Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Calculate string-similarity
« on: October 24, 2018, 01:48 PM »
Well, here's version 1.0.0 of StringSimilarity. It supports both Lowenstein (distance only, integer value) (Damerau–Levenshtein as it's called in the interwebs) and Jaro-Winkler (distance and proximity, between 0 and 1) algorithms, with optional non-case-sensitive comparison (works for Jaro-Winkler only at the moment).

I'll be posting this sooner or later, and in a somewhat more polished form, as my NANY 2019 entry, for now it's still a bit rough around the edges.

Feedback highly appreciated.

Requirements:
- .NET runtime 4.5.2 or newer (Windows 7 with SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 should all provide that)

Installation:
- Unpack the zip file in a non-OS protected folder (not in Program Files or Windows directories that is)
- Run the .exe

Uninstallation:
- Close the application
- Remove all files

/Edit:
Disclaimer:
- Algorithms sourced on the interwebs

I've been reading up on the subject of string similarity, and it seems that the Jaro-Winkler distance/proximity algorithmw is something that would fit here.

I'll post a tool in a short while.

I'm triggered, but I don't quite understand yet how/what to calculate giving a result between 0 and 1 :huh:

For string-similarity, a technique called 'soundex' was popular, a few decades ago, but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for?

Screenshot Captor / Re: Thumbnails don't show embedded objects
« on: October 23, 2018, 12:50 PM »
I will probably re-install SC to see what happens then.
That's not going to help if the OS is causing the issue...

You probably have to clean up the thumbnail cache of Windows 7, a known culprit but there are solutions, this link describes a few methods

LaunchBar Commander / Re: One config for x86 and x64
« on: October 23, 2018, 03:45 AM »
Regarding running programs via a script/batch file, an alternative would be to run LBC via batch/script that checks the architecture of the OS and sets an environment variable with the appropriate path for the architecture.

Then preface those executables that can be either 32 or 64 bit with that variable rather than %programfiles%.
Well, as the OP already stated, Windows does a fine job there, it's only 'problematic' when x86 apps are used on an x64 OS where there is also an x64 version of that same app available and in use, and configs should be shared.
I think @mouser is on the right track already.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: One config for x86 and x64
« on: October 22, 2018, 11:50 AM »
You're saying you have x86 Notepad++ on x64 Windows? That's quite common as not all npp plugins seem to work properly in an x64 install, so x86 npp is usually the wisest/safest choice.
Guess you'll have to play with the other %programfiles*% environment variables, or run npp from a batch file that validates where the exe is actually found and starts it from there.

Screenshot Captor / Re: Thumbnails don't show embedded objects
« on: October 22, 2018, 08:52 AM »
Normally, after adding objects and saving the result I can see the combined image in my thumbnail view.

(Just tested on Win 7, though I'm normally on Win 10, where it also works as expected.)

What OS/version/release are you on?
And, have you installed the latest Screenshot Captor? (though this hasn't been reported before, AFAIK, neither recent nor in the last couple of years)
Maybe non-standard Video adapter installed?

108
Hm, Tab Mix Plus is for Firefox pre-v57 only, why do you want to promote a plugin that's not usable to most regular (up-to-date) FF users?

[OT]: This smells a lot like a spam message..., and also it should have gone into the existing thread of (nearly) the same name.
Any admin who agrees with me should IMHO remove this thread and probably the OP too.

As confirmed by Deozaan: it was a spammer. Thanks for fixing that :up:

If it helps, i could show with Delphi Code what i like to have implemented, ...
I hope I didn't give you the impression I'd be working on this, as I'm not. I don't (like to) do Javascript development... :-[

110
It seems you haven't filed a change request (or 2) in their issue tracker, and developers are known for their lazy response towards email, so maybe you could try that tracker first?
The language is Javascript, and that is quite comprehendable for a Delphi-guy (I say as a former Delphi-dev), it might require a little studying of that Electron library, but that is to be expected.

Doesn't your mouse supplier provide software for that? Most major brands do, AFAIK

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2019 -- ScrabbleScore
« on: October 01, 2018, 01:10 AM »
due small size i wonder how you calculate legitime words and wich languages will it support.
.NET can result in very small .exe files, as most of the code is in the framework, as opposed to Delphi, C++, etc., where all runtime stuff is (usually) linked into the .exe

I add the application as an attachment but it doesn't show up in the post.
You need to attach a .zip (or .7z) file, .exe is not accepted by the forum, AFAICS, and the maximum filesize is ~16 MB, but I guess that's not a problem.

Living Room / Re: Backup Power for USB device -- does it exist?
« on: September 26, 2018, 01:05 AM »
If it loses power momentarily then it will reset to the "application select screen" and require physical interaction to select and launch the correct app.
Are you sure that power is disconnected during boot of the RPi? Could it be that the device is reset via USB initialization commands? In that case, all your 'keep power applied' actions will be in vane...

Living Room / Re: Backup Power for USB device -- does it exist?
« on: September 25, 2018, 03:23 PM »
Some USB devices with the requirement of stable power have an extra powerplug mounted, I assume yours doesn't?

Maybe you can 'sabotage' a Y-cable, by cutting the + power wire on the RPi side, and providing stable power on the other end, besides the data wires, common ground is also a requirement.

Well, now that Firefox is thrown in :), this FF plugin sounds usable in this case: https://addons.mozil...-account-containers/

119
because the regex will be different! And I want to store the whole regex match in the file, which will be huge multiline text!
Whut? :o

We're back at square one. The circle is completed, again.

You have come here, asking for 'help'. Please provide us with what you want to achieve, and stop asking for small bits of silly info, with even more silly examples. This is not going to get you to a solution, as you obviously don't understand how problem-solving works.
I pretty sure I've said this before, a couple of weeks ago. :(
If you can't comply with that, I'd suggest all participants to ignore your requests until something useful comes out of your keyboard.

You have explained how to use it, but what's the purpose of this tool? I'm not gettin' it yet... :huh:
Solved.

121
I want to output to a separate file all the matches where the (.+?) is the same.
Run a second command on your previous output
Code: PowerShell [Select]
  1. gci FILEPATH\out.txt|group|select Count,Name >FILEPATH\out-counted.txt
The code is also the pseudo code.

~10 minutes later.

It auto-redirected to https and worked just fine from here (using Firefox and on my home connection)

General Software Discussion / Re: Big Data tools
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:59 PM »
I want to also be able to view the content,

Well, you could just buy EmEditor, it's not that expensive, or EditPad Pro, that does also handle really big files with ease.

For a freebee, check out the really old, and a bit harsh to download, MadEdit, it opened a > 20GB file without a hitch, and supports regex search and replace.



Like I suggested above, and me and others before, it would really get you more helpful answers if you specify what you want, need and desire complete instead of letting us pull those details with pliers, in the dark >:(

Haven't tested with log files bigger than 2GByte, so if 20GByte log files can be processed, I can't tell.
Well, I did and it wasn't nice,
Created a large file using this method
Installed RJ TextEd and tried to open it, with this result:

General Software Discussion / Re: Big Data tools
« on: September 14, 2018, 10:44 AM »
Is there a 'free for commercial use' software that opens and processes with regex large text files of 20GB?

TL;DR; Yes.

Suggestions:
  • Any Linux distro with a non-commercial license (most will fit)
  • Linux-tools for Windows (if it's supposed to run on Windows, you didn't say it should)
In any of these environments use tools like grep, sed, awk, perl, python etc. for text processing.

  • 'Plain' Windows (7 and newer)[/i]
Use powershell, like shown & explained in your other thread.
