Suggested new filter Add line widths

Post by DFH » Mon Jun 01, 2020 8:33 pm

In the Add branch of the Filter library, it could be useful to provide a new filter to Add line widths.

Currently, I have to resort to using the Excel™ formula =LEN(B1) to get this type of data.

The UI for this filter should include the means to specify Format as under Add line numbers.

Hi David - do you mean add the length of the line?

If so, this is very easy to do as follows with a scripting filter:

Code: Select all

function processLine(line, EOL)
  processLine = line & " " & len(line) & EOL
end function

sub startJob()
end sub

sub endJob()
end sub

function startFile()
  a = 0
  startFile = ""
end function

function endFile()
  endFile = ""
end function
