Subject: Re: Duplifind Script please

Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2008 17:31:05 +0100

Hi,

The best thing I can do is a script that would allow you to choose which of the "fields" to include in the comparison. I would split each line into fields, based on the commas and colons. Then you could for example remove the "seconds field". Would that be ok?

I would like to set a switch to choose whether one or, up to 8, characters are different. In this case, I consider both these lines as duplicates even thought there are a few differences. I would set the switch to four characters and would want Dupli Find to consider any lines with four different characters in the same position to be considered a duplicate so I can select and delete the duplicates... I hope that is clear :)
