Hello again,
...

I changed the script to work with comma as separator - the other versions used ";". If it does not work add "PAUSE" (without the quotes) at the end of the batch file (it prevents the command window from being closed) and post the contents and maybe a demo file which should be transformed.

bye smiley
hi crono
that's working now Thmbsup
thanks!

the original script didnt work for me with ";" as seperator either (just tried today) so happy to get this one
many thanks again, tom

You will soon - on March 4 - be able to purchase Surfulator for $39.50 at Bits. 

Just a bump to the thread as the discount is now available for the next 22 or so hours...

http://www.bitsdujour.com/software/surfulater/
that's a good price

I was thinking about the thread title - to be fair to Surfulater it went from 59 to 79 dollars which is a 33% price hike rise, as opposed to the 166% mentioned - which is also correct, but over a period of years, and starting from a reduced price as Neville has said.
Would you consider changing or removing that number from the thread title Carol?
I guess it's a piece of software I like a lot which is why I ask as well smiley

in which folder have you installed your sed.exe? Lets assume it is in "C:\Program Files\Gnu\Sed\", than you should change the bat-file like this to ensure your sed.exe is found (this is what I meant by "change the path"):
[copy or print]
@echo off
set infile=%1%
"C:\Program Files\Gnu\Sed\sed.exe" -e "s/;/\[\/td\]\[td\]/g" "%infile%" > temp1.txt
"C:\Program Files\Gnu\Sed\sed.exe" -e "s/$/\[\/td\]\[\/tr]/g" temp1.txt > temp2.txt
"C:\Program Files\Gnu\Sed\sed.exe" -e "s/^/\[tr\]\[td\]/g" temp2.txt > temp1.txt
echo [table] > table.txt
type temp1.txt >> table.txt
echo [/table] >>  table.txt
del temp1.txt
del temp2.txt

It finds SED all right now (online armor requested permission to start it) but: a command window opens, closes and nothing else happens ...
the batch file is correct, I've checked it again and again
I copied sed.exe path into file in quotes as you show - it was in C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\sed.exe (just in case)

command window said it couldnt find file path - broke it up in two parts actually, so I moved both files/folders up the tree a bit but now the command window shows completely blank
Is it important where the files are, and where in relation to each other ?
5279  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for simple backup software on: March 03, 2009, 03:28:32 PM
Ha! I will do some ad here but couldn't resist in sharing this backup software called Backup Dwarf  smiley definitely doesn't all the fancy stuff you listed, but is actually working fo me.
I dont think it'll go far with this pricing structure ($20 - $99)
Quote
Standard Edition - allows for 3 backup schedules with 1 folder selection in each backup
Advanced Edition - allows for 5 backup schedules with maximum 5 folder selections in each backup
Professional Edition - allows for 10 backup schedules with maximum 15 folder selections in each backup
$99/ouch - for a programme that has artificial limitations - are you crazy or what???

5281  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: First looks at OpenOffice 3.1 on: March 03, 2009, 04:30:14 AM
In the interest of simplicity, use the portable version of OOo for this as there's some DLL hell that needs to be sorted out which Haller has already done (stupid fsking visual c++ 9).
1. Take the 'App\openoffice' folder from the portable installation and place it where you want your OO installation to be. Rename it if you like.
2. Go into the 'program' folder inside the 'openoffice' folder and delete 'setup.ini'.
3. Open 'bootstrap.ini' and change the line 'UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/OpenOffice.org/3' to 'UserInstallation=${OOO_BASE_DIR}/../Settings'.
4. Done smiley Your settings will now live in 'openoffice\Settings'.

I tried this with the portable apps version
it does start very quickly (amazingly quickly for OO)
Only used it very briefly the other night
the first couple of uses it wouldnt close properly and I had to kill the process but it seems to be okay now

what programmes did you try?

did you do a search here smiley ... from "Drawing with 2 mice"
Came across this software, free for educational/personal use, which allows multiple mice use, which looks interesting for class room use.
It doesn't allow the multiple mice to be actually in use at the same time ... whoever left clicked last has control.
I tried a 2 handed paint shop pro drawing session... it worked ...maybe an "ambidexter" might find it useful.

Thing is if you're involved with the organisation isn't it bad practice to edit your own articles?

I think they dont actually mind but they are a bit obsessive about giving third party references as sources of your info (I guess it's the only way they can "believe" info - but it is a bit of a messy situation at same time).
IIRC the article abut SQLNotes got removed because of a lack there.

I'm sure Donationcoder and events like NANY here are well linked to from other sites
5284  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Converting Spreadsheet to Table in forum on: March 01, 2009, 11:10:55 AM
hi Crono smiley

I'm trying to update that disc catalogue list, I've changed computers so I've freshly installed sed
I saved your code (below) as  Convert.bat
I'm attempting - unsuccessfully so far - to convert a csv file via drag-drop (I removed spaces from csv file name - that was initially a problem last time)
Separater is comma

Sounds like your SED is not found. To make sure, open a command prompt ([Windows]+[R] -> cmd). Type "sed" - if you got something like "command not found"

you have 2 options:

1) Change the path in your Batchfile to "C:/Program Files/YOUR_PATH_TO_SED/sed.exe"
or
2) Add SED to your path, so it is available everywhere. How to: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm

after this, it should work correctly.

I've tried option two above without success (I still get "'sed' is not recognised" when I try via command line)
In Option #1 you say "Change the path.."
eh ... what path (please remember I'm no coder nor even a power(ful) user for that matter Wink )
[copy or print]
@echo off
set infile=%1%
sed -e "s/;/\[\/td\]\[td\]/g" "%infile%" > temp1.txt
sed -e "s/$/\[\/td\]\[\/tr]/g" temp1.txt > temp2.txt
sed -e "s/^/\[tr\]\[td\]/g" temp2.txt > temp1.txt
echo [table] > table.txt
type temp1.txt >> table.txt
echo [/table] >>  table.txt
del temp1.txt
del temp2.txt

I've restarted and double checked/tried everything again but no luck

The only thing that does happen is if I right click Convert.bat and click open, it then creates a table.txt file with just
[table][/table]
as content

EDIT/ I tried replacing %1% in the batch file with the sed.exe path but that didnt work either
FORGOT TO SAY:
Windows XP SP2 up-to-date

EDIT2/ the sed file I downloaded was sed-4.1.5-setup.exe (the "Complete package, except sources") from
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/sed.htm

Heard about GridMove a couple of days ago, and downloaded it yesterday.   I've been playing with it since then, and have to say that it is an incredibly useful little utility.  Spent most of the night learning how to make grids so I could get one that works exactly the way I wanted.   Here is what I came up with, in case anyone else is interested...

[EDIT] I see the post was removed?? LOL - I cant type at the bottom cause of the شكرا[/EDIT]

شكرا

from http://en.wiktionary.org/...588;كرا
Etymology:
Adverbial accusative of شكر (šukr), thankfulness, from the primitive root شكر (šákara), to thank, to be grateful. Compare Hebrew שכר.

now I wonder how you pronounce it smiley (like "šukr" probably, however that goes)
PS it's bizarre if you start typing in arabic (presumably cause it reads right to left) - keys start working in totally unexpected ways - try backspace, del, or return on this:
شكرا

if you open up the CHS window, then click the "Modify Format/Case" button at top of the clip panel, that will bring you to the formatting dialog.  Then choose the UPPERCASE text formatting and nothing else, then save the preset with a useful name (From preset menu).  After that the new preset formatting operation will appear on your quick pop up menu under "Formatting Presets".

works a treat - would be logical to have this under options as well, thanks!

5296  Special User Sections / DC Website Help and Extras / Re: Fundraiser discussion.. again.. need help with ideas on: February 24, 2009, 03:31:28 PM
How about Fundraiser USB drivers?

Not a bad idea - but should definitely be done as prizes! As stated above, I think that whatever ideas we come up with/agree to should have a truly minimal impact on DC's accounts!

on the other hand it might be a good idea to have a "product line" that you could offer for sale year round
e.g.

tshirts ? (I know you have those expensive hoodies as prizes but you could produce a more basic line for the plebs) cause you could sell it year round it's not particularly "fundraiser-drive" material but worth thinking about, especially with such a good designer/illustrator as nudone on board!  (do you have a link again to those hoodies?)

Posters too ? (I'd like one Wink)
