Maybe there are workarounds but does this imply that this (unusual) behaviour should be ignored (I won't elaborate on why I don't like the workarounds...)?
Currently I can't say in which specific situations it happens that my cursor is in the middle of the input line, but sometimes it happens (in general everytime I want to correct a word).

It would really be nice if this were fixed  :Thmbsup:

As mentioned in the subject using CTRL+Backspace should delete the word which is on the left side of the cursor, not the last word in the entered line. Unfortunately FARR does the latter.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Browser script error?
« on: March 20, 2009, 09:08 PM »
mouser: perhaps you haven't heard of it, but in the end it's time saving: Write tests! Functions that call other functions, classes etc. and expect a certain result. After each build all tests should be run, all successful of course  8)
Some people go so far(r) to write the tests before they've implemented the function to test.

Find And Run Robot / Umlaut problem in file browser
« on: March 14, 2009, 08:54 PM »
I think umlauts are not processed properly in file browsing mode.
Folders with such characters ARE found when just typing in something (normal mode) but when switching to file browsing mode they can't be accessed by writing them out. I think the screenshots are self-explanatory; The first and the last one show that the folder is displayed (as a child of the parent folder) and the second one shows that I cannot access the folder. Even writing the whole string does not help; pressing enter does nothing then.

Edit: Important observation: When renaming the folder to "übungsblätter" [ü instead of Ü], the problem does not occur (using ü in the input works correctly). Nevertheless this seems like a bug to me. Furthermore the input should be case-insensitive also for umlauts (typing Ü with the renamed folder yields no results)... I bet, somewhere there's a proper toLowerCase-function or something like that.

Find And Run Robot / Plugin aliases shown in file browsing mode
« on: March 14, 2009, 08:48 PM »
Perhaps I missed something, but suddenly I can see some plugin's aliases in the file browsing mode, when the last character is a '\', see appended screenshots. Is this a bug or a feature? (I would like to deactivate that)

Have you tried agroups?

You first have to specify which content $$1, $$2 etc. may have. Is it possible that they also contain spaces?

Find And Run Robot / Re: Search Folders Only?
« on: November 18, 2008, 08:59 PM »
Use the dosearch function!  ;D
Import this into your alias list:
1000>>>test>->dosearch +\ $$1>+>\$ (.*)

Then $ foo searches for folders with foo.
Of course you can change the regular expression such that it fits your needs.

I'm quite surprised, that I also scored 0, with approx. -11dpt on both eyes and a little astigmatism (Ok, I wore my glasses while doing the test  8) )

Good point!
^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:(?:-*\>)|-{2,}|;)\s*(.+?)\s*$

Cool  8)
With semicolon and (because I think the aforementioned "- issue" is not critical) without the \ before -:
^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:(?:-*\>)|-{2,}|;|,)\s*(.+?)\s*$

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Alias: Google Maps Directions
« on: September 21, 2008, 01:06 PM »
I've added more separators:
^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:(?:\-*\>)|,|\-{2,})\s*(.+?)\s*$

This supports arrows with arbitrary length (>, ->, -->, --->, etc.), comma and "lines" with arbitrary positive length >= 2 (--, ---, etc.).
Remember, that the first complete separator in the input is used.

\- may be replaced with - but this version is safer because in some constellations - can become part of a modifier.

« on: September 12, 2008, 08:32 PM »
^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:(?:\-?\>)|(?:;))\s*(.+?)\s*$
should do it (but I have not tested it so much).

The following version does the same but is more compact:
^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:\-?\>)\s*(.+?)\s*$

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Alias: Google Maps Directions

Use (?:;) to let $$1 and $$2 contain the two locations.
Perhaps " -> " or ">" (without the "") are a good separators, too?
Here is a relatively robust regex:

^route \s*(.+?)\s*(?:(?:\-\>)|(?:\>))\s*(.+?)\s*$

It matches
route a -> b and route a > b with arbitrary many spaces between route, the first location, the arrow, the second location and the end of the line. Use $$1 and $$2 to access the locations!

In my opinion it should be an option per search path. Perhaps realized as a little checkbox  (with describing text).

Another way would be to introduce a special character (e.g. / or \) to use in the file extensions restriction list but I guess this would be an exceptional case in the processing of that list (which is not good).
Example: pdf;txt;/;odt  would display PDFs, TXTs, ODTs and directories.

It would be nice if it were possible to show matching folders (in a specified search folder) even when file extension restrictions are used.

I want to find only files with the extension pdf, txt or odt in %MYDOCUMENTS% but also directories.

I tried pdf;txt;odt and pdf;txt;odt; and pdt;txt;odt;; and pdt;txt;odt; ; but none of them let the directories appear.

Find And Run Robot / Re: $$c for $$2 or another regular expression?
« on: August 31, 2008, 11:28 AM »
Your hint worked - but what if I want to access the non-captured groups in the "Result Filter for RegEx"?

What I want:
a) Typing wiki should result in the following aliases being shown: Wikipedia (Deutsch), Wikipedia (English), Wiktionary (Deutsch), Wiktionary (English), Wikiquote (Deutsch), Wikiquote (English), ..., Wikimedia
a²) Typing wikt should show only the Wiktionary entries.
b) These aliases should be directly accessible when typing wiki (no space after it), which means that every entry can be activated without having to enter a group (which would require pressing enter twice in total)
c) If no argument is manually entered ([space]+words), the last selected or copied text should be used
d) Adding more characters, e.g. a p should narrow the displayed aliases (e.g. to the two Wikipedia entries)
e) The original order of the entries should be preserved

Examples: In the following "foobar" is in the clipboard. _ is used to display the space character at the end of inputs.

1) wikipediaX, wikipX show normal file/alias search for wikipediaX, wikipX
2) wiki, wiki_ show all wiki-related aliases with foobar as argument
3) wiki baz shows all wiki-related aliases with baz as argument

4) wikip, wikipe, ..., wikipedia, wikip_, wikipe_, ..., wikipedia_ show both Wikipedia entries with foobar as argument
5) wikip baz, wikipe baz, ..., wikipedia baz show both Wikipedia entries with baz as argument

6) wikt, wikti, ..., wiktionary, wikt_, wikti_, ..., wiktionary_ show both Wiktionary entries with foobar as argument
7) wikt baz, wikti baz, ..., wiktionary baz show both Wiktionary entries with baz as argument

The alias lines currently look like this:
Wikipedia (English) - $$c | htmlviewurl http://en.wikipedia....l:Search&search=$$c /ICON=icons\wikipedia.ico

What I tried:
1. One big alias group called wiki
1.1 With regular expression ^wiki (.*)  ->  a), b), c) OK but d) does not work.
1.2 With regular expression ^(?:wiki|wikipedia|wiktionary|wikiquote|wikibooks|wikiversity|wikinews|wikimedia) (.*)  -> a), b), c) OK but d) does not work completely. Typing wikiquote does show results but it shows all results. Not using (?:...) would result in $$1 being used which would make $$c unusable, therefore c) unfulfilled.

2. Many small alias groups "wikipedia", "wiktionary", "wikiquote", "wikibooks", "wikiversity", "wikinews", "wikimedia". With regular expression ^(?:wiki|wikipedia) (.*), ^(?:wiki|wiktionary) (.*) etc.  -> Typing wiki hides the wiktionary alias group -> unacceptable

3. Many small alias groups, all called "wiki"
3.1 Using regular expressions like ^wiki(?:pedia|pedi|ped|pe|p)? (.*), ^wik(?:i|t(?:ionary|ionar|iona|ion|io|i)?) (.*)  -> a), b), c) OK but d) does not work
3.2 Using regular expressions like ^wiki(?:pedia|pedi|ped|pe|p)?\ ?(.*), ^wik(?:i|t(?:ionary|ionar|iona|ion|io|i)?)\ ?(.*)  -> a), b) OK, c), d) almost OK since entering wikiped shows the wikipedia alias with copied text (good) and the wiktionary alias with "ped" as argument.

Do you have any ideas how to realize what I want?

Using "Result Filter for RegEx" hurts requirement e) - I want the results only to be filtered - not sorted.

I think the easiest (and also the most general) solution would be
1. An option (perhaps inline) that the Result Filter does not changes the alias order
2. A function like this: ifempty(variable1, variable2)=variable1 if variable1 is not empty, variable2 otherwise

With this I could simply use a big alias group with the regular expression ^(wik(?:i|t)[^\ ]*)\ ?(.*) and entries using ifempty($$2,$c).

Is this documented somewhere?

Find And Run Robot / $$c for $$2 or another regular expression?
« on: August 28, 2008, 01:06 PM »
To reach some flexibility, I set up several different spellings for the same command, for example
^(vid|vids|video|videos) (.*)
as a regular expression pattern. Then I use $$2 to access the entered text in the actual commands.
Now I've found $$c which takes the clipboard text if $$1 is empty and $$1 otherwise. Unfortunately this is not so helpful in that situation.

Is there a $$c - like expression for $$2, $$3 etc.? If not, how could I rewrite the expression to have the actual user input stored in $$1?
-> What I really need is just another pair of grouping brackets which is not a capturing group.

This is not really on-topic but I just wanted to mention the following application: QTTabBar
Once installed, there is a nice little search bar available which filters the current's folder contens by what you type.
I've attached a screenshot from my current WinXP configuration with QTTabBar and QTAdressBar (and BricoPack Vista Inspirat 2). In the example I typed "fi" into the search bar which results in all entries not containing "fi" being filtered out.
