Use sed, the Stream EDitor, known from Linux, but also available for Windows. And here is a SO answer with details

The Windows download can be found here:

Let me guess: You're on Windows 10?

LaunchBar Commander / Re: LBC - Loop Send Keys
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:20 PM »
I would like to loop the {DOWN} x 10
You could run my tool WinSendKeys, that is created in, and supports, the AutoIt3 syntax, like {DOWN 10} to repeat the {DOWN} keystroke 10 times (might need surrounding quotes when used on a command-line). It also has options to direct the keystrokes to a specific window or application, read keystrokes from a (script)file, execute mouse clicks and moves, and a whole plethora of related stuff.
Haven't tried myself to start it from LBC, as I'm not an LBC user, but it is designed for tasks like that.

Ejem. What do you think about this ?


Real or imaginary ?

It's real, but not suitable as main storage.
And how long you'll have a device that will support micro-USB? My current phone has (and most newer phones will have) USB-C connector...

Post New Requests Here / Re: NetTraffic xml export to Excel
« on: February 09, 2019, 05:02 AM »
Well, I tried a couple of possibilities, and the closes guess I have is that 'ts' is related to 1/1/0000, in seconds, but with a factor 100 off. Guess that's close enough for determining the data.
ul and dl are quite self explanatory (million bytes).

Best advice would probably be to contact the developer and ask for documentation.

Excel can open an xml file just fine as a worksheet:
  • Start Excel (2007 or later I'd advise)
  • Use File-Open to fetch the xml file
  • Choose either the 1st 'As an XML table' or 2nd 'As a readonly workbook' option when prompted
    • The 1st option will induce a message about a missing schema, just continue with OK
    • The 2nd option will include some of the metadata as column headers, it can be removed if desired
  • Process & massage the data as required/desired

as 7z or zip package
Attaching files to posts, or inserting screenshots (png's) into the message, has never been an issue here, using Palemoon, Firefox or Chrome browsers.

And use the <Win>-(cursor-keys) hotkeys to move and resize the current window...

Living Room / Re: DC on Discord :O
« on: February 05, 2019, 12:26 PM »
because nobody ever talks on the DC IRC
I'd want to write on IRC, but I can't, as by default the 'voice' flag is off, so I can't even ask there to turn it on... :-[

Thanks Curt, but my aim was to educate the OP in formulating a more complete question, but maybe that's to much to ask for drive-by posters :-[

A few developer tools come to mind:
- Compare It! by Grigsoft (shareware, my personal favorite)
- Beyond Compare by Scooter Software (shareware)
- WinMerge (OSS)

They may need some configuration/settings to act as described.

And also the changelog in the help/about screen is updated upto 1.7.6, not 1.7.7...

Can you please provide a pointer (or link) to the software you are referring to?

base10 to base64 or reverse
I've never seen a practical use of that, AFAIR :huh:

Base64 encoding of content is often used to transfer binary data in text-form, avoiding unexpected mangling by intermediate processing. And it was required for e-mail transport, as (older) Russian servers passing through the mail around their part of the i-net were only 7 bits, so if content contained 8 bit data it would come across mangled...

hope you don't mind waiting
That's no problem, I prefer my tools to work perfectly, so if all it takes is a little (more) time, that's fine with me :Thmbsup:

Well, I updated to 1.2 and tried the Base64 conversion, but when using the keyboard to select the option, either with or without shift, it gives an error "Error! Only alphanumeric Symbols will be accepted!", but that's a bit weird, as it should accept any string of text instead of numerical data (dec ?) to convert to Base64, and a valid sequence of base64 text to convert back to a string.
When selecting the option using the mouse I get an error:
"Missing Parameter!

Use: baseConvert("Value", "From", "To")

baseConvert("55", "dec", "hex")
(Stripped some unneeded text away)

I think you have the Base64 conversion not working in the expected way Base64w
And selecting options using the keyboard seems to behave a bit strange too

Android Apps / Re: android app keyboard
« on: January 18, 2019, 06:42 AM »
Depends on what you want to type, for my tablet I use Hackers Keyboard by Esc (Play store link), that has cursor keys to facilitate (somewhat) easier text selection using shift/control + cursor keys.

I didn't find the Base64 conversion yet, is that still in planning too?

But in this case I am just trying to get rid of the windows
AFAIK, that's not possible/happening. When closing a 'Window', the app is actually terminated, on Android.

On older Android versions I used to use Advanced Task Killer (by Rechild, couldn't find it in the Play Store anymore) to kill off unused programs, but I started it manually only, as I didn't want it to kill apps 'under my fingers'. I think I stopped using that around Android 5 or 6, but it should still work on those versions. AFAICS, killing an app is the only way to close it's (remaining) views.

I'm glad you appreciate it. :Thmbsup:
It can be rather complex to configure, though, that's why I included the examples ;)

TMK that close-all feature first appeared on Samsung devices, and later also on other brands (nothing to compare with though), but only recently was added to stock Android.
Sometimes it requires to 'shift the list aside' to reveal the Close all feature, have you tried that?

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: NANY 2019 - StringSimilarity - Release
« on: January 07, 2019, 02:33 PM »
Start at pos 1 of the string take 3 characters and hold them, shift 1 position and do the same, until the end.
Do the same for the second string.
See how many trig's are the same among the strings and calculate the percentage to the total number of trig's of string 1.
I'm not quite sure, nor an expert on the subject, but isn't this the 'F23 Jaccard index' calculation from StringSimilarity? You'd have to multiply by 100 to get a percentage, if you need that, I kept all results except Damerau-Levenshtein (number of edits) in the 0..1 range. The documentation for the F23 library and an excerpt of its algorithms can be found here

OK, this browser is untested.  :huh:
That should probably read "this browser is unsupported", with the side note "use a modern and up to date browser", IMHO

Maybe I have to remove the package completely in WP?
That's how I release updates on my dcmembers page, delete and add ;)

<Esc> key seems to work as Cancel in the 'Find and Replace*' popup...

What's the trick with shift? Should I hold that down to get the secondary result? That's not quite obvious, aka I've never seen that UX before :-[ (And I didn't see that in the description..., but after re-reading I just found that)
'Reverting' the action based on current selected content is what I'd expected to happen :tellme:

I have a feature request:
  • In the Transform menu, could 'Base64 Encode' and 'Base64 Decode' be added? (Should probably be separate entries, as for some purposes a double encoding is used...)

And a few bug-reports:
  • Convert / 'URI encode | decode' : is duplicated on the Transform menu
  • Transform / 'URI encode | decode' : on the same selection does only URI encode, not a decode when a valid % encoding is in the selection
  • Convert / 'Dec to Hex | Hex to Dec' : does only Dec to Hex (20 -> 14 -> E -> <error>), maybe a prefix (#/$/0x) should be added on the Hex result?
  • Hm, it seems all those dual-conversions only do the 'left side' of the conversion, all work in progress, I presume?

And some other findings:
  • 'Sort and Number' / 'Renumber Lines*' and 'Increment Tokens*' : popup view can't be closed/cancelled using <Esc> key
  • Popup views sometimes show (almost) off-screen when the mouse is close to the screen-edge/Windows taskbar (The <Win-K> menu is shown completely on-screen as it should)
  • The SysTray menu has 2 'Exit' entries

This is what I tested so far.

Thanks for a great utility :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
