Program name: ClipLog and ClipFind
Author: Vernon Marsden
CLipLog is a simple windows program
that watches the Windows ClipBoard.
Any 'COPY text' action will trigger ClipLog,
to LOG the 'CopiedText' into a disk file (yyyymmdd.txt).
ClipLog also time_stamps each 'CopiedText' entry,
and ceates a new 'yyyymmdd.txt' file for each day.
ClipLog is portable freeware, no changes are made
to your computer. Simply create a new Folder,
perhaps named "C:\CLipLog". And copy the ClipLog.zip
file into it. UnZip the file.
Now there should be 5 files in the CLipLog Folder, ClipLog.zip, ClipLog.exe, ClipLog.bas(HotBasic sourceCode), ClipLog.ico, ClipFInd.exe, ClipFind_Help.txt .
Newly created Log files will also reside in this same Folder.
ClipLog has five buttons,
1) [Send ClipLogWindow to TaskTray] makes ClipLog
run invisible, except for a visible Icon in the TaskTray.
You can make ClipLog visible again, by doubleClicking
on its TaskTray Icon.
2) [FIND] startup the ClipLog’s Search Program, ClipFind.
3) [HELP] Dislpays ClipLog/ClipFind Help DOCs in Browser.
4) [EXIT] Exits program.
5) [SHOW Files FOLDER] This brings up winExplorer showing
Your ClipLog FOLDER.
You might want to created a CLipLog.lnk (shortcut).
And put it into your StartUp Folder. Perhaps here:
"C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup".
Then ClipLog will be started automatically, at each system startup.
Finds text in all [.txt , .bas , .html] files in current or selected directory. The default search directory is where ClipFind.exe and ClipLog.exe are located.
==Search starts with "Enter" key in search text box or with "Find It" button.
==Keyboard arrows navigate search results; "Space" selects item and "Enter" displays item.
==Result items can be selected with key or mouse doubleclick and displayed.
Your browser is launched to display .html result files.
=="Escape" exits result display or exits program.
=="Tab" switches focus between search text box and search results list.
Search text examples:
" mod " finds fewer hits than "mod".
" hex" finds fewer hits than "hex".
How I use ClipLog/Find:
Its easy to find URLs, by searching for “http or www”. For other things, like Quotes, I imbed the word “quote” in the COPY command, or make a separate, immediate COPY with just the word “quote”.
I use the same method for other types of info, such as “appt for appointment”, “paid”, "passw", “phone”, “todoDone”, “todoOpen”, "RegKey", “wishlist”, .
This way ClipLog is also a Personal information manager (PIM).
Hope this helps someone, Happy Trails!...Vernon
