For many support question and error reports
it's always the same re-question: "What OS do you use", "Language settings", "Code page?", "Which graphic adapter?", "How many RAM?"
Well, there are many info tools who could answer that question.
My idea is to automate this behaviour:
i think about an little exe
that collect by double click (or hot key?)
all the answers and
paste it to the clip board. (Then user should be notified of the end of this action)
Then the user can simple paste the info's into an forum.
There should be a INI where user
can select what info should be collected
and how should the be formated (one long line with all items, on item each line, ....)
Maybe is a GUI for to select ad-hoc witch info should be copied better?
[ ] Processor [ ] IP-Address
[ ] RAM [ ] Graphic
[ ] Swap
Prefix [ (Spoiler=InventoryInfo) ]
Suffix [ (/Spoiler) ]
[collect and copy now]
For formating it would be nice to have an prefix- and suffix line too
for to add forum format syntax like [.B][/.B] or
I want to mention this tool on other forums that this is here available, would be an advertisement, isn't it?
Even is there is an about or an text-link in the gui like "Go to DonationCoder.com for more nifty tools"
