Calculations in TextPipe Pro?

Post by Ian »

Wondering if there are any sample scripts or 'easy' ways to do calculations?
Now I use Excel (Mac OS), but it would be nice if everything could be done in TextPipe Pro.

E.g. Want to add a number (130) to a tab delimited column of variable numbers.
524 +130 = 654
1500 + 130 = 1630
80 + 130 = 210
5 + 130 = 135

Any suggestions much appreciated.

First use a tab field restriction. Inside it, use a Script filter to write a one line of code to perform your calculation.
