As a good number of us are using Notepad++ for day to day operations (including rules and TI writing ), I wanted to highlight that Notepad++ has a Python script plugin: http://npppythonscript.sourceforge.net/download.shtml. You can also install it from the "Plugins manager".
This allows us to, for example, count all non-empty lines in all opened files (polish the code a bit):
Happy coding !
Code: Select all
from Npp import * import re import ntpath all_files_line_count = 0 s = "The total line count of all open files is:" + "\r\n" tuple_list = notepad.getFiles() for tuple in tuple_list: filename = tuple if filename == "new 0": continue notepad.activateFile(filename) # parse the active editor's text this_files_line_count = 0 Lines = re.split('\r\n|\r|\n|', editor.getText()) for line in Lines: line = line[0:].strip() if line != "": this_files_line_count += 1 all_files_line_count += this_files_line_count s = s + "\r\n" + ntpath.basename(filename) + "\t\t\t" + str(this_files_line_count) notepad.messageBox(s + "\r\n\r\n" + "Total:" + "\t\t\t" + str(all_files_line_count), "", MESSAGEBOXFLAGS.OK)
