program needed to change a long list of names written in Last, First format to First Last. it must be able to handle a list of at least 256 names.

e.g.
the list:
Smith, John
Jenkins, P.M.
Sanders, Jerry S.

gets changed to:
John Smith
P.M. Jenkins
Jerry S. Sanders

i haven't been able to use it for a while. seems to be working a lot better. i don't like the thing that says "can't find any" because i have to click "ok" every time and i'd rather just let it run and go do something else. if it can't find any i'd rather it just skipped it. been big help so far.

good work so far.
It does not need to generate a preview, however I don’t really care about that.
It seems to have problems handling more than a few hundred and I have thousands of items.
Very often it doesn’t get the first image. When I run a search manually I find a different, and correct, image, even after multiple tries. The file it’s finding is not the first result.
This may relate to another problem. When I enter a list of similar items it grabs the same image for all of them. Example, I search for “Robin #1” and “Robin #2” and Robin #{3, 4, … n} it grabs the same picture for all of them. Yet manually I get a different picture for each. (in this example they are all pics of the bird which is not near the first result) I realize this may be part of the encoding issue.
Also, some of the items may not be acceptable as file names, using characters that cannot be used in file names. I suppose we’ll just have to skip these for now.

nice. however, there were some problems.
when the .txt file is selected it does not get the content of the file
copying the items to the text area is fine, however it only grabs the first 64 lines/images. is there a way to increase the number to as close to unlimited as possible?

i would like a program that grabs the first result of a google images search and renames the flle based on the search terms. the search terms come from a list. this is a long list and each line, or list item, is each search string and needs to be the name of the file grabbed. this list is a .txt file
the images are to be saved in a folder i choose/create. the files should be .jpg if they are not already. if there are no results then no file is named.

example: 1) program reads 'picture of a red ball' from the .txt file 2) program googles for 'picture of a red ball' in google images 3) program saves
 the first result as 'picture of a red ball.jpg'

more e.g.
list -
some guy on boat
nov090147
happy death comics #110
abcxyz
123456

resulting file names after grab -
some guy on boat.jpg
nov090147.jpg
happy death comics #110.jpg
abcxyz.jpg
123456.jpg
