FARR Google Calculator Plugin
« on: September 07, 2009, 09:05:38 AM »
Hello:
I was looking for the Google Calculator plugin for FARR. I found this link: http://com/Google_Calculator.htmlczb.dcmembers. Unfortunately, when I try to download I get a 404. Is there a different location?
Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

The correct link is: http://czb.dcmembers...ogle_Calculator.html
Apparently it got mixed up.. Could you tell us where you got that link so that someone could fix it?

I think the main issue is that the plugin has been merged into czb pack, and is no longer available as a standalone plugin.  czb pack is here:

I've never been able to get gcal to work - no matter what I type, I get "Nothing found.", but I don't have any idea how it's supposed to work, either.  When I installed the czb pack, I got some html help files, but with the exception of JSCalc, all the help topics just say something about typing in text for the "New Tiddler".  Does anybody else have it working, or know how it's supposed to work?

I get that too, don't remember when it started, 'cause I remember it working once, but I just forgot to actually report it... :-[

It's really such an awesome plugin so I'd like to have it working again. will provide any necessary info to help!

Some of the links in "Available for installation" on the DC Updater screen are flaky/broken (have changed, but not been updated in DC Updater?).

Might that be the case with the DARR Google Calculator and czb pack too?

I've never been able to get gcal to work - no matter what I type, I get "Nothing found.", but I don't have any idea how it's supposed to work, either.  When I installed the czb pack, I got some html help files, but with the exception of JSCalc, all the help topics just say something about typing in text for the "New Tiddler".  Does anybody else have it working, or know how it's supposed to work?

Thank you very much for pointing out. I never noticed because I never used it :P I prefer to use jscalc. But I will fix it asap :Thmbsup:

EDIT: it should be corrected by now. You can either download new version of czb pack of modify one line in fsubscript.js

from
string = string.match(/<table>.*?calc_img\.gif.*?<b>(.*?)<\/b>.*?<\/table>/);
to
string = string.match(/<table.*?calc_img\.gif.*?<b>(.*?)<\/b>.*?<\/table>/);

Do you see the difference? :D

It took me a minute, but I did manage to spot the difference... ;)  I made that one change and it works perfectly.  It's a lot slower than JSCalc, obviously, so I'll continue to use it for everything it'll do, but Google Calc has some interesting capabilities...  Thanks!
