I thought there was already a FARR alias for taskdaddy -- before i create one, does one already exist? or does someone else want to take a shot at making it?

Wow, I'm on Youtube, or actually TaskDaddy is. Got a good feeling seeing that, great job on the screencast, I couldn't have done better myself.

Now that I am past the end-of-year crunch, I will try to put some thought into where to take TaskDaddy. To my knowledge, there is no existing FARR alias for TaskDaddy and I have not started one, and it would be a cool idea.

I had a lot of hopes for expanding this program but I am unable to do so for personal reasons.

By way of tying up one loose end, all versions of TaskDaddy are hereby released under the CC BY 3.0 license.

I wish to thank all of you here for your support.

Love the song - I can resonate with that.
Thanks DD.

10-Years-Later.jpg

Although development on this has stopped, it has bothered me for some time that I lost the _OptParse.au3 file TaskDaddy depended on, and also it appears the whole internet has lost it as well. This prevented people from being able to easily build TaskDaddy themselves.  After being unable to find a good substitute for _OptParse, I discovered it was just as easy to use the AutoIt built-in $CmdLine array for both option and task parsing.  I also realized that, for interfacing with Outlook, I only use 3 of the functions from Wooltown's Outlook.au3, and 2 of those I had to modify, so I just created a separate module with those 3 functions. (In the meantime, Wooltown has redesigned Outlook.au3 into OutlookEX if you are interested.)

So it needs more testing, but as of today I think I've done it: created a buildable version with no missing files and pushed it here: https://github.com/daddydave/taskdaddy
No feature updates expected, but at least it can be built again. I'll update the first post in this thread soon. Thank you for your support!

P.S. I (re-)discovered this script only works when it is compiled, because of how the $CmdLine array works.
