Precisely.

It is complete and working better than expected.

A BIG THANK YOU GOES TO JGPAIVA!

I'll be donating to the site later this week. What a great community.

Hey it works. Better than I could ask for actually... ignoring lines without the syntax and everything.

I made a few little changes to the GUI to make it more windows-like.

Just one thing, could you add a little tag before the text, saying the real percentage, in 100% base denominator? So the text would read "[50%] foobar" instead of just "foobar"...

Thank you for this.

Great, thanks for your quick response!

As long as we're already doing this, and I'll be donating to either the site or the coder, why not kick it up a notch? :)

I was thinking maybe adding an editable textfield inside the msgbox or window where this random line would appear. to make it easier to change the probability of it appearing next time...

Let me know if you have any suggestions. i by the way would be using it as a nifty todo list utility, helping me decide what to do next.

EDIT: Yeah and language doesn't matter. exe, ahk, vbs, just let it work on windows.

This may seem useless to most, so if it's too difficult to make I am willing to donate a few coins, if it is allowed, to spur some motivation.

I need a script that will work something like this: once executed it will output a random line from a specified text file.

Except, there would be a little probability involved.

Each line in this text file is specially formatted in a particular syntax: "<NUMBER>, <TEXT>". The number represents the probability of the text to display in cumulative percentage.

Take for example this txt file with these two lines in it:

10, helloworld
10, foobar

50/50 chance either would be displayed. In contrast, if it was:

518572, helloworld
10, foobar

99.9% you'll see "helloworld".

Let me know how feasible it is. I will donate to either the site or the coder. 15-20$ depending on difficulty sounds ok? I really don't know.
