It Won't Kill You
Figured I'd donate, wouldn't kill me, great site. I've got Process Tamer running, I had it on a previous machine as well, figured it was time I made a donation. I know running a site can get expensive, and writing code takes time. I always like supporting small businesses and individuals running sites when what they have to offer is of use to me.

Coding Snack: My text file manipulation needs

blog clipart
A DC member asks:

Hallo!
I am a writer and not a programmer, but am in search of easy to use tools to tackle simple tasks.
They are almost always associated with text files & a tagged CSV English - German dictionary.
For the tasks I have I would like to try and use AutoHotKey. I seem to have no luck with programming languages.
The task I am trying to perform is:
1. Open a simple text file of sentences.
2. Open a CSV dictionary file
3. Read words in turn from the text file, find them each in the dictionary and
4. Copy the Parts-of-Speech for each from dictionary
5. Write the tags in brackets following each word in the text file.
Is it possible to do this uising AutoHotKey?
Has anyne tried it or done it?
Can he or she help me?
Or has one of the donation-coders a better way?
I'd be very grateful.
Thanks and regards, forkinpm.
