@zridling: It's a shame you do not search the forum before posting  thumb down
Is it really a "shame?" I search when posting new topics many times, but not for in-topic posts. I start with 'most recent posts' and work my way from there, otherwise, I'd never have time to do anything but search given the size of DonationCoder.com now.

But hey, thanks for keeping up with Flexible Renamer. I'd given up on it, and it's design is fantastic.

FYI
Denis thinks about stopping developing his apps, including ReNamer.  Sad
Please say him an last "Thank You Denis"  Thmbsup  ==> I may not be able to develop and support these tools any longer... read full post.

Thankfully, after the responses, he opted for the right path: Development will continue! smiley

Denis is back ==> The not easy story of the development, and the new way of things ==> http://den4b.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=438


And he is sedulous again:

New Beta after full release 5.25 from 8 Apr 2008...

Beta from 22 Apr 2008 ==> http://www.den4b.com/foru...wtopic.php?pid=1974#p1974
----------------------------
Just to update:
The experimental version of ReNamer is ready, where Filters settings can be saved and loaded with individual Presets.
Both of these have been implemented and they DO require some testing:
* Added ability to save Filter Settings together with a Preset;
* Added split panel in status bar to display current preset and modification sign;
Tell me how it goes, ok?

* Integrated dEXIF libraries to parse EXIF tags (works on problematic JPEG files);

WildRename looks pretty good.  Anyone using it yet?

Thanks!

Both http://www.cylog.org/ and http://www.cylog.co.uk/ are up and running. Still takes a long minute to load but it's working.

Looks like a powerful rename tool with simulation mode and undo option. All files and settings are saved in the application folder  thumbs up.

Just wanted to say that I've started to use Renamer more than BRU and Flash Renamer. I really love the ability to saving different batches of rules. Very convenient -- and individual rules can be turned on/off. Haven't found a renamer that does it as well.  thumbs up


PS : One thing that could be useful would be a feature allowing to anotate some rules and batches to rapidly see what they do -- especially convenient when working with loooonnng regex. I might bring the suggestion directly to the developer.

Do this please ;-)

FYI, ReNamers RegEx engine supports (?#my comments)

Therefore, many modern regex flavors allow you to insert comments into regexes.
The syntax is (?#comment) where "comment" can be whatever you want,
as long as it does not contain a closing round bracket.
The regex engine ignores everything after the (?# until the first closing round bracket.
http://www.regular-expressions.info/comments.html

f.ex.  \d*(?#find an digit, null or more)
Try it out and tell us how it works.

-

And i found out "Free-Spacing Regular Expressions" is supported too
Quote
In free-spacing mode, whitespace between regular expression tokens is ignored.
Whitespace includes spaces, tabs and line breaks.
Note that only whitespace between tokens is ignored.
E.g. a b c is the same as abc in free-spacing mode,
http://www.regular-expres...ons.info/freespacing.html

-

For comments on saving presets...
you could add an PascalScript-RULE for your comments only. (without any script, just comment only

You have to comment-out this comments.
You can use either of these commenting styles:
{ comments }
// comments
(* comments *)

Hey, AbteriX, thanks a lot!

Yes. (I'm still a beginner at regex, but I should've thought about that...   embarassed )
It works well! Of course, it's not as clean looking as a special comment section, but it's not that important.

Good option too, I'll try it.

The way I actually  inserted comments in between groups of rules is simply using a regex rule and write my comments there (a long sentence/comment will never match with anything, so it can be used as a comment)
