RFE: Paste stem:<list>

Post by therube »

RFE: Paste stem:<list>

Or is there a method to do so already?

so (a Paste of):
red.jpg
blue.txt

gives:
red|blue


How would you do that with a keyboard?
Ctrl+Shift+INS? That would be mighty awkward?
Alt+INS would work.

Currently, I don't have an option to do this.



The next alpha update will have a bookmark option to do this.
For example:

/replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(.*)\.[^\.]*$","$1|">,"|">>

(replaces each line with the stem + | and trims the final |)



I will also consider a stemfilelist1: search option.
I will also consider a stem:remove-extension:<red.jpg|blue.txt> search option.

Everything 1.5.0.1360a fixes an issue with regexreplace not working with multiple lines.

To create a bookmark to paste the stems of filenames from the clipboard:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Bookmarks menu, click Add to bookmarks.
  • Change the Name to: Paste Stem
  • Change the Search to:

    Code: Select all

    /replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(?:.*\\)?(?:([^\\\r\n]*)\.[^\\\r\n\.]*|([^\\\r\n\.]*))\r?$","$1$2|">,"|">>
    
  • Optionally set a keyboard shortcut.
  • Click OK.


edit: old code:

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem: <<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(.*)\.[^\.]*$","$1|">,"|">>
(incorrectly matches newlines with [^\.])



I'm still working on adding stemfilelist1:

Thank you testing tuska,

Why add a space after stem:?

The intention here was to search for stems matching the stems from the full name from the clipboard.



I'm seeing the expected results my end: aaa.docx and bbb.docx are found.
Do you have any search options enabled under the Search menu?



The regex could be improved because [^\.] matches newlines...

Please try the following bookmark search:

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(?:.*\\)?(?:([^\\\r\n]*)\.[^\\\r\n\.]*|([^\\\r\n\.]*))\r?$","$1$2|">,"|">>
edit: old code:

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(?:.*\\)?([^\\\n]*)\.[^\\\.\n]*$","$1|">,"|">>
(doesn't work for filenames without an extension)

I get no result without a space after stem:.
Bookmark: "Search: Custom"

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(.*)\.[^\.]*$","$1|">,"|">>
Example: stem:<C:\totalcmd\wincmd|C:\totalcmd\wincmd_Buttonbar>

The following is interesting for me: CRLF
If I copy the result (with space after stem:) from the Everything search box into the Text editor...
(EmEditor Pro v23.0.1 (64-bit) - No Wrap (Ctrl+1))

Code: Select all

stem: <C:\totalcmd\wincmd|  *)
C:\totalcmd\wincmd_Buttonbar>
*) then the following character is inserted here after '|':
U+000D U+000A
UTF-16LE: 0x000D 0x000A
CARRIAGE RETURN (CR); LINE FEED (LF)
Unicode Script: Zyyy (Common): Zyyy (Common)
Unicode General Category: Cc (Control): Cc (Control)

Normally, after a copy action, each content of the Everything search line is transferred 1:1 to the text editor, i.e. in one line.

I tested your suggestions again.
(I think there must have been an additional problem with the clipboard in a previous test).

This code works (in the active path) because it has a space after stem:
With this code, only the file "üöäÜÖÄߧ&.txt" is displayed, but not the files "aaa.docx", "bbb.docx" -> Total path >259 characters.
Workaround: After executing the bookmark (CODE below!...), set the path BEFORE the code: Path\ stem:<aaa|bbb|üöäÜÖÖߧ&>

This code works (in all paths) for me with and without a space after stem:
With this code, the files "aaa.docx", "bbb.docx" and "üöäÜÖÄߧ&.txt" are also displayed -> Total path >259 characters.

This code - bookmark: "Paste Stem" only works (in the active path) for me with a space after stem: - as already mentioned above:
(The following code for the bookmark differs slightly from the code (also for a bookmark) at the beginning of this post).

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem: <<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(.*)\.[^\.]*$","$1|">,"|">>

Thank you for testing the regexreplace tuska,

I found the following to work rather well:

Code: Select all

/replace-sel stem:<<trim:<regexreplace:clipboard:,"(?m)^(?:.*\\)?(?:([^\\\r\n]*)\.[^\\\r\n\.]*|([^\\\r\n\.]*))\r?$","$1$2|">,"|">>
This one will strip the starting path part, remove the extension if it exists and do nothing if the text is already a stem.
It was a pain to match this, capture it and skip the trailing \r

(?m) = multiline mode
^ = start of line
(?:.*\\)? = don't capture and skip till the last \ (if it exists)
(?: ... ) = don't capture and specify the OR group
([^\\\r\n]*) = capture stem part to $1
\.[^\\\r\n\.]* = match extension
| = OR
([^\\\r\n\.]*) = capture text that is already a stem to $2
\r?$ = match \r (if it exists) and match the end of the line

stemfilename1: will make this soo much easier..
