Program name used to control logic flow

Posted 30 July 2012 - 09:39 AM

I was getting criticism on other forums about too many prompts and knowledge required to run my Super app.

Now I have one called Catmydrive.exe that does mpg catalog and another called catmydrivejpg.exe to do jpg etc. This list will only get larger. Much larger. I find it extremely useful for my own purposes. Ie displaying debug lines.. By simply changing the build name, I can jam and jam the changes. Trial and error gets it done.

Ummm this spaghetti code is turning gourmet. The very best... SSDS

The meatball option would add some spice.

http://www.telusplan...edan/search.exe The latest version from yesterday.

Put this out on a usb stick and name it as datamix.exe
Create a text file called datamix.txt
That has 10 text lines that will display in 48 point font
then the 2 lines for the video display controls
ie
photo my video of the sparrow hawk flying into window 5 seconds long
xxx.e:\hawkvideo.mpg
Then another group of 10 lines

This is a new feature without much testing.

Try the catmydrive.exe on the usb stick after you have loaded some mpgs

When a video is playing hitting enter enter causes it to switch to slow motion and an automatic replay of that file.

Can you make a version that is compatible with external hard drives as well as a usb stick?

Rename a copy to random.exe and it plays random
Rename a copy to randomseg.exe and it plays random video segments
Rename a copy to sequential.exe and it plays sequential

It should work from an external drive just like a USB stick.

I thought I was banned here because I was having trouble logging in. So I went away...
