BULK RENAME UTILITY OPERATIONS MANUAL - VOLUME II (REVISED) - EXPERT'S CORNER - COLOR FRIENDLY

by Tim Mongeon, USA

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Second Book in the Series is now available. (First book here).

A Unique All-Inclusive volume that will teach you the power of the BRU Program.
There are sections for BRU, JavaScript, with a heavy emphasis on an alternative method of learning Regular Expressions, all based on the Experts of the BRU Forums - the good, the bad, and the down-right ugly.

The Navigation system includes Table of Contents, Full Bookmarks and full hyperlinked index, and of course, your PDF Reader's Search facility.

There are two editions - one is included for people who may have trouble with color and high contrast, and is labeled as, 'a11y color friendly'.

Newly released revised editions address much of the errata and other content errors.

Enjoy.

A few Notes

1. There will be typos. Count on it. This was a massive project and if I had three more months maybe I would have caught more of them - maybe not.
I had been over this document many times - too numerous to tell you. Each time through I would find a few more. But after a while I felt like that woman in Andromeda Strain
where the solution was before her, but her Epilepsy prevented her from seeing it.

An example... page 125, in the analysis of Example #1, step #2 should obviously be Capture Group 1 = 26, not Capture Group 2. This is not only common sense if you read
through the analysis but for every example, I provide multiple sources of information that allow you to discern the truth from fiction. If you look at the sample run photo for
example #1 on page 124, it clearly shows '26' as the value for Capture Group 1. Same for 'Where... Capture Group 1 = 26' appearing on page 125. So if something doesn't
look right, look at the other information presented and you will probably find it is a minor typo.

2. The book requires a reader that can reliably render the graphics. If you are using a reader of lesser quality, for example, in the JavaScript sections, you will notice white lines
that appear in the colored blocks of text. Readers I recommend are:

Foxit Reader -https://www.techspot.com/downloads/2713-foxit-reader.html
Downloads CLEAN version of Foxit without added adware

Javelin Reader-https://www.drumlinsecurity.com/javelindownloads.html

Nitro Pdf Reader-https://download.cnet.com/Nitro-PDF-Reader-64-bit/3000-10743_4-75206289.html

Adobe Acrobat Reader 2020 Classic -ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/
(on my system Adobe is slow in paging)


Readers not recommended:

Errata

Page 106, page 929


'So, question. If the first Alternate matched, why would it end up selecting the Third Alternate, if the RegEx Engine goes with First come, first served?

The simple explanation is that it didn't match - a least not enough to satisfy the match.



Missing completed sentence.

Will be fixed in next revision.

I'm adding my comment here because it seems to be the location for comments relating to the updates being put into Vol II of the manual.

I made my original comment in the General Comments of the primary Board Index because I was getting used to the layout of the whole FORUM and didn't know of this location yet.

It is in a post called: Ver 3.4.1.0 Including NETWORK access. Where is it? The most important content is in my last post of that entry title.

I was searching for the new NETWORK functionality that was just added to the newest version of the program. I wanted to know where it was and how to use it. I will not add the text here and duplicate it, but I will say the information should be added to the manual.
