This rule uses Pascal/Delphi programming syntax and conventions. ReNamer comes some preloaded scripts. Let us see how to use them, and later see how to add a new script.
Using a script
A list of scripts appears.
- All available scripts are listed above the line. Click on any script to load it into the Configuration pane.
- Edit the script if required
- Press button to add the script to the rule stack.
- Repeat steps 1-4 to add more script-based rules.
Borrowing scripts from forum
Even if you do not know how to write a script, you can easily use scripts written by others.
First, visit the User Forum and search for a suitable script. The Forum already has a large number of such scripts. Some of these scripts have embedded comments about how to customize the script.
If you cannot find a suitable script, you can request other users to write a script for you.
Once you find such a script, follow these simple steps:
Writing your own scripts
To write your own scripts, you must have knowledge of Pascal script.
Learning Pascal script is easy. Refer to the Pascal Script Manual.
We will assume here that you already know how to write pascal scripts. The step-by-step procedure is as follows:
- Click in the Configuration pane and enter the script directly. (You can also copy it from anywhere and paste it into the pane by pressing CTRL+V. Or right-click in the pane and select the Paste option from the context menu.)
- Compile the script by pressing the [[Image:]] button located below the Configuration pane.
- If an error message comes up, troubleshoot the script. The fault message usually includes the line number of the problematic statement in the script. Press the [[Image:]] button and enter that line number to locate the faulty statement quickly.
- Repeat this till a Compiled successfully! message pops up..
- Press the [[Image:]] button. A list pops up:[[Image:]]
- Click on the last option in the list (Save Script... ). Now this script is added to the list (it appears above the line in the list).
