Character position changing

Postby rala72 » Thu Jan 07, 2016 6:37 pm

I used Joe before:

I liked it, but now I would have to pay for every workplace...

I have for example a files called: "Author - Year - Title"
Author and Year has the same length (same author, but maybe different years).

If I enter the pattern: "[17-] [1-15]"
I will get the output "Title - Author - Year"

I mean the numbers are the character positions and [n-] means from this to end.

In Joe everything is based on the [] brackets.
So everything can be merged and "[17-] [1-15] [RDATE]" would add the reverse date.

"Buld Rename Utility" has a lot more features and is more detailed. AND HAS REGEX! :D

But I really wish the character - position - reordering featcher :D

In version 3, BRU will support JavaScript.
So you will use:
newName = name.substr(17) + name.substr(1,15) + object("modified").toString();

We are about to release version 3.
