Re: Assign Contents to True Global Var

Have you gone through the TextPipe tutorial? I started to but it was painfully basic. Each file runs through each filter independently - you cannot rely on the order of things being done. At the time the add header filter is 'given' the start of the file to work on, the EP match has not yet occurre...

Re: Suppressing main output file

Seems to me you'd want to involve a T-Filter somewhere but that's just a hunch.

Re: Assign Contents to True Global Var

Well, it looks like I was misinformed. There is some global nature to the vars. I now have the EasyPattern filter command removing the found text and I can reference the vars created. HOWEVER, that reference only applies to the subsequent file processed. WTF? Abbreviated from the log: file A is open...

Assign Contents to True Global Var

I have another simple FLL that makes a space-formatted file into something usable by Excel. Very FAST :-) . I need to pick up three bits of information from the contents and at the very end, add them back into the header. I could painfully extract all the text surrounding it and delete, but it's muc...

Re: Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

Hi Bill, If you have a simplified set of filters (yours are pretty amazing!) with ..... Wow! Thanks for the compliment :-) People here are pretty happy with what I've done and there's still more to do. Meanwhile, I came up with this to build my list of filters to run. Since I don't want every filte...

Re: Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

Well, that certainly helped but alas and alack, it didn't fix it. I could always run the sub-filter files individually without problems but when linked in, something would go wrong with the pattern matching. Not having the time to see what was wrong, I went back to the for loop: FOR %%A IN (k:\{*.fl...

Maximum match size

From help: Changes the maximum search buffer size. If you need to match a string that is longer than 4096 bytes (4k), increase the Maximum text buffer size to be at least as large as the string you need to match. This seems to me to be stating that it will look ahead X (default=4096) bytes from the ...

Re: Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

Not really. The data files are confidential. I don't have time to munge the data. Would it still help to have the filter files?

Re: Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

Another idea that just hit me would be to create a main filter that links into all the known filters. Alas, this fails miserably. I'd put this in the bug section but I'm not completely sure it's a bug and the thread started here. Since the outermost filter file determines which files to process, I ...

Eval only? Help pane on right side

Does that annoying help pane still always show on the right when a paid copy is started? I didn't find a place to disable it permanently but presume it's an Eval thing.

Re: Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

Thanks. I didn't think about that though it won't be nice having all those instances popping up. Another idea that just hit me would be to create a main filter that links into all the known filters. Not quite as novice friendly but it saves the GUI instances. (I am eagerly awaiting my company's purc...

Command line: Tell TPipe to run all filters in folder

I need to be able to tell TextPipe to run all the filters found in a folder. I'm thinking of putting them on the TPipe server with a mounted folder.

I tried this command file
cd /d "%~d0%~p0\Files to Process\"
"C:\Program Files\DataMystic\TextPipe\textpipe.exe" "/F=..\Filters\*" /G
which didn't work.

Bug: Right click\delete

I have 8.17 Eval. Ran into what I consider a very ugly bug. If you have a list of filters and for example, row 35 is highlighted in blue then right click on row 26 and select delete, it kills row 35 -- not the row you clicked on. I've lost good filters thanks to that and due to the very limited undo...
