Find And Run Robot / Re: Smart search Alias with Locate32

Glad I could help :Thmbsup:

Not sure if you need the "(.*)" part in the RegEx, and the "$$1" in the Results. If I understood correctly he simply wants to list all the .xspf files, not have any restrictions on the name. So perhaps some wildcard in the Locate32 paramters to list all .xspf files is required instead of the $$1. Just '*' I assume.

While I cannot help you as I don't know Locate32's parameters, I'm pretty sure it is possible, if you can search for files with a certain extension using Locate32. Would be something of the form dosearch loc32 *.xspf (not sure how you can call the plugin, and how you can search for files with a certain extension, sorry :))

This regexp:


Allows simple expressions, not using any parenthesis but that could be easily fixed I assume. Not much time now :) This way you can use +, -, *, /, and ^. Just add more to the regexp.

Dont put spaces between the numbers and operators, regexp doesn't allow that yet but again, can be added. Gotta go now, mb I'll enhance it later tonight.


Slightly improved:

You can import it directly using this:
1000>>>FCalc>->Calculate $$1 | dosearch fc $$1>+>(\(?\s?\d+(?:\s?[+-/*^]\s?\(?\s?\d+\s?\)?)+)

This allows both parenthesis and spacing between numbers and operators. For example, this is all valid input:
1 + ( 5 * 5 )
1 + (5 * 5)
1 + (5*5)


You can ofcourse expand the equation with more operands and operators. Please note I currently do not allow for more than 1 space, but it's easily adjusted by editing each \s? (whitespace, 1 or 0 times), to \s* (whitespace, zero or more times).

This should be sufficient for most input imho, I hope I am not forgetting something here :). Feel free to improve or (dramatically) change. Not gonna spend a lot more time on this; you can probably increase the amount of available operators (I have only included 5 now) :)

Pretty sure you have to type fc and there is no real way around this. Well, you can shorten it to, say, the '=' sign or something.

Great suggestion, will be useful indeed :Thmbsup:

Find And Run Robot / Re: Tray Icon ..
« on: November 02, 2008, 06:24 PM »
FWIW, I look at tray icons in some cases to see if certain things are running -- I know this doesn't work out in all situations, but it's been useful for me enough to want to leave at least FARR's icon visible.
Well, we have the Task Manager for that :) Besides, you should always have FARR running, no icon should be required to check if it is ;)

Not so sure about this, I only use one shortcut - Alt + Space to activate FARR. Is everybody else using other shortcuts that often?

Oh crap, you made me google Microsoft Speed Launch ;D

But judging by the video on this page, FARR beats in pretty much every possible way.

Would be nice as there is no reason at all to have a tray icon ;) Same is true for most apps which do install one, though.

« on: October 21, 2008, 01:53 PM »
Run games at your native resolution ;) Full screen video shouldn't change the resolution. Other than that, I am out of suggestions so wait for Mouser's reply :)

I think Mouser would like to know which version of Windows you are running (+ service pack) :) I can't remember having the same issue running Windows XP SP3..

Find And Run Robot / Re: File is there, can't find it
« on: October 17, 2008, 02:06 PM »
I am pretty sure 0 means only the root directory (= no recursion), while -1 would search all subdirectories recursively with no limit. -2 would not do anything and would probably default to -1.

I also have a folder in my scripts folder which contains my entire control panel (all shortcuts), so I use that as a workaround. I do not need to browse the control panel as I know what I need from it. As far as I know it is currently not possible to browse the control panel using FARR.

I do not know anything about the development of plugins for farr nor the farr api so you would have to ask mouser (he created farr and responds very frequently here on the forum, so just wait :))

Simply create a shortcut to the folder you wish to add in the \scripts\ directory (or basically any directory that farr searches). That way farr will autocomplete and you can browse the directory.

The shortcut to C:\ could be named simply 'C' or maybe something like 'System' and it works just fine :)


About the C: -> C:\ issue; you can enter it once and farr will then autocomplete it from C: if you enable history. It's not a permanent solution, though, as farr will over time 'forget' that history item if you do not regularly open C:\ (so not any of its subdirs). Other history items will overwrite it eventually. However, creating a shortcut to C:\ named just 'C' will still do the trick.

By the way for people who dont know about the keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+Backspace, FarrMilk is the ideal place to use it -- it removes the last word on in the search box, which for FarrMilk almost always is like a back button.  :up:
ALT + LARROW does the same thing doesn't it?

Excellent update phitsc! I like you can now only show the title. Still a minor thing; now that the whole bottom line (which can contain priority, due date etc) is empty I think it makes sense to use a bigger font size for the title like in the screenshots I posted :)

Great work  :-*

Ah I didn't tick 'only show used task properties', that helped already. But now the only thing remaining is "List: Inbox", which I really couldn't care less about. My point was that if "List: Inbox" would also be removed, the title could take up more (vertical) space, like in these screens:

Just another thing I thought about; as I (and maybe more of us) only use rtm as-if it was a (physical) todo list - so without details -, I'd like it to have an option to disable the display of all the details on the task page. This way, it allows the task title to be bigger and take up more space and it looks a bit cleaner. I really do not need to reed the tasks are in my inbox and have no due date 10 times :)

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: New plugin: FARR Remember The Milk 0.1.0
« on: September 30, 2008, 02:38 PM »
Something that annoys me a little bit is that the task list is not the same for 1 task vs. more tasks. With more tasks, it's a simple short list. If you have only 1 task, however, the list suddenly shows all the details about this 1 task (instead of having to select it and press enter). It's not consistent and I think don't really like it :) I like just seeing the title I gave it in the first place, I never add details anyway.

Very nice work! I would like it, though, if the default choice for both 'add' and 'delete' would be 'task' and not list. I know it's sorted alphabetically but it doesn't make so much sense as you would want to add and delete tasks so many more times than you would add or delete lists.

Find And Run Robot / Re: save file feature?
« on: September 16, 2008, 07:12 PM »
FARR doesn't really have a way to have external apps interact with it directly so I'm guessing this won't be possible soon.

As a workaround just save the file to the desktop, open the desired folder with farr and move the file.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Match Alias First?
« on: September 16, 2008, 07:08 PM »
Oh definitely make it an option, please keep the realtime searching  :-*. Also, try to make it possible to have FARR search both the index and the search folders. This way, it is possible to search through the index of major folders (if desired) and the Search Folders at the same time.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Match Alias First?
« on: September 16, 2008, 02:04 PM »
I still believe you should never index search through directories like %ProgramFiles% and %windir% as it doesn't seem to make sense. (Mouser, it seems like an idea to add some kind of indexing technique for people who like to search though huge folders like these)

For example, my C:\Programs has 50 folders (top-level) and contains 55,000 files, of which you probably want to find 50 (the .exe's of programs)? Searching through 55,000 files to find 50 just seems inefficient at the very least. It's most likely even worse with %windir%

You could edit (or add if you don't use it now) the Regular Expression to ^en (.*)$. I don't know what the alias is supposed to do, but this way 'en' will definitely match the alias.

CatamountJack, it might be the case the "Release Notes.txt" is actually stored in one of your program file folders, but a shortcut is placed in your start menu. This way I assume FARR will still list the file as it actually finds the file in your start menu, whereas the .exe & .bat extension restriction is not active. A shortcut is .lnk anyway and does not have the linked file's extension. Maybe post a screenshot of FARR when you have entered 'notes' in the bar so we can see it.
