fitr is a small program which emulates the functionality of Installer's "startup" command, but works on any text file, and can use something other than a semicolon to mark the start and end of fitr-added data for an application. It is fully compatible with Installer's user-startup modifications, so any application commands added to user-startup can be modified with fitr and vice-versa. btw, "fitr" stands for "For Installer Text Replacement", it has nothing to do with ending fasting, although a point could be made involving Installer's textfile and startup commands and starvation. (I have made a mental note to check Google before naming software next time) DISTRIBUTION ============ fitr can be freely distributed with installation scripts, provided the following or similar text is included in the accompanying documentation: "The install script uses fitr by Chris Young, see http://www.unsatisfactorysoftware.co.uk/fitr" USAGE ===== Command-line usage ================== Template: FILE/A,APPNAME,NEWTEXT,BUFSIZE/K/N,COM=COMMENT/K,CHECK/S,PRINT/S, LIST/S,TOP/S FILE = File to modify APPNAME = Application name - case sensitive (pick something unique!) NEWTEXT = File containing text to add (if not specified, section will be deleted from the file)  BUFSIZE = Text buffer size, default 1K.  COMMENT = Text to place in front of the BEGIN/END markers, default ";" CHECK = If specified, fitr will check for a section for that app and set RC 5 (WARN) if it is found, 0 otherwise. PRINT = Displays the text section in FILE for APPNAME LIST = Prints a list of applications that have sections in FILE TOP = If the section does not exist, add it to the top of the file (default is to add new sections to the end) LIST cannot be specified with any other switches. If APPNAME is not provided, fitr will default to LIST mode. Examples 1> fitr s:user-startup will print a list of the applications that have added sections to user-startup. 1> fitr s:user-startup MUI PRINT will print the text section for MUI from s:user-startup 1> fitr s:user-startup MyApp will DELETE the section for MyApp. Be careful with this! 1> fitr s:startup-sequence NewSetPatch startup.txt TOP will replace NewSetPatch section in s:startup-sequence with the contents of startup.txt. If it doesn't exist, startup.txt will be added to the TOP of the file. 1> fitr ram:logfiles usblog t:usb.log COM="#" will add the contents of t:usb.log to ram:logfiles, between the markers #BEGIN usblog and #END usblog (ram:logfiles will be created if it doesn't exist) Suggested Installer usage ========================= Use the p_fitr procedure in the fitr-test script, called as follows: (p_fitr "filename" "text to add" "comment marker" "additional switches") See fitr-test for more examples, including how to use the CHECK option from Installer scripts. VERY IMPORTANT! ===============  The file being modified MUST BE TEXT, BINARY FILES WILL PROBABLY BE IRREPAIRABLY DAMAGED  FITR MAY TRUNCATE LINES LONGER THAN BUFSIZE  If a section has no END comment, replacing that section WILL REPLACE THE REST OF THE FILE HISTORY ======= 1.3 18.08.2009 * Added TOP 1.2 06.05.2009 * Added CHECK, PRINT, LIST and ability to delete sections * Fixed some problems with the Installer procedure (most notably with spaces in filenames etc) ---- Please note the primary download location for my software is Aminet (http://www.aminet.net).
