I get to the MEGA site just fine, and it loads and then displays a download button, which I click and then:

It gives me an error message:

Doesn't include any valid URL!
It does show progress. I only get an error message at the end and no file is actually downloaded (it says 0 bytes)

Odd, fine here too...

I finally gave up on getting it via FireFox and used Chrome, and got it fine!

Just curious, so now that I'm home, I tried it in FF.  When I tried to use flashgot on the resulting download from mega after pressing the button, I got a weird url and it tried to download an index.html, which failed and left me with a 0 byte partial file.  The address for that file was http://blob:9971c197...e0-bf99-36634b09fba0.

When I bypassed FlashGot and GetRight, it downloaded fine.

Strange.

Some more suggestions:
(taken from an old plugin for Notepad++,but that plugin doesn't works anymore...)

Some functions ask multiple optional parameters. Just see what you can do with it.

All line functions

  • ReverseLines(): Reverses the order of all the lines.
  • Scramble(): rearranges the lines in random order.
  • SetBlanks(int minblank, int maxblank, int threshhold): Changes the number of blank lines between lines.
  • SortCase(): Like sort, but case-sensitive.
  • Wrap(int columncount, int ignorewords): Adds hard returns to force columns to a certain width.

Per-Line Functions

  • AddLineNumbers(string separator, string padchar, int length): Puts the line number on the front of each line, with an optional separator.
  • AddLineNumbersOffset(string separator, string padchar, int length, int offset): Puts the line number on the front of each line, with an optional separator.  Offset is the number of the first line.
  • BeginLine(string text): Appends text to the beginning of every line.
  • CutLeft(int count): Removes count characters from the beginning of each line.
  • CutRight(int count): Removes count characters from the end of each line.
  • DeleteToTag(string tag): For each line, deletes all characters before first instance of tag
  • EndLine(string text): Appends text to the end of every line.
  • PadLeft(string padchar, int length): Pads the beginning of each line with padchar to extend the length where necessary
  • PadRight(string padchar, int length): Pads the end of each line with padchar to extend the length where necessary
  • ShortenLeft(int length): Removes characters from the beginning of each line if the line is too long
  • ShortenRight(int length): Removes characters from the end of each line if the line is too long
  • SizeLeft(string padchar, int length): Pads or cuts the beginning of each line to make it the exact length
  • SizeRight(string padchar, int length): Pads or cuts the end of each line to make it the exact length
  • Trim(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the beginning and end of every line.
  • TrimLeft(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the beginning of every line.
  • TrimRight(string badchars): Strips all badchars from the end of every line.

Deleting Lines

  • DeleteDupes(): Deletes any line that is identical to a previous line.

Search and Replace

  • Replace(string oldtext, string newtext): Replaces all instances of oldtext with newtext.

Thanks DeVamp. That's quite a list! Have any priorities?

You could attach it to the original release-post, so it's stored somewhere in the forum-space, and always available as long as the forum is :up:

I tend to host it b/c of the bandwidth concerns, so don't feel too bad...  Everyone that downloads it here is adding to the burden of bandwidth.  But with yours only being 17k, some of the images on DC are larger than the archive ;)

Hey phitsc,

No real priorities.
You can do as you see fit.

Maybe youi can put a link to this topic in the about section. :)
Makes it easier to check for updates.
Or you could use the donationcoder update mechanism. :)

Anyway, thanks for the program and the implementations of my suggestions :)

Get the file at the bottom of the first post, *not* the 'Download' link... Now it's fixed.

I got some more suggestions.


When you use order -> reverse words, scramble lines and scramble within words
the layout is completly gone.

And with the "alphabeth", I personally would prefer to have the list under each other.

[A, 9]
[C, 4]
[D, 3]
[E, 1]
....


Cheers :)

0.7 adds:
* Streamlined layout
* Added ignore case toggle button (and Ctrl + I)
* Added reverse output toggle button (and Ctrl + R)
* Some additional keyboard shortcuts
* Using monospace font for input/output boxes
* Clicking the link in About now opens a web browser

Wow, nice additions.

I like the ignore case.

Something else that came to my mind:
Within the lines section, add an option to insert linenumbers.
the input is: <##>:
the result :
01:
02:
03:
....
10:
11:
...
100:
101:

or

the input is: <####>:
the result :
0001:
0002:
0003:
...
0010:
0011:
...
0100:
0101:


Just an idea. :)

How do you mean the layout's gone with scramble lines?
