I've uploaded an improved version 0.9.1.0, fixing mostly issues with multi-line input text and some display-anomalies when used on a Large-Font setting with Windows (default 125% for laptops with Full-HD displays)

    Description
    This application is written after a request from steeladept in the 'Ideas wanted' thread for NANY 2015.
    The request was to have a simple tester for sed expressions on a piece of text supplied to it.

    Features
    Show the result of a sed expression on a piece of text
    Show the explanation of a sed expression
    Optional SED script panel
    Auto-updates the result, unless the Autocheck option is turned off
    Saves options on exit
    Store/remove sed expressions

    Planned Features
    • Compatibility with MONO so it can be run on Linux (GUI) (Since v1.0.1.0)
    • Multi-expression mode (Available since v1.0.0.0)
    • Color the differences between input text and result text
    • Expression Explanation panel (Available since v1.0.0.0)


    Screenshots
    SED expression mode:
    [attachthumb=1]

    SED script mode:
    [attachthumb=2]

    SED script mode (Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon):
    [attachthumb=3]

    Usage
    Installation
    Unzip the downloaded zip-file in a directory.
    The zip-file contains both SedTester.exe and a Windows-compiled version of GNU sed.exe that is spawned by SedTester for getting the result. It needs to be in the current directory or in the Windows path.
    On Linux sed.exe can be removed or not extracted, as it won't be usable/used anyway.

    Using the Application
    Start SedTester.exe (On Linux: run using MONO)
    Type or paste some input text
    Type a sed expression (or select from the combobox if some are added already)
    or Switch to SED script mode using the checkbox and write or paste a script to be executed (most examples from the sed online manual are tested)
    Wait a second and it is auto-checked into the result text (when Autocheck is enabled)

    Uninstallation
    Remove the 2 .exe files, and optionally the auto-created settings.xml, from the directory

    Known Issues
    On Linux/MONO (tested using the Cinnamon desktop) 2 CheckBoxes don't adhere to the RightToLeft setting...
    On Linux/MONO the Application- and Window-icon don't show (MONO known issue)

    There's also Windows Powershell, good for anything Win7 or later, (since it's already installed):
    To access files protected by UAC, it still requires the end-user to run PowerShell 'As Administrator', and that is what the OP is trying to avoid, IMHO...
    80  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: need a quick fix for something easy. Script to change a single word in text file on: December 07, 2014, 06:31:19 AM
    I'm not so sure this actually is going to work on all computers. I must assume that most have UAC in the default setting, so it won't allow 'just any application' to write in system-reserved directories.
    Is UAC turned off, or are you testing on Windows XP (but that's unlikely when you mention "C:\ProgramData") ?
    81  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Quick method to do simple task -must be a one click fix for those who need it :) on: December 06, 2014, 05:06:21 PM
    I've PM-ed you an Inno Setup script that, after some minor customization, can be compiled into a .exe file for sending to your customers/users.
    82  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Quick method to do simple task -must be a one click fix for those who need it :) on: December 06, 2014, 04:17:06 PM
    The trouble with doing this with AHK is you have to persuade your user(s) to run the exe As Administrator, and that's automatic for an (Inno Setup and other brands) installer, because of the manifest included in the exe smiley
    83  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Quick method to do simple task -must be a one click fix for those who need it :) on: December 06, 2014, 02:57:44 PM
    You could create a small Inno Setup installer with just a single [ini] entry to fix that. The default settings are to run as Administrator (after confirmation of the 'unknown publisher' as you probably don't have a code-signing certificate, and a UAC question), and just a few Next clicks further (after disabling almost all screens, 1 or 2) it should be fixed.
    I can help you out with the script if you want.

    Hm, I'd be able to start something relatively small like this sed tester, just to be able to join this NANY tellme
    I'd start with a live preview feature, but don't hold your breath, it'll take me a couple of days to publish it here, only small time-slots available huh

    I've been using VMWare Workstation, the 'big brother' of Player, professionally for several years. Every update has been painless and an incremental improvement over the previous version.
    87  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: Ideas Wanted! on: December 01, 2014, 12:51:15 PM
    Hm, I usually go to www.regex101.com to devise a proper regex find/replace, then head over to one of our HP-UX machines and use trial&error to fix-up the not supported regex signs like \d -> [:digit:] and similar sillyness. After that I've found a sed sequence that works on all our *nix platforms... huh

    hMailServer is used in our 400+ employee business 24/7 for some rather critical secondary mail-services, though not as the main mail server (that's Exchange, as is to be expected). It hasn't let us down in the 10+ years it's in use, all 'failures' can be accounted to configuration/human error, not software failure  Thmbsup

    @Daleus: Might a couple of free e-books get you into the right direction? http://powershell.org/wp/ebooks/
    I guess a package manager just one of the minor subjects.

    Microsoft is turning more and more to PS for server management, so having (some) knowledge about it can come in handy for some of us.

    Finally making some good progress on Android coding..
    IF you are working on an Android version of PBOL, then please let me know, so I can stop pondering on whether I should start the project, because it is really short for my NANY to get it finished, and I really didn't start it yet embarassed (too much other stuff at hand Sad)

    I  agree with your objections and second your questions.
    This feels like a lawsuit-avoidance tactic. "Starting with version ...
    The above combination makes me really wonder why in earth's name a big multinational, like Oracle pretends to be, has to include crapware for some infamous minority like "Ask" Sad

    not sure about recent versions but use to the offline installers didn't have the offers.
    I'm quite sure recent versions have them, but you may have disabled the settings from the Control panel gadget that gets installed with the JRE. I only get the off-line installers, though I currently tend to no longer install a separate JRE (space-saver when having 3 installed JDK's).
    95  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Pledge: Installer Crapware Wrapper Detection DLL on: November 25, 2014, 04:10:05 PM
    which brings to mind the question... should it even be necessary?
    I  agree with your objections and second your questions. Especially when knowing that these 'sponsors' are only added to the JRE installers, and not to the JDK installers (not even the JRE installer included with those) AFAICS. But all a developer needs is a JDK (without the extra JRE), after all smiley

    The offer to install the Search App by Ask was still there, and checked by default.
    Oracle actually offers a solution for disabling those 'sponsor offers': https://www.java.com/en/d...ad/faq/disable_offers.xml

    I saw the announcement earlier this week on Dutch site tweakers.net (chrome can do a translation for you), so I thought: lets wait and see how well that's going to get adopted.
    Next would be a 'real' developers' monitor 1:1 with 2560x2560 resolution and a 27 to 30" diagonal size tellme When that arrives, I'll try to order 2 of those at work Cool

    100  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Is it wise for amateur to invest time in NET Framework languages? on: November 19, 2014, 01:51:31 PM
    (While I was typing, mouser also posted, but...) In addition to what mouser said:

    Javaw is as 'hard' as C#w, the mainstream .NET language, and does officially run on both Linux and Mac, next to Windows and a plethora of other OS's like Android (though with it's own programming model) and many embedded systems (think: IoTw).
    .NET languages can be (created, compiled and) run on Linux, and derivatives like Mac, using the Mono compilers and runtime, but it is a kinda 'reverse-engineered' solution, as it originally wasn't supported by Microsoft, and still isn't fully feature-complete compared to the current .NET runtime, and some parts will even never be done for Mono.

    The major IDE's for Java, Eclipse and NetBeans, are free. And there is a free community edition of IntelliJ IDEA by Jetbrains next to a paid version, where the free edition is also the base for the new Android Studio from Google (that currently has Eclipse as it's foundation).

    Next to that, solutions for any programming dilemma in Java can easily be found using Google, while for .NET that can be a lot harder to find, or end up in a commercial solution.

    (All of the above from personal experience)
