What to do with JText2Sgfs
I coded this to use it with Forte's news- and email-reader "Agent". Perhaps it works with other reader as well. Perhaps it's not necessary with other reader at all.
The problem was that there always come quite some emails with game-records in my "Go-Server"-Folder together. And I don't like to save all of them by hand, one by one, since Agent doesn't work another way. So I decided to write this little program.
Now I can select all the emails with games from a go-server and save this bunch with "Files" -> "Save Messages As" in a single text-file. JText2Sgfs now extracts the sgf-files from that text-file and saves it under the name given by sgf's GN-tag. If a file of that name already exists a digit is appended.
- You do have to have JAVA installed on the system on which this program should run.
If this is not the case get JAVA from SUN's site.
- Furthermore you have to agree to the terms of the GNU General
Public License under which this program is distributed.
This implies that it is free software ( not like free beer but free speech ) and that it comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
- This program should run under every standart OS for which a JavaVirtualMachine is available. (Well at least
it works under Windows and Linux.)
I'd like to hear from OSes on which it wouldn't work (except embedded systems ;-)).
