I'll upload the next release somewhere else.
You could attach it to the original release-post, so it's stored somewhere in the forum-space, and always available as long as the forum is thumbs up

I've done this now. Sorry to everyone who had trouble downloading it from mega.

Some more suggestions:
(taken from an old plugin for Notepad++,but that plugin doesn't works anymore...)

Some functions ask multiple optional parameters. Just see what you can do with it.

All line functions

  • ReverseLines(): Reverses the order of all the lines.
  • Scramble(): rearranges the lines in random order.
  • SetBlanks(int minblank, int maxblank, int threshhold): Changes the number of blank lines between lines.
  • SortCase(): Like sort, but case-sensitive.
  • Wrap(int columncount, int ignorewords): Adds hard returns to force columns to a certain width.

Per-Line Functions

  • AddLineNumbers(string separator, string padchar, int length): Puts the line number on the front of each line, with an optional separator.
  • AddLineNumbersOffset(string separator, string padchar, int length, int offset): Puts the line number on the front of each line, with an optional separator.  Offset is the number of the first line.
  • BeginLine(string text): Appends text to the beginning of every line.
  • CutLeft(int count): Removes count characters from the beginning of each line.
  • CutRight(int count): Removes count characters from the end of each line.
  • DeleteToTag(string tag): For each line, deletes all characters before first instance of tag
  • EndLine(string text): Appends text to the end of every line.
  • PadLeft(string padchar, int length): Pads the beginning of each line with padchar to extend the length where necessary
  • PadRight(string padchar, int length): Pads the end of each line with padchar to extend the length where necessary
  • ShortenLeft(int length): Removes characters from the beginning of each line if the line is too long
  • ShortenRight(int length): Removes characters from the end of each line if the line is too long
  • SizeLeft(string padchar, int length): Pads or cuts the beginning of each line to make it the exact length
  • SizeRight(string padchar, int length): Pads or cuts the end of each line to make it the exact length
  • Trim(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the beginning and end of every line.
  • TrimLeft(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the beginning of every line.
  • TrimRight(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the end of every line.

Deleting Lines

  • DeleteDupes(): Deletes any line that is identical to a previous line.

Search and Replace

  • Replace(string oldtext, string newtext): Replaces all instances of oldtext with newtext.

Thanks DeVamp. That's quite a list! Have any priorities?

Thanks K!

I've added badges for everyone we have on record as having released a NANY2014 app.

You can see the list here:  http://www.donationcoder....tion=badges;show=nany2014

If you released a NANY2014 app and we left you off the list, speak up and let us know!

I will be emailing NANY2014 participants shortly so that I can send you out your mug gift certificates.  If you don't get an email by sunday, let me know!

(mouser@donationcoder.com)

Thanks mouser. Just noticed I'm missing the 2013 badge though.

I won't have time to work on this any more this year so I'm calling it released.

Seems like .NET 4.0 is the latest version supported by Windows XP SP 3 (download).

TaoPhoenix, if you want you can re-download using the link in the first post and try on your XP machine (if you have SP 3 and .NET 4.0 installed).

Yeah Phit, that looks much better. I haven't actually tested it yet, but it opens and looks "sensible" if you know what I mean aka no horrible bugs etc. (Heh I provide an interesting test case because my comp's OS has gone slightly downhill, and a few "obvious" things don't work on it.)

Thanks for checking!  Thmbsup

So I'll pick a day later when I am in my "testing mood" and poke at it. Quick memo for now: under "Web" and then "source" without anything selected, I get:

"Error: The path is not of a legal form."

So I don't know what that means. If you're trying to tell the user that he hasn't entered any data, maybe you can do a quick check and just advise that "the field is blank ... you need to enter a web page address" or something.

It expects a URL in the input field. To be honest, I wanted to hold back with help/manual/instructions until someone actually showed some interest. On the other hand, I'm sure I won't know what it expects a month from now so some hints/minimal instructions definitely won't hurt even if I end up being the only one using the application.


But in other news, for "my education", do just say what version of .Net you used that other time - 5.x? So does Windows 7 support that and up etc?
The newest version seems to be .NET 4.5

Also, I'm stunned that a 36k application can do all that stuff and still have a GUI on top! How is that even possible!? So that puts a perspective on "today's Bloatware"! (3-18 megs for simple programs, etc. If you did all that in 36k, what are those other programs wasting 18 megs on?!)
That's because all the bloat is in the .NET runtime. The download I linked above is 48MB!  cheesy

Sorry TaoPhoenix for just ignoring your post. The file sizes you see are actually correct. The zip is 18k the exe is 36k.

Unfortunately, I have no access to a Win XP machine any more. Maybe the .NET version I've built this with is not available for Win XP. I might try to build it against an older .NET version. I'm not using anything fancy in this little tool.

hamradio, I'll look into your suggestion as well.

This suggestion would be useful for programmers, but heres it goes...

Have a programmers section perhaps and a thing that could be in it is explained below...

For CSharp...
Take a list and of variables someone copies over for example...

Formatted for C# with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. private int attribute_left = -1;
  2. private int attribute_top = -1;
  3. private int attribute_width = -1;
  4. private int attribute_height = -1;

and convert it with the option of generating both setters or one or the other into like...

Formatted for C# with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. public int Attribute_left
  2. {
  3.    get { return this.attribute_left; }
  4.    set { this.attribute_left = value; }
  5. }
  6.  
  7. public int Attribute_top
  8. {
  9.    get { return this.attribute_top; }
  10.    set { this.attribute_top = value; }
  11. }
  12.  
  13. public int Attribute_width
  14. {
  15.    get { return this.attribute_width; }
  16.    set { this.attribute_width = value; }
  17. }
  18.  
  19. public int Attribute_height
  20. {
  21.    get { return this.attribute_height; }
  22.    set { this.attribute_height = value; }
  23. }


Good idea hamradio!

Just downloaded it and it seems to be working fine. What Windows version have you tried to run it on?

ps. Progress Bars of Life falls into the group of programs I have written that may actually have 0 users.  Which is sort of a shame since it seems like there should be at least a few people that would find it useful..

If anyone reads this who actually uses the program (I don't mean someone who tries it and then uninstalls but someone who actually uses it for more than a couple of days), I'd love to hear about it!

I think this one would be especially useful to have as an Android widget Wink

119  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR Plugin Request: RSS Reader on: November 07, 2013, 10:07:21 AM
The reason why most of the searches that come with FarrWebMetaSearch don't work is because FarrWebMetaSearch has a fundamental flaw: it gathers results by applying regular expressions on a web page's html. Unfortunately, a web page's html doesn't seem to be very stable (over time) Sad In other words, when a web site provider changes their html (for whatever reason), these regexes become invalid or unusable and keeping them up-to-date would be quite a task I'm afraid.

That being said, FarrWebMetaSearch could be quite suitable for showing RSS feeds, because the RSS format is well-defined and never changes. Currently, FarrWebMetaSearch requires one file per site for definition. So to fulfill the OP's request, it would have to be changed / extended in such a way that it uses one definition file (defined for the RSS format) for many sites, as suggested by the OP. And then: reading is one thing, but you probably also want the functionality to mark items as read, to star items, to share items, etc. etc.

Do you use any of the mobile apps (iOS and/or Android) with Wuala? Can they now also encryp and upload data to the cloud (last time I looked they could only download, but not upload data).

Edit: Ah, just saw that I already posted that a few posts up Grin (but that was over a year ago)
121  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Book: Masterminds of Programming on: September 16, 2013, 04:51:19 AM
I can remember the stark contrast between Bjarne Stroustrup (C++) and Brad Cox and Tom Love (Objective-C): the former humble, self-critical, explaining the other two bragging, jealous, unsympathetic.

Thomas E. Kurtz (BASIC) I also read with much interest. BASIC was my first programming language (which I learned from a BASIC command reference, from A to Z, on an MSX and MSX-II computer). What I can remember about it is that the interview really showed how old he is (already was at the time of the interview). He understood none of the questions about more recent development in computer programming.

About the Charles H. Moore (FORTH) interview I remember how weird the guy must be.

But I also found the other interviews entertaining, instructive and worthwhile.

Another recommendation for https://bazqux.com/. After trying feedly I've switched to Bazqux and been really happy with it. I've had to switch from Reeder to Mr. Reader on the iPad, which is ok too. Still looking for a good Android client though.
How did you export your feeds from feedly to bazqux?  I couldn't find that info on feedly.  I'd like to give bazqux a try, but I'd rather export my current feedly feeds rather than try to use the old Google Reader xml file.

I think I didn't have to. IIRC I made the switch shortly before google reader was closed so bazqux could actually import my feeds directly from google. I think feedly still used google reader as a backend when I was using it, so everything was actually nicely in sync.
