    Hi,
    When you do a replace operation, you need to provide a value that you are searching for, a value that you want to replace it with. Then you need to press the search button. When the searched for phrase is found, you can press the replace button, or the all button if you want to replace that instance or all instances. If you don’t want to replace the current instance, you can press the search button again and ME will look for the next instance, without making the replacement.
    Hope this helps,
    Clay

    Hi Reid,
    Must admit PCRE is not my strong point. If you have not already, try declaring a string with the first part, then a second string with the second part, then combing the two strings into a 3rd that will be used in the search.

    Hi Reid,
    Couple questions, what type of regex are you using? Do you get the same results with S_And_R base function? Can you provide an example of the search string (and the actual text you are looking for)?

    Thanks,
    Clay

    Hi All,
    Below it a link to Reid Sweatman’s excellent article on using the builtin CMac debug facility. I will also place a link in its own post.

    Hi Reid,
    Hate to say it, but this “forum” has no way to attach content. The best I can do is convert to PDF and post on one of my servers, then place a link here. I do appreciate the effort you have made to find the old files.

    Hi,
    We lost a lot of content when the old web site, wiki, etc was replaced.

    There was some debugging stuff setup by the old developers, its not well documented but you can look over the CMac code in dbg.s.

    Other than that it looks like leaving a trail of breadcrumbs ( Make_Message) is the best option.

    If part of the problem might be indicated by the values of the global variables this old piece of code of mine might help:
    //****************************************************************//
    //*** Utility Macro GlobVar debug ***//
    //****************************************************************//
    int GlobVar ( ) trans
    {
    /***list the global vars and their values to a empty file(that you opened)***/
    int retval;
    str gname =first_global(retval);
    do {
    if ( retval == 1) {
    text(gname + ” = ” +str(global_int(gname)) ) ;
    eol;
    cr;
    }
    else {
    text(gname + ” = ” +global_str(gname)) ;
    cr;
    }
    gname = next_global(retval);
    } while (gname != ” );

    }

    in reply to: ME2K8 Install Problems #25135

    Hi Reid,
    I’ll start with what I have for doing an network install:
    For the network installation, first step is to install onto the server. You will need to create a directory on the server, that Multi-Edit (ME) will reside in. You will need read, write and execute permissions to that directory. The clients (ME users) will need read and execute permissions to this directory.

    Run the ME install program from the server or from a remote consol that can access the server’s directory. You will need Administrator privileges on the server. After the licence agreement dialog you will get a dialog asking for the serial number and release code. Underneath those is a place to enter the path to the directory on the server that you created for ME to reside in. The installation will skip over many of the items that would be asked for a standalone install, you will be prompted for those when you do the client installs.

    When you have completed the install on the server, you can install the client copies.

    Make sure no copy of Multi-Edit is running on the server or client machine.

    Then create a directory (for user config info) on the client machine that the user has full rights (read, write, execute) to, usually under the Documents and Settings directory. Setup an environment variable, on the client machine named ME110_CFG_DIR that contains that directory path. Then from the client machine, execute the file Net2008Setup.exe that is located in the directory you created on the server. During this installation the user will be prompted for their personal configuration options that will be stored on the client machine.

    As to your questions
    1,2) I think the adding of .04 was a change made to the regular install to deal with multiple version changes, and has self propagated to the network install, where you can specify the directory, unlike the stand-alone install. For the stand-alone install the usual path is:
    Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Multi Edit Software\Multi-Edit\11\Config.04 Substitute your user name for USER
    If for the network client install, if you did not provide a value for ME110_CFG_DIR, I think the above path would be the default.
    3)Just coping the old config files is problematic, especially when the install is a different version, I would suggest using Tools-Config-Import/Export if there are settings you want to keep from an old install.
    4) Are you saying that Net2008Setup.exe is not in the server directory?
    5) Those files, source and mac are not placed in the client config directory until you modify/compile them. At that point they are copied from the install config directory, to the user’s directory, same with template files. When running, and you go to use a (template for instance) ME first looks in the user’s config directory, then if a version of the file is not found, it will look in the installed directory to get the original. Because of OS changes, the user is not allowed to write to the install directory after installation. That is why copies of files are placed in the user’s config directory if they will be modified (like if you change a template).

    Hope this helps,
    Clay

    Charles,
    Did you try changing the Tools-Customize-Spelling, Valid word characters to
    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_’!
    When I did this the whole name was underlined and I was able to right click and select Open to open the link in my browser. I then removed the ! and ME went back to the behavior where the underline stops before the ! character. Like I said the change requires a restart.

    Ok,
    Took some looking (and experimenting) but I found it. Don’t know what else this may effect but if you go to Tools-Customize-Spelling, then in the Valid word characters add !, then restart ME.

    Hi Charles,
    Now I understand. This is probably because ! is part of the word delimits. Go to Tools-Customize-Editing and try removing the ! from the delimit list.

    Thanks,

    Hi Charles,
    Are you referring to adding a link using weblair? I just tried adding links to local and remote pages with the ! character and it placed them without an issue.
    Can you elaborate what the issue is?
