This program had five revisions as outlined within the source code. To access settings within this program, use the "F2" key. Documentation may be accessed via the "F1" key (with future plans cut).</p> <p>If anyone wishes to comment or vote this recipe down, please provide your insight into the fault(s) of the program and provide a suggestion as to what solution you would implement to fix the problems.</p> File Share Messenger 1.0 (Python) 2011-04-06T00:03:20-07:00Stephen Chappellhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2608421/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577637-file-share-messenger-10/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577637 by <a href="/recipes/users/2608421/">Stephen Chappell</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/file_io/">file_io</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/file_share/">file_share</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/gui/">gui</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/messenger/">messenger</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/network/">network</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/workaround/">workaround</a>). </p> <p>File I/O has many potential uses, and in the case of network file shares, messaging can be conducted by creating files in a directory and scanning for new files to find new messages. In the case where there are restrictions within a network that prevent opening server sockets or creating and using client sockets, the technique in this recipe may be used with file shares instead. The program is simple and was written in about fifty minutes, so there are a great deal of enhancements that could be made to the recipe and its capabilities. Hopefully, this will provide inspiration for other program writers.</p> <p>If you have any comments or wish to down-vote this recipe, please provide your insight as to what could be improved upon and how you would go about fixing any problems that you might find.</p> FSM 2.5 Reader (Python) 2011-04-06T03:02:57-07:00Stephen Chappellhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2608421/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577639-fsm-25-reader/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577639 by <a href="/recipes/users/2608421/">Stephen Chappell</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/commandline/">commandline</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/file_io/">file_io</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/file_share/">file_share</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/messenger/">messenger</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/network/">network</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/workaround/">workaround</a>). </p> <p>For those who would want to search the message logs produced by <a href="http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577638/">recipe 577638</a>, this program provides a command-line solution to searching messages according to their authors. If this program is placed in the message directory, the program may be executed on the command-line with the author's name as an argument. If and when the program is executed without an argument, usage information is shown on the screen before exiting. If an author was not found, the author's name is printed stating that nothing could be found. If a matching file was found, all timestamps and messages will be displayed that could be decoded correctly.</p> <p>If there are any recommendation for this recipe or if anyone wishes to down-vote this recipe, please provide corrective criticism showing the the program's faults and give suggestions on how you would fix any problems that it might have.</p>
