Rename script request
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hi, guys! Long time no chat.

I am looking for some help. I need a script to rename 600+ files. The filename has the date in it, I want to change the format.

mark_ritter_31072020_1628_xxxx_yyy.jpg

I want to change JUST the date format to:

mark_ritter_2020-07-31_1628_xxxx_yyy.jpg

leaving the rest of the filename the same. The date is in the same position for every filename.

I would like an ARexx or DOS script. Put it in the drawer. Execute it. It scans in all the names and renames them.

Thanks!!!

@jabirulo

To be honest, I have not turned my X5000 on in almost a year. I took a break after AmiWest 2019. Bought an Oculus Quest. Played with that all winter. This summer has been staying home. Some day I will get back in the groove of things. Just a little burnt out after 5 straight years of programming WEx.

Candy pen pals wanted
Just popping in
Just popping in


A girl I work with posted this on Facebook:

Does somebody want to be pen pals, but instead of letters we just send typical candy from our country?

I thought that was pretty cool. I thought: what better place than an Amiga forum to reach out to the world?

Would anyone be willing to send a little package to me to give to her on her birthday? Nothing elaborate, just a few packs of candy or snacks. Maybe a post card of your city/country with your info on it (email for sure) in the package? I would be more than willing to reimburse you for the price of the candy and shipping via PayPal. Or we could send you some candy back.

Thank you!

@virgola

The Quest has been great. Kept me busy all winter. In my area we are barely affected. Some are doing self quarantine, but not mandatory.

I have not done any programming recently. I am kind of weird about that: you would think I would do more in the winter, but I do more in the spring/summer. So I will get back into it soon.

I don't intend to make it a full IDE like Jamie is doing, but simple key press to compile from a makefile is planned. Maybe more stuff down the road.

Thanks for the continued interest.

@jap

I have taken a bit of a break from my Amigas. After Amiwest 2019 I just felt burned out. So I finally did what I say every winter: I need to get a game machine to help keep me busy/distracted in the winter.

I bought an Oculus Quest and I LOVE it. Best investment I could have made.

When will I get back to programming? Maybe this spring.

I did some digging in my code. I think I have everything, just have to grab from a few sources and cobble it together.

Overlay an image

Is there a way to load 2 PNG images and overlay the smaller of the 2 over the larger one at specified coordinates, resulting in a new image (Object)? Keeping any transparency.

I want to load a PNG image, then put an arrow (PNG) in the corner. It needs to be done "on the fly" if needed, and with different images, so can't just make one of each image ahead of time.

@Daytona675x

Bingo! You got it!

I was creating a new node either before or after node1, copy node1 to new node, copy node2 to node1, delete node2. Had to modify it for every program. There should be an easier way........

Thanks for your persistence. This could help a lot of people.

@Daytona675x

Nice! Your first version did not work, the latest one does.

Thank you both!


EDIT:
It works with neighboring nodes, but not with like 1&3, 3&7. Neighboring nodes is all I really need, though.

Does anyone have some code that will swap 2 items in a List? Using Exec functions: AddHead(), Insert(), AddTail().


I have a list with 10 items. I want to swap items 4 and 5, or 7 and 3.

SwapListItems(struct List *List,uint32 Item1,uint32 Item2)
{
}

Own screen will be an option. WB window will be the norm.

@Kamelito

Performance first. My thought for UTF8 was for when doing locale strings, not so much for everyday programming.

GPU scrolling, no idea how to do that.

I have not looked into optimizing yet. Still working on some of the core functions. I am working on getting to a point where I can use it to edit it's own code without too much hassle. Not too far to go.......

Re: Text file encoding

It looks like UTF8 is still far from a friendly, usable state. More work than I want to put in at this time. And if it will slow things down processing the extra bits, then no. I want it to be as fast/smooth as possible.

The syntax highlighting slows things down a little (depending on language), and it is not as accurate as I would like. I would rather spend my time fixing that.

Thanks for the input.

@nbache

I was thinking about adding menu options to "Load as UTF-8" and "Paste as UTF-8". I don't know if saving involves anything extra. I have never used a UTF-8 text file. I wouldn't be looking to do anything overly complicated like finding a correct font (we don't have many). If the users locale can display the characters then great.

Like you said, looking ahead, but nothing complicated.

OK, sounds like UTF-8 is out. I didn't know how (in)complete OS4's handling of it was.

I just had some code that does UTF-8 to Latin1 conversion on a string. But I don't have any save code, if it is any different.

Text file encoding

Is there really a need anymore to convert a text file to/from ANSI to/from UTF8?

Going from UTF8 to ANSI would just strip out any extended characters, yes?

Going from ANSI to UTF8 would do nothing until you add your new extended characters, yes?

So just always stay in UTF8 encoding since it is a global Amiga scene, not just English. Yes?

Yes, I saw that.

The last one I need/want is AMOS/AMOS2. I haven't found anything easy to work with.
