Formulas

Post by void »

Everything 1.5.0.1322a adds formulas.



With formulas you can:
Customize the formatting of properties with custom columns.
Search for files and folders when using $property-name: and the formula evaluates to true.
See the result when using the /= search command.
Change setting values from the search box.



Formulas support C style expressions.

For example, show the size in bits in column 1:
column1:=$size:*8 add-column:column1



Custom columns

There are 16 assignable custom columns.
Column values can be accessed with the Column 0 - Column 9 or Column A - Column F properties.


To set a custom column, include the following in your search:
column1:=formula

where 1 is the column number (0-9) and formula is the column formula.

For example:
column1:=1+1
<foo column1:=1> | <bar column1:=0>



Properties can be referenced with $property-name:
Use - for spaces in the property name.

For example:
column1:=$size:*8
column1:=day($date-modified:)
column1:=len($regular-expression-match-1:)



Searching with formulas

Examples:

$date-modified:==$date-created: (date-modified is equal to date-created)
UPPER($name:)>="N" UPPER($name:)<="S" (Name starts with N to S)
$name:[1]=='o' (Second letter of name is o)
len($stem:)%3==0 (Stem length is a multiple of 3)
*.lnk !exists($shortcut-target:) (find lnk files where the shortcut target doesn't exist in your index)



View the result of the expression

Type in your expression with the /= prefix and press ENTER.

For example:

/=now()
/=year(now()).."-"..month(now()).."-"..day(now())



Change setting values

Type in your expression with the / prefix and press ENTER.

For example:

/window_x=rand()%1000;window_y=rand()%1000
/window_x=window_y
/alternate_row_color=!alternate_row_color

Do the regex functions work?
I thought the following would fill the column with the matched text. And if this were to work, how would you select named groups?
column1:=REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:, ".+") add-column:column1

Also how do you use the RegularExpressionMatch columns? I tried:
  • Thought maybe the match groups were perhaps populated when REGEX_EXTRACT is run:
    REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:, "\W*(\w+)") add-column:RegularExpressionMatch0 add-column:REgularExpressionMatch1
  • Tried setting the variable:
    <$regular-expression-match-1:=REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:, ".+")> add-column:Column0 add-column:RegularExpressionMatch0 add-column:RegularExpressionMatch1
  • Various combination of earlier attempts like:
    Column0:=REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:, ".+") add-column:Column0 add-column:RegularExpressionMatch0 add-column:REgularExpressionMatch1
The following is a very rough expression (gets me ~<90% there) of what I eventually want to run. The goal is to pick out poorly formatted usernames & names of people from file names, the names could be Snake (_|.|\s delimited), Pascal, Kebab, or Camel case. After I verified the basics worked, the next step was to figure out how to select the 'name' group and fill the column with it - not sure if that's possible though? Flavor is PCRE2(PHP>=7.3), I think that's the implementation in Everything...

Thank You!
In case someone else ends up finding this via google, I went with the following (but with all spacing removed). I was pleasantly surprised I could nest the functions!:

Code: Select all

#define<:extracted-user-name=#{: 
add-column:Column0   
column0:=REGEX_EXTRACT(
             REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:,
             "(?|
               (?:(?>\#[A-Za-z]+[\s0-9]*\s)?(?>(?i:\&|\+|[ai][tnms]?|are|and|by|have|how|m[ey]|o[rfn]|the|that|[dt]o|for)(?:[\s\.\-]+|\b))?
               (?<name>(?:[A-Za-z]{2,}[\sA-Z\_][a-zA-Z0-9_]+)|(?:[a-zA-Z]{3,}\.?[a-zA-Z0-9_]+)|(?:[a-zA-Z0-9]{10,}))
               (?=[,\s\-]+(?:(?i:\&|\+|[ai][tnms]?|are|and|by|have|how|m[ey]|o[rfn]|the|that|[dt]o|for)(?:[\s\.\-]+|\b))?))
              )"
             ),
         "^(?:\#[A-Za-z]+[\s0-9]*\s)?(.+)"
         ) 
#}:#>: 
Then added that function to my list of defines filter.

Code: Select all

#define<:extracted-user-name=#{: add-column:Column0   column0:=REGEX_EXTRACT(REGEX_EXTRACT($Name:,"(?|(?:(?>\#[A-Za-z]+[\s0-9]*\s)?(?>(?i:\&|\+|[ai][tnms]?|are|and|by|have|how|m[ey]|o[rfn]|the|that|[dt]o|for)(?:[\s\.\-]+|\b))?(?<name>(?:[A-Za-z]{2,}[\sA-Z\_][a-zA-Z0-9_]+)|(?:[a-zA-Z]{3,}\.?[a-zA-Z0-9_]+)|(?:[a-zA-Z0-9]{10,}))(?=[,\s\-]+(?:(?i:\&|\+|[ai][tnms]?|are|and|by|have|how|m[ey]|o[rfn]|the|that|[dt]o|for)(?:[\s\.\-]+|\b))?)))"),"^(?:\#[A-Za-z]+[\s0-9]*\s)?(.+)") #}:#>:

The underscore (_) can be omitted in function names.
I'll leave them in the descriptions for readability.
I've added this note to the main post.


ANd the "?" operator are not listed/explained in this post.
Column Formulas support C style expressions.
This includes the ternary conditional operator.

Ternary conditional operator:
expression '?' true-value ':' false-value

if expression is true, the true-value is returned.
if expression is false, the false-value is returned.

For example:

len($name:)>5?"long name":"short name"

if length of the name is longer than 5, return "long name" else return "short name"

Re: Search Formulas

Post by void »

I've renamed "Column Formulas" to "Formulas".

Everything will now use Formulas when no search function is specified and $property-name: is used.

The file or folder matches if the formula evaluates to true.

Examples:

$date-modified:==$date-created: (date-modified is equal to date-created)
UPPER($name:)>="N" UPPER($name:)<="S" (Name starts with N to S)
$name:[1]=='o' (Second letter of name is o)
len($stem:)%3==0 (Stem length is a multiple of 3)
*.lnk !exists($shortcut-target:) (find lnk files where the shortcut target doesn't exist)

Re: Formulas

exists() checks the filename from your index (not from disk)

Please check the value from the shortcut target column (right click the result list column header and click Add columns)
Please make sure it matches the filename in your index.

Environment variables in shortcut targets are expanded.

For example:
%windir%
%appdata%



There are some limitations.

::{GUID} shell parse paths are not expanded.



Opening a shortcut can sometimes fix the shortcut target as Windows tracks the file by ObjectID.



Does Everything find postman.exe if you search for:

That is called Link Tracking and is a NTFS feature (that Windows can use).
The "sometimes" part comes from Windows as it uses link tracking for -- IIRC -- shellfolders only, like desktop or startmenu.

(This same mechanism is being used for embedded documnents, like a spreadsheet graph in a powerpoint presentation; move the spreadsheet and the presentation knows about the new location))

This is a bug.

You'll see results immediately.
Instead of having to wait for Everything to assign the values for results offscreen.

Good to know it's not intented for dirs.

And about the conditions for calculation of cols:
only assign custom columns when they are visible, you perform a search on a custom column or sort by a custom column
should I undertand above as
1) only assign custom columns when ( "they are visible" AND ("you perform a search on a custom column or sort by a custom column"))
or
2) only assign custom columns when ( "they are visible" OR "you perform a search on a custom column" OR "sort by a custom column")
Finally, I wonder if

Everything-1.5.0.1366a-mod1 fixes an issue with assigning custom columns for folders.

The custom column value should be shown correctly in this version.

Everything-1.5.0.1366a.x64-Setup-mod1.exe
Everything-1.5.0.1366a.x86-Setup-mod1.exe
Everything-1.5.0.1366a.x64-mod1.zip
Everything-1.5.0.1366a.x86-mod1.zip

Everything should behave exactly the same as before.
Please let me know if the issue persist with this version.

2) only assign custom columns when ( "they are visible" OR "you perform a search on a custom column" OR "sort by a custom column")

Basically, the first time the custom column value is referenced it is assigned.

Yes, dupe: will sort your results by column 1.
Your column1 values will be assigned during this sort.

Interesting - I would think the trig functions could be used on GPS properties or for files with coords in the actual name.
If not already there, it might be useful to have a "distance from function" (lat, long) so you could find photos near to a certain location based on the embedded GPS data.
Perhaps a function to catch the coords in a string based on some prefix, e.g. GetLng('Geo ', (filename or string formula) ) would catch the longitude from ...Geo 123.456,123.456 ... -- when I save interesting photos from iNaturalist I put the geographic coords in the filename. GetLng('', string) could look at the start of the string. Similarly a GetLat().
Actually I think GetLat GetLng could be done with a generalised function which I make as a separate post.

Re: Formulas

OK so this would be my idea if it's not already there, a general substring extractor based on string markers.

If I look at my filenames they often contain markers with information. For example this is a file saved from iNaturalist -

Limodorum abortivum - OBS 55734247 - USR frank375 - NME Frank Walther - DTE 2016-03-29 - ATT allreserved - GEO 36.534603,30.556682,100m Phaselis RG 2

I generate the names by pasting some JS into the command window and it gathers up all the info into a single string which I then use when saving the file.

What would be needed would be a substring extractor that looks for case sensitive markers, thus for example -
SubstrByMark( string , 'GEO ', ',', ',' )
would find the marker GEO then move 4 characters (the len of 'GEO ') then find the marker ',' then move 1 character (the len of ',') then find the marker ',' and because that's the last parameter it would take all the characters between that point and the prior marker-plus-length i.e. it would return 30.556682 (the longitude).
SubstrByMark( string , 'GEO ', ',', ',', ' ' ) (with an extra space param) would return 100m (the geo accuracy)
Something like SubstrByMark( string , ' - ' ) because it only has the final marker would return Limodorum abortivum
it could decode longer CSV stretches in file names just by finding any CSV start marker and then using the appropriate number of comma parameters to get to the column position.

:shock: It doesn't get much more specific than that ;)


Formulas are building blocks. Use them in the right combination and order to get the information you are looking for.
For example, to find the longitude:

Code: Select all

addcolumn:B  B-label:=Long  column1:=SUBSTR($name:,EVAL(LEN("- GEO ")+FIND("- GEO ",$name:)),255)    B:=ELEMENT(column1:,",",2)

BTW:
A regular expression might be easier in these cases; when (part of) the filename can be described as a pattern -- the structure of these filenames definitely follow a strict pattern -- a regular expression most likely will be able to describe them and extract the needed information.

Another option could possibly be to use the file properties of these files).




@void:
the ELEMENT() formula behaves unexpected with multiple separator chars. See the following:

Code: Select all

count:1   addcolumn:column1,A   column1:="some,text,with,a space character.extension"   A:=ELEMENT(column1:," ,",4)
Should extract the fourth field, separated by either a comma or a space. It does not.
Furthermore: the order of the separator chars makes a difference:
ELEMENT(column1:," ,",4) and ELEMENT(column1:,", ",4) yield different results.
( ELEMENTCOUNT() differs too in these cases)


Also: A suggestion to change the behaviour of SUBSTR(text,start,length) and SUBSTRING(...) to:
SUBSTR(text,start[,length])

So SUBSTR("123456789",2) will extract text from position 2 to the end of the text, without the need to use an extra LEN() or specifying a very large number.

Or is SUBSTR() an alias for MID()? In that case, please ignore ...

Everything tries to implement SQL SUBSTR:
https://www.w3schools.com/sql/func_mysql_substr.asp

I'm currently ignoring this:
length Optional. The number of characters to extract. If omitted, the whole string will be returned (from the start position)
I'll add support for optional length.

Everything 1.5.0.1368a improves formulas.



Everything 1368a fixes an issue with precedence for some operations.
Previous versions was using the wrong precedence for / * and %
10000/60/60 will now evaluate to 2 (instead of 10000)



The length in SUBSTR and SUBSTRING is now optional.
The remaining length is used if not specified.



ELEMENT() will now support multiple delimiters.



Added DATE(), TIME() and TIMEVALUE()
I explored using Excels day = 1.0 date/time serial numbers.
However, Everything will use FILETIMEs as the date/time serial number since Everything primarily works with FILETIMEs.
I will note this as a formula Excel quirk.
Everything uses day = 864000000000 as the date/time serial number.



Added N()
