Import/Export Settings
« on: March 28, 2007, 01:44:32 PM »
Hi ,

I run Linux at home and Windows at work and import settings from ftp when they have changed. This causes a problem though which is the settings for the backup directory for the rdl file. When i import from linux into windows that setting is changed to something like "\usr\......" which in windows is not valid. I then have to manually change it to a valid dir in windows. Same problem the other way.

Would it be possible to have just a import password settings option rather than import all settings.

Brilliant software by the way!

Hi,

Thanks for the compliments. I'll consider import of only passwords, but since you're the only person who's asked for this, it's unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Since you run linux at home, you must surely have the stream editor installed (commonly known as `sed`). If I were you, I'd add a script to your logout procedure that would do a "sed -e 's/(properly-escaped unix-style path)/(properly-escaped windows-style path)/gi' < (settings file) > (temp file)" and then ftp (temp file) to your destination, and on logon, retrieve the file from ftp and run "sed -e 's/(properly-escaped windows-style path)/(properly-escaped unix-style path)/gi' < (temp file) > (settings file)"...
