Find And Run Robot / macros
« on: January 28, 2006, 02:03 PM »
Mouser, are there any macros available for use in the "groups" section?  What I mean --

Currently, I use the groups to quickly access several favorite search engines. I'd like to do something similar, but instead of running searches use it to open a file from a list of programs.   In this case, what I need is a full path macro so I could set up items in the group like

EditPad | C:\Program files.... -%fullpath%
Opera | C:\Program files.... -%fullpath%

Etc. -- so I could match *.html files and bring up those options, from there I could view the file in my browser or edit it in my text editor.  Further macros that would make it even more useful would be directory navigation based for opening files that are on my webserver, numbering directories from the root.  So in c:\html\prawn\fr c: would be %root%, html would be %dir1%, prawn would be %dir2% etc. -- using %dir2% would print 'prawn' while, perhaps %dir2+% would print 'prawn\fr\' then %filename% would print 'index.html'  -- so with this:

Opera | localhost://%dir2+%%filename%

I could open opera to http://localhost://prawn\fr\index.html
--the backslashes/forward slashes would be inconsistent without a way to toggle them, but the browser ought to be able to sort htem out.  %dir2+/% or %dir2+\% could be used to toggle them as well, I suppose.

This might be something not broadly useful though, or you might already have something better in place I haven't figured out yet.  Just throwing ideas around.

I'm partial to VU Player, myself -- largely unknown and definitely underrated -- but might have to give your baby there a try.

Reminds me of the Vegitales song -- "We are the pirates who don't do anything . . ." They ought to modify it and use it as a theme song.

(My son is my excuse for knowing vegitales songs  ;)

It's prior versions were only moderately useful -- it choked with really advanced regexes and certain code and such.  My biggest problem was that I was trying to make it portable in case there was any demand for, and I decided to share, the source.  I finally gave up on portability, at least for the moment,  so it only runs if magic_quotes_gpc are disabled on the php server.  That should be a relatively easy fix if I get around to it, though.  So, I -think- everything is in order, unless of course some regex buffs can find error.  At least the obvious ones are out of the way now.

I totally agree with you, jgpaiva.  I couldn't help myself from jumping on that cheap pun, though  :D
