin and did not receive any error messages. Paused playback, closed, opened and voila, back to the spot I paused at.

I guess I need to explore some of the features to programs that I already use. Trout was always my go to program for just listening to music stored on my computer. Since the advent of smart phones, I use that feature much less.

Thanks for all your help as always.
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Simple Podcast Player with 30 second skip feature. on: July 17, 2014, 12:41:29 AM
Trout has a Resume playback on startup option which remembers the last position.  Maybe that is enough for your needs?

If I click the stop button, it does not remember where I was. The progress bar clears back to zero. If I hit the pause button and close, it does not remember where I was. Now I am getting an error when closing "Error saving list contents". (Windows 7). I received the error both with and without the resume box being checked.
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Simple Podcast Player with 30 second skip feature. on: July 16, 2014, 11:33:13 PM
Well, now you have me thinking.  Currrently, in Trout, you can set a custom seek jump interval and then use the corresponding skip forward and skip backward buttons.  Is that good enough?

I just downloaded the current version and found the programmable skip feature. Works like a charm!

One other feature that I did not think about but just thought of as I was trying out Trout again, is a bookmark feature to resume where the podcast left off. One of the podcasts is three hours long (hence the fast forward need!) if I hit stop instead of pause, I would need to find the spot that I stopped at.
This of course is more of a question of possibility than a request. I get to fall in love with Trout all over again!

Thanks!

I can do this one.

I am not sure if this would be a simple addition to the Trout player.
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / SOLVED: Simple Podcast Player with 30 second skip feature. on: July 14, 2014, 10:46:35 PM
I know there are a few small simple audio players for windows but what I find lacking is the ability to skip 30 seconds ahead or back. It would be great if the skip time could be defined i.e. 5, 10, 20 seconds ect.

I listen to a lot of audio podcasts on my Android phone. My player of choice allows skipping in defined increments. I record and download podcasts onto my desktop computer and would like to be able to skip past the boring parts and continue to the parts that interest me. A slider control is not very accurate.

Some windows players have this feature but you have to push a combo of keys to get a simple skip. I would like to push a button on the player or simply define a single key for the action. The keyboard is not very important as having the feature part of the onscreen player.

Thanks!

I remembered this topic and then read about this program pplconnect.

It does everything you asked for, and more! I have not tried it yet myself. No real need but looks like an interesting product.

It can be found here: http://pplconnect.mobi/ (yes it is a .mobi but actually displays as a normal web page on a computer)
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Podcast Downloader on: October 03, 2013, 05:44:03 PM
I use an app on my Android phone called Beyond Podcast. I am able to find podcasts and download older podcasts that I have not heard yet. Sometimes I want to download all the podcasts in the series but of course it downloads them one at a time and even on wifi can take hours. If I go to the site of the podcast, sometimes I will have to go to seperate pages for each podcast or only able to download a few per page. The reason I mentioned the Android app is that the way it accesses the podcasts, they are all downloadable in one shot.

Is there a program or can a program be written to work like the app, download all podcasts at once instead of having to hunt them down on the website?

After download, I can transfer them to my phone.

Thanks!

Success!

I found the program I have been looking for. It is called MP3 Printer and can be found here; http://www.bynasoft.com/mp3print.php

It is a bargain for me @ $12.00

21  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: CD jewel case insert file list on: August 19, 2012, 11:45:57 PM
WOW! Love the input!  Grin

Yes I agree that the investment in a HD instead of DVD "could" be better, my luck with HD is flaky at best. I have cashed in on my HD warranties.

Now the type of encoding is also an interesting factor...but my reason for DVD and MP3 is.....all current and most past DVD/BlueRay players will play MP3 format music. So if I archive on something that can be played on something a few years from now it is better than trying to match an eide, sata, or ? (future HD format) down the road. I hope to hang onto the orignal CD's as long as the wife allows due to the storage issue.

Yes it could work in Word but I need to import a text file into a multi column word doc that could span multiple pages formatted to the size of a jewel case insert.
I have not had luck with that. I am open though.

I will see if I can find the CD I have that has the fanfold output from the REAL player and post that for reference.

Thanks again for the advice.  smiley
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: CD jewel case insert file list on: August 18, 2012, 10:02:58 PM
I almost responded to your first post...

You will have a hard time there.

First, there are no "inserts" that you can print on. (Correct me if I am wrong -- I've never seen one.) So you can't just print one out.

You will then end up printing on something that you need to cut out. So, count on that. 400+ times. Yuck.

I'd say just look for some kind of printing template.

This is not the kind of thing that most software developers will want to program because the lack of media for inserts makes it more of a niche market. That makes it unprofitable. So...

Now, I could be wrong entirely. I've just never seen anything like that. Seen lots of CD label software, and even know some of the developers that make it. But not for inserts.

Let's hope that someone here can trump my ignorance there.

Renegade, thanks for the reply and sorry for the confusion.

I am not looking to print on pre-cut / formatted jewel inserts but on plain paper that can be cut / folded into the proper size.
The 400+ number is the amount of CD's but they will be converted to mp3 format and archived onto DVD's. ( hopefully reduced to a manageable amount of Discs and physical space. )

Once upon a time I did have a program that did this but after a few system crashes and new computers, I have been unable to find it or a suitable replacement.

I originally posted this in the main software forum but did not get any responses for known programs that do just this. An excel or word macro can be considered.

I am finally having time to start to put my CD collection into the digital age. ( have close to 400+ albums! Most are from overseas when I traveled.)

I am having a hard time finding a stand alone program to print the track info on a jewel case insert. I searched the forums and found only one program that looked promising but did not meet my needs. My Epson printer has a built in disc printer with software so I do not want to invest in disc label software just to print jewel inserts. Once upon a time, REAL had a program that produced nice fanfold inserts but it was part of the REAL PLAYER software. All I want to do it to list the track info in two or more rows on the insert. Because I am archiving to DVD, there are quite a number of tracks and info to print.

Thanks,
Larry
