As a “note to self,” I wrote two more Textmate commands yesterday, one to capitalize each word in a selection of words, and another to convert a CSV list of words to a simple list. Here’s the source code for the Capitalize command:
perl -ne 'print ucfirst $_'
$_ portion of that Perl command isn’t required, but I include it as a reminder to myself about how Textmate commands and snippets work.
Here’s the source code for my Textmate command that uses the Unix
tr command to convert a CSV list of words (such as a paragraph of comma-separated words) into a simple list of words:
tr , "\n"
As you can see, those commands are fairly simple. If you know Unix/Linux and then know a little about how to write Textmate commands, you can usually get it to do what you want. I like that you can use any Mac/Unix programming language or tool to solve the problem at hand.
