Re: downloading web-page by TP

Thanks for fix Simon,

But this does not fix the bigger issue where https urls are skipped all together (unless this has been fixed since TP v8.9.9).
They simply are not even logged during processing the input file list. i.e. original request from nikolas1612 for https://sev.life/

Re: downloading web-page by TP

I also have issues with accessing sites using https It seems like Textpipe is simply ignoring filenames beginning with https as there is no file input record created in the status tab when processing. Furthermore, it skips these filenames in a split second (no time for even sending the request to th...

Copy and paste 'Secondary output filter'

When I copy a 'Secondary output filter' either by itself or as part of a group of filters...it drops out when pasted elsewhere in the file.

Run External Program save issue

If I 'check' the 'Remove files on completion' checkbox in the 'Run external program' filter...TP does not sense that it is modified.
I cannot save it with 'Run external program' checked unless I modify something else to signal a change.

Re: Relative paths option for the location of replace lists?

If I open a fll file from a previous version of TP... Does the newer TP update/convert all filters, names and Help links, etc? I am assuming, Yes. If Yes, if I DO NOT save the updated fll file, I am guessing it retains the old TP settings...and would be updated every time it is opened. Is there any ...

Re: Relative paths option for the location of replace lists?

Thank you Simon! Something strange has just happened...folder open button (when pointing to a relative path) now seems to work. Path convention 'folder\filename.txt' which I tested a couple of days ago did not work ; but now seems to work (is this a supported convention?). The Help file for filter "...

ID unique/duplicate lines

I am ripping data to create a relational database. When I rip a column/field from my source file…it needs to be de-duplicated and then an ID assigned (add line number)…pretty simple. I also, must create a replace list that will find the string in the source file and replace it with the ID. (running ...

Re: Search/Replace List memory issue

Simon, I emailed you the original data to test.

Simultaneous replace does not work as they contain patterns; not 'exact' matches.

But again, I figured out a more efficient solution...

Thanks,

Re: Relative paths option for the location of replace lists?

Ah yes, it does work as expected, thanks for clarify Simon. However, the Help files are not clear about it's usage and the two main filters do not mention it at all (Files to Process, Output Filter). Maybe the original Help line: ("A path can be specified relative to the current filter path.") could...

Re: Search/Replace List memory issue

Attached is a filter with three input files and a tab deliminated Replace list. If a smaller Replace list is used...it works fine; otherwise TextPipe throws errors or simply stops. However, I have since figured out a more efficient way of getting what I need here...so fixing this is not an issue; bu...

Re: Relative paths option for the location of replace lists?

Relative paths seem to be limited and not work as expected... Putting a simple filename (no path) in the Filename field(s) works as expected, i.e. 'myfile.txt'. But, I need to create folders for many types of output and grab input from folders as well, thus... Inserting a path such as this: '\output...

If a run a Search/Replace List of 10,000 lines (3.5Mb) against 3 (100 line 45kb) input files...problems occur... Immediately TextPipe will hang and the header bar may or may not say "Not Responding". After about 4 minutes TextPipe will come back to life and throw errors: "Out of memory" "Not enough ...
