I think we may try to do more of this in the future..
RIT Labs has given us 2 free copies of TheBat! Pro to give out as prizes for some coding snack thing related to TheBat!
I would like to give these to the first two people who write a plugin/addon for thebat, whether it happens this week or whenever.
I am open to different ideas, if you have a strong idea, but I have had an idea for a freeware program that i would like to interface with TheBat, and I think that it would be great if someone made a nice addon/plugin that was really made as a helper for other people to write programs that interface with TheBat!. So, I would like to suggest that one of the plugins be set up so that from the macro you can specify an exe filename, and some optional named options, and the plugin would invoke the exe, and "capture" its output, either by capturing stdout, or just reading the results from some specified output file. I can help clarify this on request. The basic idea is that this would be a macro plugin that could be used to run an arbitrary commandline tool, passing it options and grabbing its output. There are some existing addons/plugins already written for thebat, and they may be able to be adapted to do this quite easily.
