I'm hoping to grep text files from the FARR command line, or at least open ScanFs with the arguments I type in to FARR.

Based on this 10-year old thread:
... I end up with the following alias in myaliases.alias (just changing the launch path).

<Result>grep $$1 $$2 | C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Saleen Software\Saleen ScanFs\ScanFs.exe /path=$$1 /contents=&quot;$$2&quot;&gt;+&gt;^grep (\S*) (.*)</Result>

If I type "grep" into FARR it opens ScanFs, but has whatever I typed in to ScanFs the last time it ran.  If I try to add arguments in FARR ("grep *.txt needle") I just get from FARR "Sorry, no results."

Any suggestions *greatly* appreciated!

Find And Run Robot / farr lock in: plugin or feature request?
« on: September 12, 2017, 08:38 AM »
Would this be a plugin or a feature: When I launch farr I basically want it to own the focus until I choose something from farr.  i.e., nobody gets the focus until farr allows it, or if they do somehow it immediately takes it back and restores my cursor position.  So no accidental mouse clicks outside of farr, and no background processes launching that seem to vaporize the focus.

So if I launch farr, I'm either going to select something from the search bar, open farr help, open farr options, or hit <esc> to deliberately exit.

Man, that would be golden for me...

Is there a way to use the keyboard to get form the FARR command line (where I type) straight into the "Shell Context Menu" or "Properties" for the top item in the result list?  I've been right-clicking on the item and then navigating to one of those two menu choices with the mouse.

Thanks for any help-

Got most of it crammed into the subject there.  I have a new laptop and somewhat regularly I bring up farr and start typing only to find that I accidentally touched the mouse pad.  So the focus has left the farr command entry area and may be in another app, or on the desktop, or even still in farr but down on one of the items in the result list.

Any ideas for coding a hotkey to take me back to the farr focus?  Could be in farr, but I'm also lightly versed in ahk.  Current workaround is to re-hit the hotkey I use to launch farr, but depending on where the focus is, sometimes one re-click does it, sometimes 2, and occasionally 3.  I'm not tied to preserving anything I might have already entered successfully (ok to kill off the farr session and start over, or to leave it as is and just get me back).

Thanks for any suggests!  Sorry to be burning people's time with my fat thumb pads. ;)

Find And Run Robot / Find Or Load URL?
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:58 PM »

I have a number of urls that I visit pretty regularly.  I create links to them and put all the links in a folder in my FARR path.

So far, so good.

But sometimes I go to open one of the url's from FARR and then discover I already had it open in an existing browser tab.  Or, I think I have it open in the first place and end up alt-tabbing and ctrl-tabbing to the browser(s) and through the tabs but come up empty (and then launch it from FARR). 

Is there a way in FARR to bring a browser tab up to the foreground if it's already open, OR open the url if it isn't?

Thanks for any suggests-
