logparser – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/31

Thanks to Sebastian Gingter for pointing me at Logparser:

Logparser […] powerful, versatile tool that provides universal query access to text-based data such as log files, XML files and CSV files, as well as key data sources on the Windows operating system such as the Event Log, the Registry, the file system, and Active Directory. The results of the input query can be custom-formatted in text based output, or they can be persisted to more specialty targets like SQL, SYSLOG, or a chart.

Common use:

$ logparser [options] [SQL expression]

Delphi: turn off column or line block selection mode – via: Default IDE Shortcut Keys; Delphi Programming

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/30

The Default IDE Shortcut Keys – Delphi Programming was a good starting point to find out how to disable column or line blocks.

Since the table there is incomplete (even the Embarcadero documentation is wrong as some shortcuts can turn on and off a mode), here are the relevant shortcuts keys:

Ctrl + O + C Turns on/off blockcolumn selection mode Delphi 5 and up
Ctrl + O + K Turns on/off block selection mode Delphi 5 and up
Ctrl + O + L Selects current line (and turns off block selection mode) Delphi 5 and up

Repeating the same expression multiple in RegEx search, and replace it only one time – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/29

I’m really really glad that Lucas Trzesniewski has answered this:

While most regex flavours have roughly a similar syntax for the basic features, there is not a clear standard as to the syntax of the replacement strings. Some tools use \1 for referencing strings, others use $1 and so on.

As you use Notepad++, you should know it uses the boost library for its regex implementation, and it uses the Boost-Extended format string for the replacement pattern.

In particular, the placeholder for the nth capture group is $n.

And my comment:

Thanks a lot for that. I found a bit more information about back references and capture groups in various libraries on regular-expressions.info/replacebackref.html.

As of Visual Studio 2012, the option “Find Shelveset” is hard to find – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/28

Shelving work into a shelveset is easy in Visual Studio. Until Visual Studio 2010 it was easy to find the shelveset.

As of Visual Studio 2012 this is much more difficult. To get the shelveset back in Visual Studio 2012 and up:

  1. Go to the “Team Explorer” pane
  2. Click the “Home” icon
  3. Choose “Pending Changes”
  4. Click the topmost “Actions” item
  5. In the pop-up menu, click “Find Shelvesets”
  6. Type a search phrase
