Description
At my work, we use a lot of log files as TXT files, created from the treatment of invoices.
Now we browse through them with notepad or another text editor.
Since all invoice logging is put in the same file, it's hard to track what all happened with a certain log file.
It would be handy for us to be able to filter and sort invoices and the events that happened with it.

It would be template based, so that you can choose/create a template that defines the number of columns and it they are a fixed with or with a seperator.

example of a logfile:
Spoiler
Default seperator is #
Output in atachment

It's my first try at using Autoit. It looks like a perfect environment to create tools like that.

Read, sort & filter the content of the logfile

Planned Features
Program
  • Save and load setttings to ini files
  • Load default settings or previous settings when starting the program
Templates:
  • Create template : define number of fields and columntitles, how to read log file (fixed with, seperator, ...)
  • Create template : Eventually define a default directory per template
  • Edit template : Modify an existing template
  • Delete template : Delete an existing template
Logdetails:
  • Sort every column
  • Filter a certain column

Future Features
  • Export/add a selection of records to a new/existing log file
  • Export/add a filtered view to a new/existing log file
  • Reformat a log file from templayelayout X to templatelayout Y, as a new file or replace an existing file
  • Batch reformat a selection of files
  • Read multiple log files and treat them as one, so you can filter/sort over several files
  • ... idea's welcome ...

Sounds interesting.  I haven't found a really good IIS log file parser (NOT that I've exhausted the Internet  :-\ ) so I'm wondering if this would work on files like that?  If you need someone to test it on those...  ;)

Hi there,

I'm probably not going to make it before 01/01/11.

There are a couple of reasons, but the most important one is that I'm expecting my first child begin February.
And we normally move house in march or april.
So we are quite busy preparing those things and they ask more time then i thought. :'(

I'm not abandoning, but putting on hold, because it's actually something I can really use at work, but I don't get the time for it at work.

As one does. I'm the same: I change my car every time the ashtray gets full  :D
