comment How can I sort the lines in a text file, by the length of each line, in Notepad++?
@Bob is correct, if you have lines of a given length, such as 33 characters, that have a particular order to them, that will not be reflected in the results. We can add the line numbers with Alt+C prior to step 1 (including leading 0s to ensure that lengths remain equal). Then, when cleaning up in step 4, use ^ *\d{5} or whatever number of digits were used for the line numbers.

@Bob: no good. The lowercase thing is even mentioned in the release notes for the SQL in N++ plug-in.

This is actually a great solution, if only SQL in N++ didn't mangle the data output. I just tested out your solution, and I added delimiters to the end of all lines with a quick regex replace, but the data output converts everything to lowercase, and replaced my dashes with question marks.

Ooh, hey, @Kaivosukeltaja, I updated my script before I saw your comment and acceptance. The updated script has a GUI and a few improvements (especially the "SendMode InputThenPlay"). I have a line in the format of a:: for every key I want to remap. It may be as simple as adding a couple lines with the additional keys on your keyboard.

Are you looking for someone to write the AutoHotKey script for you?

This lets the user input one line at a time, which is part-way there. You could do basically the same script, but StringSplit by character (just don't specify a delimiter). I was afraid that might be an extreme number of variables, but it might be fine too. Also, I'm imagining that he wants newlines added as he types.

Just to be clear, you want to have to mash the keyboard, right? You don't just want the chunks of text to instantly appear?

comment How to have a date that updates that is not today's in excel
As far as I can think of off the top of my head, you'd need to use the following to get one month ago: =DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()-1),DAY(TODAY()))

=today()-30 is not a month ago, it is 30 days ago.

comment How to store complete path using 7z on linux
Is this a Linux-specific limitation? 7Zip in Windows stores my full path, which can be used by extracting with the x command instead of the e command.

comment How to make the key combination “win” + “.” send the instruction to media_next?
I've become a big fan of AutoHotKey. I started with a few hotstrings for phrases and some hotkey shortcuts, but have now added some more advanced features (plain-text paste, Google highlighted text) and am attempting to grasp some even more complex things like parsing text and sizing/placing windows.

So, it looks like the main thing was using #. instead of Win + .

Whoa! I just checked this out and it blew me away. It looks like any named key can be handled this way. I'm going to have to experiment some more...

Well, media_next isn't a command on its own, but Send {media_next} is. I do agree with @darthbith that questioners should generally show that they have tried to solve the question themselves, and explain what they've done.
