1 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: What language is FARR regex? i.e how do I learn to use regex applicable to FARR on: July 13, 2015, 11:12:07 PM
You can find more technical information about the FARR Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library (regex or filter patterns) at
There you'll find several links to documentation. For a good introduction on how to use try

2 Software / Find And Run Robot / some aliases I like to share on: July 04, 2015, 04:26:39 AM
some aliasses I use a lot

for listing the farr commands similar to gohelp

for searching the  lauch history
/l optional-search-string

for seaching alias names
/a optional-search-string

for searching plugins
/p optional-search-string

for searching search history
/s optional-search-string

for opening options, no [Enter] required

for hibernation
zzzz  (anywhere in the farr searchfield)

Below you find my alias export for these commands.
To import you can select (the lines you like) copy them to the clipboard (ctrl+c), open FARR (ctrl-space or Break), type gooptions to edit options, go to Lists >>Aliases/Keywords/Groups right click in the list, select Import: Paste Preformatted Alias Groups

Operamail service ended, fastmail uses different interface.

This plugin does not work anymore, sorry

4 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Folder Modifier Bug? on: July 19, 2014, 03:45:28 AM
to limit the search universe you can also try this alternative (which I use)

In Options>>Search Folders

  Disable/uncheck folders you never want to include in the search universe.
  Assign short and easy to remember (different) modifier keywords to all active (checked) folders. (e.g. my)
  To include certain folder for every search add '*' to the modifier keywords (always in the search universe)

In Options>>Pattern Scoring

  Assign modifier keywords to all (active) pattern scoring (e.g. mp3)

Searching within a limited search universe

  When you search using FARR, FARR will initially only find results in launch history (historyl) and from the alias/keyword/groups, so it does not look into any folders.
  You must specify a keyword modifier (e.g. +my and/or +mp3) to specify a which part of your search universe FARR must investigate . Cool

Hint: modifier keywords do not have to be unique, and you can specify multiple modifier keywords.

  So you can combine folders/patterns by adding a common modifier keyword
  e.g. one folder: my hobby and another folder:  download hobby.

I replaced the 2014-01-15 epcheck.exe version by the 2014-02-04 version..
then I added a new series: Burn notice and refreshed Castle (2009)
both gave the same unzip error, does that help?

I renamed data folder and ran the program again, it works now okay

thanks for the update/release! Thmbsup

I found a small bug when adding a series and refreshing one series. Both actions result in the following unzip error:

   There was a problem unzipping the series data. You might have to run epCheck as administrator

As a result of the error the folder for that series is empty. I used epCheck version of 15th Jan to restore the folder contents  Wink

Thanks for this great program! I have one question(found a little bug in the weekly overview only), when I double click an episode title, the program start the browser (in my case opera)

e.g. castle (2009) s06e13 it jumps to

the banner is for castle (2009), but the description is for buffy the vampire slayer s01e(N-1) so in this case s01e12
for every episode s(M)e(N) always gives the correct banner with the description for buffy the vampire slayer s01e(N-1)

when selecting next episode and then previous episode the proper description is given.
it looks like the id is different....
9 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: msconfig ??? on: January 12, 2014, 12:44:03 AM
on my PC (XP sp3) the full path is   c:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\msconfig.exe

I don't have a clean install of farr, maybe you need
to add an entry to the Search Folders for
c:\windows or c:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\
the latter being faster  Wink

11 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: [Solved] Multiple parameters to URL? on: November 05, 2013, 12:46:34 AM
if you define alias trigger (if you leave out the colon you should also leave it out of the regex)

  car make model:year

and define regex as car at the beginning of the line followed by two words separated by a single space followed by a  colon and a third word

  ^car (.*) (.*):(.*)

results where $$1 substitues the first word matching (.*)$$1&model=$$2&year=$$3

or alternatively from your original request:$$1+$$2%3a$$3

when you type
  car ford fusion:2009

it turns into

or when you use the alternative

(BTW does not work with these paramaters?)

12 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Exporting FARR result list using snagit TXT mode on: September 21, 2013, 09:42:31 AM

That would be much appreciated. Kiss

13 Software / Find And Run Robot / Exporting FARR result list using snagit TXT mode on: September 21, 2013, 09:23:43 AM
Currently there is no option to export the results from the FARR window. I would have loved that option.
I tried to retrieve the data using ahk and nirsoft sysexporter, but could not get the info from the TNextgrid.

Snagit in txt capture mode helped to accomplish this task.
This works with very old versions of Snagit too [it is not freeware]

You first want to limit the number of columns and it is probably best to use small icons, each file on a separate line:

Start FARR options
  Program Options > Settings > Display Options
  Report Columns
    switch on/off extra columns
  Result Display style
    (.) small icon Report
Save FARR options.

Start a FARR search

Start Snagit config.
  Put Snagit in TXT capture mode
  Select the output format (file, clipboard,..)
Start selecting

Choose the FARR result window.
All visible lines from the file list will be copied.

Now you can use the file list in other programs to sort, journaling or create batch files
e.g. for backing up these files, etc...

Don't forget to restore your FARR display options and Snagit settings afterwards.
14 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: How to keep webpages inside of farr? on: May 17, 2013, 03:32:02 PM
you could try this fsubscript plugin fie



first install farr fsubscript (see elsewhere in this forum)

create folder fie under plugins e.g.
c:\program files\farr\plugins\fie

in fie you'll find fsubscript.js and fie.ico, save these in the new folder

after unzipping and copying the files

restart farr plugins:
click on OK button




fie = farr internet explorer
15 Software / Web Link Captor / Re: Added delay to to make the script more human on: March 03, 2013, 09:33:32 AM
That would require to reshuffle code, and will take more time to program and a lot more testing to find out what the heuristics are within the search engines. The engines probably all differ in that respect to identify robots and alike.
Current solution suffices for me, sorry...embarassed
16 Software / Web Link Captor / Added delay to to make the script more human on: March 03, 2013, 08:43:40 AM
My list contains 600 items, ms will block after about 30 results.

I added a time.sleep(60) command in (and had to import time) to fool the (b i n g) search engine.

Each input line takes 60 seconds, it makes the script more human.....

So I don't have to enter lost of  subselections (600=20x30 input items)  cheesy

17 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feedback on: November 16, 2012, 01:30:28 PM
it is possible to type

  cpanel network connections

or something shorter like

  cpanel nwc

IMHO the latter looks more compact than  'network connections',
it works because nwc matches network connections

great! cheesy Thanks for your perseverance.

I'll update the zip file (fscript.dll) of the first post and put the fsubscript version also there.

I've updated the file in the first post
20 Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: farr gmail google mail plugin on: October 02, 2012, 01:57:57 PM
fscript2 is something different. this plugin requires fsubscript.
21 Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: farr gmail google mail plugin on: September 30, 2012, 01:59:03 PM
somehow the same problem occurs now on my computer with the latest farr.

I prepared (earlier) some alternative files which use fsubscript see posts on Farr forum.
you need to install fsubscript in the plugin folder first, it comes with several aliasses which you can enable/disable using fssc command
clear the old gmail folder and copy the following files from the zipfile  [attach=#] to the gmail folder
22 Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: farr gmail google mail plugin on: September 30, 2012, 09:20:43 AM
1) there are no advanced options
2) that should not happen, maybe because of the override string (conflict with yahoomail)
     the override string yhm should not be there, please clear that field
3) the webbrowser will ask for your details (in the farr window)
23 Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / [request] rearrange option for find and replace (in modify format) on: September 30, 2012, 08:10:25 AM
[request] can you add an option to rearrange the order of the Find and Replace patterns?

Changing / moving the order of the entries in Find and Replace are not registered.

I was trying a very simple html to wiki format converter

e.g. remove htmltags
in first Find and Replace
select en cut pattern, disable entry

paste this pattern
in 4th Find and Replace

fill pattern in first/top Find and Replace

  • *

  • b]Original[/b] find and replace pattern in 1st Find and Replace is still executed when enabled?
    when I enable 1st entry it still removes html tags: "<[^>]*>"

    Moved pattern on 4h entry is ignored when enabled.
    It does not replace the html list items
  • into *

  • 24 Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Image Pasting Issue on: September 30, 2012, 07:41:40 AM
    by unchecking PNG image optimization the image stays the same size.

    you can find this option here:
    View>Options>Image Capture> [ ] Save as PNG not BMP (same quality, much less disk space)

    25 Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: farr gmail google mail plugin on: September 30, 2012, 05:42:06 AM
    normally you use farr for finding programs and files
    if you have a google mail account (you can create one for free)
    with this plugin you can access your inbox without having to open your browser.

    just copy the files to the plugin folders as described.
    then you can enter the command gmail

    you'll see your (web)gmail inbox (sometimes you see the gmail log in webpage first)
    now you can read, search, create, and delete messages.

    do you need more info
