Example 14: Text Alignment and Numbering

Here we give three examples on how to tabulate listing. Before we begin, keep in mind that the complexity of tabulation extends far beyond the scope of TextMaestro. However, the following examples will convince you that TextMaestro can be a convenient tool when it comes to tabulating text.

 

Example 14.a: Align and Number a listing

Example 14.b: Make 2-column table

Example 14.c: Make multi-column table

 

 

 

Example 14.a: Align and Number a listing:         Top

Suppose here is the input text:

Input text:

ae_comp.cpp, ae_comp.h, ae_sym.cpp, ae_sym.h, annot.cpp, annot.h, build_info.h, bundle.cpp, bundle.h, bundle_ctrl.cpp, bundle_ctrl.h, bundle_info.cpp, bundle_info.h, char.cpp, check.cpp, check.h, component.h, const_style.h, data_alloc.cpp, data_alloc.h, data_alloc2.cpp, debug_ix.cpp, debug_ix.h, dhash_input.cpp, dhash_input.h, diagnostic.cpp, diagnostic.h, directive.cpp, directive.h, dirs_builder.cpp, dirs_builder.h, dirs_hash.h, dirs_hash_size.h, dirs_hash_tbl.cpp, dirs_info.cpp, dirs_info.h, dirs_info_entry.h, dirs_parse.cpp, dirs_parse.h, dyn_hash.cpp, dyn_hash.h, emdb_info.cpp, emdb_info.h, enc_mac.h, encode.h, encode1.cpp, encode2.cpp, encode3.cpp, endianess.h, exception.h, file.cpp, file.h, general.h, glob_diagnostic.cpp, glob_diagnostic.h, hash.h, hazlib_ix.cpp, hazlib_ix.h, ias_external.h, ident_hash.cpp, ident_hash.h, identifier.h, iel_env.h, ilp_model.h, input.cpp, input.h, inst.cpp, inst.h, inst_alias.cpp, inst_alias.h, inst_dir_parse.h, inst_parse.cpp, inst_parse.h, keywords.cpp, keywords.h, label.cpp, label.h, lex.h, lex_conv.cpp, lex_conv.h, lex_sm.cpp, lex_sm.h, lex_token.cpp, lex_token.h, list_chunks.h, low_lex.cpp, low_lex.h, lrst.cpp, lrst.h, main.cpp, mem_alloc.cpp, mem_alloc.h, mnem_hash.h, mnem_hash_tbl.cpp, mnemonics.h, mofl_err.cpp, mofl_err.h, msg_buf.cpp, msg_buf.h, msg_info.h

Open TextMaestro, and click on Text Conversion tool as shown below:

This will open Attributes window and Interactive Window side by side. Enter the following information in those boxes:

 

 

Find:

,

Replace:

<line-brk>

I.e., replace ", " by a line-break to make a listing from above wrapped text.

 

Click on Convert button to obtain the following:

 

Transfer text from Output window to Input window by clicking on Transfer text button.

Place Find, Replace and Input text as shown below.

Here we will execute this macro on the current input text:

Find:

*

Replace:

<i=1>.<A=5> * <a=35?.>10

where wild-card is turned on (see left).

See conversion rules, especially conversion qualifiers for details.

 

Hit Convert button.

We would like to make a table from this listing so that each odd line is placed at first column and even line at second column, and hopefully in a sorted and numbered fashion.

 

Here is the Attribute window:

 

Place this macro on Find and Replace area:

Find:

*

*

Replace:

<*1>|<*2>

 

Place the listing onto Input window.

Hit Convert button.

See conversion rules, especially wild card usage for details. In summary, a stand-alone wild-card denotes each line (excluding line-break). Thus, this macro grabs two lines at a time and places them side by side, separating them by "|".

 

Now transfer text from Output window to Input window by clicking on Transfer text button. To sort the text seen on Input window, right click on it and follow the steps shown below:

This will sort the input text and the result is shown above.

 

Transfer text from Output window to Input window one more time by clicking on Transfer text button, and use following macro in Find and Replace boxes.

Find:

*|*

Replace:

<i=1>.<A=5> <*1> <a=35><*2>

 

Hit Convert button. Here is the output:

 

Now you have sorted and numbered tabulated listing of the free-ware web-sites where we submitted TextMaestro for patient users like you.

 

 

Example 14.c: Make multi-column table         Top

In Example 14.b (above), we made two columns. Below we'll make a four column table, where each item is listed side by side.

Here is the macro:

Find:

*

*

*

*

Replace:

<i=1?4>.<A=5> * <i=2?4>.<A=30> * <i=3?4>.<A=55> * <i=4?4>.<A=80> *
