Sorting?

Hi Simon:

Any updates on the status of the sort filter fix, and the x64 textpipeengine.dll?

Extra character added with simple filter?

Using the textpipeengine.dll version 9.1, Windows 7 x64: If I use the simple filter #23 (MIME Encode) on the source file, and then pass the resulting file to a filter #24 (MIME Decode), the resulting file is not identical to the original source -- it has a trailing 0x0F character added at the end.

Grep filter and countMatches

Hi Simon: Not sure if this is confusion in the documentation or something wrong with the Grep filter: Using the TextPipe Engine, I'm calling addGrepFilter with "countMatches=1". The help says: countMatches - true to only output a count of the number of matches, default False But what it actually doe...

Re: Textpipe Engine cut option (columns / field)

Hi Simon:

I haven't been able to figure this out in the GUI either -- if you can provide an example using the TextPipe GUI, I can export the filter to Javascript and interpret the addSelectionFilter syntax from there.

Thanks.

Re: Textpipe Engine cut option (columns / field)

OK, but I still don't understand how to do a "cut". Say I want to extract columns 20 - 40 and put them in a new file. The "copy" duplicates 20-40, and inserts it at the beginning of the line. The "move" moves 20-40 to column 1, but I still have the unwanted 1-20 following it. Do I have to use a rest...

Textpipe Engine cut option (columns / field)

Hi Simon: I'm trying to figure out how to use textpipeengine.dll to cut text (i.e., by columns or fields). I'm assuming from the docs that I want the "addSelectionFilter" -- is that true? The docs say it "almost always requires sub filters in order to have any effect". Is that still true for a cut o...

Re: TextPipe engine is always writing to an (unwanted) log f

I kludged around it for now by putting a TerminateProcess() at the end of my app so that textpipeengine.dll wouldn't have a chance to run its exit code. I'm unsure that it wont cause a problem if there's any code that textpipeengine.dll *should* be running when it exits, but it does work around the ...

Re: TextPipe engine is always writing to an (unwanted) log f

I poked around a bit, and found that the "c:\aemail" directory and the "datamystic.log" file were being created at shutdown. Apparently it's in the textpipeengine.dll shutdown code, because I can't do anything to avoid executing that code from my app.

TextPipe engine is always writing to an (unwanted) log file

The TextPipe Engine is creating a log file C:\AEMAIL\DATAMYSTIC.LOG every time it's run. Where is that coming from, and can it be disabled?

Re: addNumberFilter is mishandling Unicode files

Internally, TextPipe works with text on a character-by-character basis (ANSI/ASCII), although UTF-8 works fine. UTF-8 *mostly* works, but there are some places (like in the column wrapping filters) where TextPipe counts 2 & 3-byte UTF-8 characters as 2 and 3 characters, so the right column is wrong...

Re: addNumberFilter is mishandling Unicode files

OK, after poking around some more I found the undocumented addUnicodeConversionFilter2 API, which hopefully will do what I need (once I figure out the possible string arguments). But I'm still wondering about #2 -- how is TextPipe handling the text internally? The Unicode support appears somewhat ha...

Re: addNumberFilter is mishandling Unicode files

TextPipe doesn't do anything you don't tell it to, so it won't convert the file to and from Unicode either. So at the top of your filter list, add a Convert UTF16LE to UTF-8 filter, and at the bottom, the reverse. Hmm -- I tried to add this to my code, but there doesn't appear to be any (documented...

Re: addNumberFilter is mishandling Unicode files

Hi Simon: I didn't want TextPipe to convert the file from / to Unicode; I wanted it to remain in Unicode but insert the (Unicode!) CR/LF's at the new column width. Instead, the file remained in Unicode but had ASCII CR/LF strings inserted, converting the file from Unicode to gibberish. I can check t...

Re: addNumberFilter is mishandling Unicode files

I just tried it with the TextPipe GUI (Wrap filter), and it does the same thing. (The GUI also refuses to process the Unicode text file unless I tell it not to skip binary files -- should it be treating a Unicode text file as binary?)
