Get DiskFile Lines clip questions
- Hello Jody,
I just snatched a copy of your Get DiskFile Lines clip. I thought it would
be an easy way to compare the different meta tags in different html files.
In eager anticipation I fired it up, but it's telling me that "there was no
matching criteria for <!DOCTYPE in the directory I searched (which contains
at least fifteen files that have DOCTYPE on their first lines.
I'm searching for *.htm files on line 1, DOCTYPE case sensitive set off (why
is default on?) and have tried both Same and Different (I'm not sure I
understand what these do).
1) Any ideas here?
2) would it be easy to modify the clip to search the whole file for a
string, rather than specific lines (ie have an ALL LINES option under
3) Could you document what your clip options do, preferably by including
examples? It makes learning so much easier, although I know that documenting
code is not much fun to do. It's also good to document a couple of examples
of what the clip could be used for.

drunk on coffee or, OH, I bet it was my script and I used <
instead of > in the conversion so when the script got to:
^!If ^%Index% > ^%Count% ShowTime
It actually changed it to:
^!If ^%Index% < ^%Count% ShowTime
If you change the one sign in your script it should work as long
as you did not use Opera to get it.
and obviously thought it was done when in fact it hadn't even
started. <g> I had made a new wizard that automates the stuff
for Snatch-A-Clip a bit better that the way I was doing it and...
It appears I am going to have to put in regular HTML instead of
wrapping the Clips in <PRE> because Opera wraps lines if there is
a blank line. I don't want to cram it all together either. I
did change it though for now. I will have to modify the near 30
Clips I have up there.

though. I don't know if I can be able to tell when it has
finished searching a file though. I haven't looked into it that
deep. BTW, I just found out that if there is certain Clip code
in the disk file searched it will fail. I search all over my
current Library I was testing in for that Clip. <bg>

Snatch-A-Clip. I did not do it in this one though in my DirStuff
and in fact did not even update the info that it was even there.
:) I really dread doing that kind of stuff. I guess I figured
that one was self-explanatory which you might think so too now
that it is working.
I don't know why I made the default as case sensitive other than
I was drunk on coffee at dark-thirty am and it looked good at
that time. ;) I changed the default to non-case sensitive for you.
Thanks for letting me know. Not to many people take the time out
to do that.
