Pydoc and getting results in Farr
« on: May 14, 2009, 09:39:55 PM »
Hi

I want to use Farr to query python document. There is a module for it and it would print out to console. I know there were some works regarding getting console output. Is it something doable at the moment with latest release?

mouser thanks, this turned out to be easier than I thought. This will be instant help access for me.

I have 2 questions or suggestions.

-Spacing(of words) of console output is not same inside Farr. The content looks little scrabled due to that.  Is there a way to force formatting?

-Any way to change memo background color?

can you elaborate about issue 1? maybe a screenshot?
as for memo background color -- not currently but would be easy to add.

In the original one all these words are aligned but not in Farr

ah yes i see -- its not a fixed spacing font.
i can add an option to fix that i think -- to workaround it for now, go to options, custom font settings, and set a fixed font for the memo.

added command to temporarily put memo into fixed font mode, since i think kartal's need will match others.
the command is:
tempmemofont fixed

or you can use
tempmemofont custom
to put memo into the custom configured font setting temporarily.

it will revert to normal on next search.



ps.
i notice that your output says "please wait a moment..."
and just point out that the next version of FARR lets you call
appcapappendmemo
instead of appcap
which will show lines as they are outputted by the console tool, which is useful for commandline tools that take a bit of time to run.



features will be in next update.

mouser

How do you use "tempmemofont fixed " in the alias though?
