"You are not authorised to send private messages"

Post by Stamimail » Mon Dec 18, 2017 10:00 am

@therube
What program did you use to make this pic?

I know that such a pic can be made by scroll capture, but I didn't find a program with good capturing function.
I think I was looking for in past to capture a kind of a map, which means scroll both up-down and left-right scroll capture.

You could give FastStone Capture (Shareware) a try: http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm
I use it for almost 10 years and are very satisfied.

http://faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm

Current version is Shareware ($$).
Old version is Freeware (a search should find it on some freeware sites).

Old was fine, but at some point Mozilla changed their concept of "scrolling windows" (& a lot of my shots are from within SeaMonkey browser) & the old would no longer capture that, but the newer pay does. So depending on your needs, the old, free may work just fine.

I've used FSCapture for a long time now, since the old free, into the new pay.


There are others, including free, that do scrolling captures, but its been some time since I've looked at them & don't recall their names offhand.

NotNull wrote:regex:^^[0-9]{4}" - ".*
As a beginner with Regex, I have 2 questions:
1. Why using double ^^?
2. The using of quotation marks " - " is it special for Everything, or you can find it also in other places?

Good questions!

1. That was anticipating on the next step. For Everything, one ^ is enough, but doesn't mind multiple ^^ (It's "just" a marker for the start of the filename).
The query will end up on the CMD command-line, where ^ is an escape-character. If yoy want a literal ^, you have to escape it with .. a ^ : ^^
In short: Everything doesn't mind the ^^, CMD needs it.

BTW a "|" from your Everything query also has to be escaped in CMD: ^|


2. That is valid in more places. Note that there are multiple regular expression 'languages', each with their own syntax (largely the same, but with little differences)
It isn't documented (*), but a space could also be represented by a "\s" ( regex:^^[0-9]{4}\s-\s.* )


(*) I used to try to avoid using regular expressions. Each time I had to use SED, AWK and the like (not very often), I basically had to re-learn it and read lots of documentation. So I tried to work around that (good for creativity ;-) )
Since using Everything however, I find myself using regex more and more. That's because Eveything has a smart subset of the gazillion exotic regex options and a perfectly clean and clear documentation for it ( Menu:Help > Regex Syntax ).
Probably those exotic options are implemented in Everything, too (most programs use an existing library), but at least they don't clutter up the documentation.
Long story short: I hope those extra options will not be documented.

@NotNull
Thanks. Now it's more clear.
I don't think that the Regex info in Everything is enough to learn Regex from. The user needs some examples to learn and understand how things work.
I began by articles like this and this.
As you, I think you can't remember all these things unless you messing with it often.
Not as you, I don't see a problem to add "\s" and such to Regex Syntax Help. It's good there is a full documentation for all options.
If you afraid it will be too much long, you can keep the short form and use a reference to a full documentation.

@ovg
Thank you. I bookmarked those sites.
As NotNull said, the problem is not with learning it, but because people (like me) don't use it very often, they need to re-learn it each time they need it.

That's a good idea: Add to the current (short, simple) help: "Everything uses the xyz regular expression syntax" (with a link to xyz).

@ovg: I really like the last 2 of those links.
rexegg.com (nice wordplay :-)) has a fresh viewpoint, which made it easy to digest the info.
the online tester at regex101.com also displays the 'price' of a query. Learned a lot already (after 5 minutes :-) )

Thanks!!

No worries, mate. I still have some Everything related projects to finish (and post here), among which an EFU browser, Everything as a File Explorer replacement and a really cool one that I'm currently working on.
Maybe I'm gonna create a "whitelist" of people that I will help. And you're definitely on that.
I'll let you know if and when I leave this forum.

I guess that void also has plans and work in this direction. I don't know if you two talking each other behind the scenes, but it seems for best results you should.

Nice! I just solved my first 3 puzzles and that was fun.
Beginner level, to be clear. I took a look at the more complicated ones and that looks like a cat walked on the upper row of a keyboard :-)
You probably need a black belt in regex to solve those. And that is way above my (current) level.
Thanks for thr link!

Searching for "zzzzzzz" didn't work either ...

It became quite a list (couple of them I had completely forgotten about). I skipped the ones that were too specific (custom made)

Maybe ShareX?
Open source, free, portable.
I haven't seen an option for horizontal scrolling support, but wouldn't be surprised if it is there somewhere, hidden in the plethora of options. It does support vertical scrolling, though.

(Bit late to the party, but I seem to have overlooked this all the time)

@NotNull Congratulations for having the red font colour. Happy for you. :D
Maybe now you are authorised to send private messages? :lol:

Thanks for letting me know that Screenshot Captor has this feature.
I tested it a little, but it seems I need to find more time to learn this.
Thank you.

It came as a surprise for me too (I thought I accidentally took the red pill :))
I just looked and indeed I can see your e-mail address. Not that I needed that, as I already found out that you are on the AutoHotkey forum too (or is there someone else called Stamimail?)

Agreed, It's not completely straightforward. I tested it too before posting the suggestion and it took me a while to stitch together all screenparts to one 'panorama picture'.
But not mentioning it was not an option..

Yes, that's me in AutoHotkey Forum.
and it took me a while to stitch together all screenparts to one 'panorama picture'.
In past, my task was to capture a part of a map. Something similiar to how Google Maps works.
I think it will be difficult to capture from Google Maps, but it will be interesting to know how successful it is with regular out-of-screen images.
