Find And Run Robot / Re: How to copy command line output in an alias?
« on: February 03, 2016, 07:10 PM »
ok good question..

heres what i THINK should work, an alias result that looked something like this:

appcap "path/to/script 20 ft to yards";;; copyclip %lastappcap%

i have not tested that, so i can't be entirely sure, and if you can't get that to work i will make sure it can be done somehow.

but here's how that's SUPPOSED to work:
The appcapp command should launch the specified program, and capture it's output in %lastappcap%.
Then the ;;; separates the next command to run, which tells farr to copy the contents of %lastappcap% to clipboard.

If that is all too messy, i might add a new appcap like appcclip to run an app and copy result to clipboard.

And, before you try making that work, you might try the simpler:
appcapappendmemo path/to/script 20 ft to yards

See here for an example: https://www.donation...ndex.php?topic=28136

All of them gave me the same error:

Trying appcapappendmemo with double quotes:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. appcapappendmemo "path/to/script $$1"

and appcapappendmemo without double quotes:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. appcapappendmemo path/to/script $$1

Trying appcap:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. appcap "C:\path\to\script $$1";;; copyclip %lastappcap%

In the results, it would show me (note unmatched double-quote):
Code: Text [Select]
  1. script $$1";;; copyclip

I tried sending:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. alias time in taiwan

All of the above shows displays this error:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. Error launching redirected commandline program: ("path\to\script time in taiwan")

For reference, this command works fine in cmd.exe:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. path\to\script time in taiwan

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions!

I'm going to have to look into the escaping of pipe character -- i thought that putting it in double quotes should work, but it's definitely possible I'm wrong.

But getting back to what you are trying to do..

Can you elaborate a little more on exactly what you are trying to do .. FARR does have commands for copying things to the clipboard, etc.

I have a script that will fetch results of a query, for example:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. > path/to/script 20 ft to yards
  2. 20 feet = 6.6 yards

I'd like to get that output into my clipboard without adding the clipping functionality to the script itself. Please let me know if I can help clarify further.

try using double quotes to surround the commandline.

Thanks for the lightning fast response!

Trying this as the alias:

Code: Text [Select]
  1. "echo $$1 | clip"

Running `test` shows `echo $$1` without the `| clip` part, so it seems that it may still not be escaping the pipe ("|") symbol properly. Any other suggestions?

Find And Run Robot / How to copy command line output in an alias?
« on: February 03, 2016, 11:44 AM »
Hi everyone! Loving FARR.

I am having some issues using a pipe ("|") within an alias:

echo test |clip

but the pipe has a special meaning within an alias.

Is there a way I can escape the pipe?
Is there another way I can easily copy the output of a command within an alias? I looked into copyclip "Special/Virtual Launch Strings/Commands", but could not figure out a solution.

Thanks in advance for any help!
