It is perhaps beyond my current AHK capabilities to quickly implement your suggestions -- however, I now have more motivation to learn about how these things might be done smiley
I wasn't suggesting that my suggestion could be implemented quickly Wink
777  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CHM2Alias on: March 02, 2010, 05:56:26 AM
It does indeed!

Concerning ideas of making it simpler to use. I'm dreaming something up:
- "Start" CHM2Alias
- It presents me a list of all .chm files in "Program Files"
- The ones which I have already "created/installed" are marked somehow
- I can select a few of them and press the 'Create / Update' button
- Each one also lists the group alias name which I can change right there

So when I install a new application or update one I'll just start CHM2Alias again and select the new app / the app I updated and press the 'Create / Update' button again.

As a quick improvement I would suggest to name the group alias name without the 'chm' at the end Wink

It was the browser cache. Sorry about that. embarassed
779  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CHM2Alias on: March 02, 2010, 04:06:16 AM
Still get the same error when the CHM2Alias.exe is in a path with spaces. Without spaces it works perfectly.

And it is very cool! Thmbsup

A more automatic way of creating, installing, configuring and especially updating such an alias file would obviously be desirable Wink.

Alias file creation worked fine now on my home PC with Windows 7 (with your updated version).

It's not in the combo box though once I copied it into 'C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom' and I can't find where the myaliases.alias file is either (to copy the file there). Maybe a Windows 7 issue. I'm too tired to look for the problem now. I'll check it out tomorrow on my Windows XP PC (in the office) and I'm sure I'll find out where to place it on Windows 7 later.

Have hh.exe in my c:\windows directory. Dropping FindAndRunRobot.chm onto CHM2Alias.exe gave me the following error:

[CHM2Alias.exe]
JavaScript main() returned: Execution of main failed: undefined.

I now have an empty directory called 'radA6319.tmp' in the CHM2Alias folder as well as a debuglog.txt file containing the following:

Mon Mar 1 13:08:17 UTC+0100 2010: e.message: undefined
Mon Mar 1 13:08:17 UTC+0100 2010: argc: 2
Mon Mar 1 13:08:17 UTC+0100 2010: argv: C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.chm,0
Mon Mar 1 13:08:17 UTC+0100 2010: cwd: C:\Documents and Settings\ttt\My Documents\Downloads\CHM2Alias


I also tried Notepad++'s .chm file. Same result.

by the way: any reason to order any of these books on 'The Pragmatic Bookshelf' instead of Amazon? they all seem to be cheaper on Amazon (sometimes as much as 30% or more). Well, unless you have a 40% coupon. Or you want the paper book/ebook bundle.
783  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Get 40% off The Pragmatic Bookshelf on: February 18, 2010, 02:56:07 AM

784  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Suggestion: arrow keys to scroll result list on: February 15, 2010, 10:01:30 AM
Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. I guess you have your reasons to make this the default. Nevertheless, I think the *pure* might confuse other people as well.

So hitting page down will re-issue the search instead of just changing the view? (reusing the results from the search before hitting Page Down)
785  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Suggestion: arrow keys to scroll result list on: February 15, 2010, 09:41:46 AM
It works. Thanks for that!  Thmbsup

I'd keep justice's initial idea on the list though. Scrolling through the results in big icon view mode would still be very cool!

By the way: why is it +sall only shows the *pure* matches (whatever that is)?
786  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FarrWebMetaSearch 1.4.2 on: February 09, 2010, 08:57:40 AM
Is it possible to do this already and if so, is there a way to do it without specifying absolute paths?
It's not currently possible. If not absolute, relative to what would you like to specify it?
787  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FarrWebMetaSearch 1.4.2 on: February 09, 2010, 05:37:00 AM
I'd like to be able to specify local files for searchUrl (e.g. for a local copy of the autohotkey script listing page).

Is it possible to do this already and if so, is there a way to do it without specifying absolute paths?

You mean instead of searching in a file downloaded from the web, you want to search in a local file?
788  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FarrWebMetaSearch 1.4.2 on: February 05, 2010, 07:49:36 AM
I've just done a very quick search config for DevCheatSheets is on this thread.
Cheers! And I have done one that uses the site's search engine:

Formatted for Javascript with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. description=Cheat sheets for developers
  2. searchUrl=http://devcheatsheet.com/search/?q=
  3. resultPattern=<h2><a href="([^"]*)" title="[^"]*">(.*)</h2>\s*Source: <a href="([^"]*)" title="[^"]*">(.*)</a><br>\s*(.*)<br>\s*Tag(?:s)?: <a href="([^"]*)" title="[^"]*">(.*)</a><br>
  4. farrCaption=$2
  5. farrGroup=Source: $4, $5
  6. farrPath=$1

I'll merge this as a subsearch into yours if you don't mind.

    Requested New Functionality to WMS  smiley
    • subSearch sorting: I've added a parameter to the subSearches though it can be named anything. OneLook suffers from not having the ability to sort the subSearches.
    • subSearch hiding: Some of the subSearches in TimeAndDate should only be used from the context menu as typing the search criteria in doesn't make sense (and crashes FARR at the moment)
    • Context Menu:
      • I seem to have hit the limit with the context menu. Is that a WMS restriction or FARR?
      • The context menus don't seem to be being cleared for each subSearch. You can see this in the OneLook search: the submenus for the default search are carried over to all of the subSearches. I think it would be preferable to start each subSearch fresh.
      • Can we have subMenus? I'd like to put all the dictionary type searches into a subMenu (Art, Computer, etc)
    • Two-stage RegEx: Those dictionary type searches could really do with a two-stage RegEx Match where the second RegEx operates on the result of the first. I also wondered if a RegEx Replace was possible (would help cleaning up some pages).
    • Search Navigation: It would be helpful to have an ability to backwards and forwards in the search results. Sometimes you can not get back to where you came from with the search results, and a back button would be helpful. Something like this:
      • wms timeanddate +w: cities displayed
      • type "syd": filter to "Sydney"
      • select forecast context menu: 14 day forecast displayed
      • at this point I would like to go back one step to the cities filtered on "syd" to access the current conditions context menu.
    • subSearch sorting: done
    • subSearch hiding: done
    • context menu item count limitation: fixed
    • context menu items not cleared for subsearches: fixed (but see below)
    • context sub menus: done

    Multi-stage regex and history will have to wait a bit longer I'm afraid Sad. Concerning multi-stage regex: how should we specify input/output from one stage to the next?

    Until now, subsearches would inherit any parameters from the main search if they were not specified. This leads to the problem you describe. I've thought about a way to keep this behaviour but get rid of the problem, but did not find anything that pleased me. I saw that you were not using that 'feature' anyway (except maybe for the isFeed parameter) so I just got rid of it thus solving that problem.[/list]

    Good idea ewemoa! I'll add the site to FarrWebMetaSearch too. smiley

    Leason learned. And for me too-- except I dont know what my lesson is: dont trust open source software?

    Always make backups of your data, and make them on a regular basis?

    Perry, congratulations to your 1000th post! Thmbsup
    793  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FarrWebMetaSearch 1.4.2 on: January 29, 2010, 03:19:43 PM
    Check out the new release: there's subsearch abbreviations, context menu support, custom search help file support, Shift + Enter to launch result in FARR's internal web browser, new and updated searches and more...

    And then there's Perry's OneLook search. What can I say: it's just amazing! Kiss

    Actually, I think wms onelook has become my main use of FARR. cheesy
    794  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: GUIDs... on: January 28, 2010, 02:12:31 PM
    Whew, I'm only glad the consumption of GUIDs is not something you're asked about in the ecological footprint quiz. I guess I would have scored even worse!
    795  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: GUIDs... on: January 28, 2010, 06:17:57 AM
    Indeed I have. I once went so far as to generate me 100 of them, even though I only needed one, just to make sure they haven't all run out once I should need another one. Still have 93 of them left. I could maybe offer them on ebay...

    Now that he owns such a big bowl he thinks he should get much more food though.

    Subscribed for the KDK Limited Beta already cheesy

    Although, I saw no mention whatsoever about Development OS / Programming language / IDE, etc.

    799  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FARR plugin: FarrWebMetaSearch 1.3.0 on: January 19, 2010, 04:20:04 PM
    If we start by thinking what would work for this scenario that then refine so that it's useful for all??

    For this type of search what would be nice is to re-use part of the result for different subSearches.

    So if I had a reverse search on "Play with words" I get a hundred results+ (words). What would be neat is to be able to get that result ($1 from the RegEx) and use that as the search term for a new search. That way if I wasn't sure about the meaning of a word I could select it and use it to do a new search.

    This was why I was wondering about a context menu definition: you could add text for menu and the subSearch to use
    • "Definition of $1" >> [Quick]
    • "Dictionary listings with $1" >> [Dicts]
    • "Phrases with $1" >> [Prase]
    • etc
    Ok, I'll try to do that next.

    Is search history a possibility? I'm wondering about navigating backward from the definition lookup mentioned before. That would make good status bar icons.
    Can you please elaborate?

    subSearch abbreviations is a good idea, you'll notice I used [Dicts], but +Di would be even better  smiley
    I've implemented abbreviations. They will be specified like so: [Dicts|Di]

    Mouser, don't forget to list the new plugins on your FARR addons page. I would assume that this is still the best place for new FARR users to discover what plugins are available.
