Ascii files translator

read("A")write("B") format("LA")format("LB")

read("A")write("B") var("word1")var("word2")
Translates the ascii file A in file B by replacing all occurrences of "word1" with "word2"

Note: His is a translation of words delimited by an alphabetic character left and right with an alphanumeric character.
If LA contains word mota and if LB contents word motb
       )mota is translated into )motb
       mota(x) is translated into motb(x)
       xmota is not translated
string: all sub strings A will be translated.
If A is:

if LA is:

and if LB is:

read write dim

read("nnn")write dim(n)
splits file nnn in files nnn_1, nnn_2, ... size n octets, d = 100000000 (100 Mo) default.

See read write inv to gather those files into original file.
edit: edits teh files name.

Convertisseur de fichiers de fonctions

read("nnn.func")write("nnn.func")format("V_fra")format("V") format("koma_fra.htm")format("komb_fra.h") format("koma.htm")format("komb.h")
Translates functions file nnn.func written in the language specified by the file V_fra into the functions file nnn.func written in the language specified by the file V.
Any even number 2 * n files VAi et VBi can be specified, the first n vocabularies describing a language and the last n vocabularies describing another language.
format("koma_fra.htm")format("komb_fra.h") format("koma.htm")format("komb.h"): 2 files vocabularies are specified (for the interpreter and anyflo).

Fichiers html

A.htm is an html file with special characters, it will be written by encoding the characters in the format in html file B.htm.
1) This command is not an html code generator but simply treats the special characters (such as French accents) in a file already coded html.
2) Html expressions already established such as <...> and &...; are not coded, the characters < & are not no more. When a tag is not closed in the same line, it is automatically completed and a WARNING is generated. It is therefore essential to encode the characters & (in &amp;) and < (in &lt;).
3) Html codes are in code_htm and are read to launch anyflo (this file can be changed with the launch option htm).
4) The most common errors are:
       Do not code < is taken for a start tag
       Do not code & is taken for a start tag
       Write &nbsp instead of &nbsp; causing a bad coding any more.
debug: The file env/COMPTE_RENDU is written as:
       read file name -> write file name
       line number: error code html
       line where the error occurred
debug("nnn"): the errors file is nnn instead of nnn default env/COMPTE_RENDU.
directory("ddd"): search for files in the folder ddd.
Converts all files *.htm of folder dos back themselves.

read write inclu

read("dir1/")write("dir2/ext")inclu("ccc") Cryptes the file dir1/ in file dir2/ according to the code ccc.
read("dir2/")write("dir1")inclu("ccc") Uncryptes file dir2/ in file dir1/ when has been crypted by the preceding formula.
read("dir1/fic.c")write("dir2/ext")inclu("CODE") Cryptes the file dir1/fic.c in file dir2/fic.c.ext according the code CODE.
read("dir2/fic.c.ext")write("dir1")inclu("CODE") Uncryptes this file.
