This build has been stable, and I've been using it for 2 years. The script.html and changes.txt files are incomplete, but I want to make sure you have access to this build. So please, download and share with your corpies, and let me know if you encounter any issues.

In a future release, I will re-add the misspelled anomaly command back, for compatibility with older scripts. There's no reason we can't have both spellings, if that will ease the transition to the latest TWX Proxy version.

Regards,
+EP+

It isn't hosted anywhere, but I can post it here easily enough. I'll shoot for next weekend.

EDIT: Attached.

EP can you elaborate on the new commands?

Just a listing of any new commands not represented in script.html or changes would suffice.

Some of these may be documented in the script.html file. I expect there are problems with some of these commands. So feel free to play, just don't depend on them beyond testing, and be prepared for outright problems in some.
Code:
// Commands added for 2.05beta
// CMD: cutLengths <value> array <lengths1,length2,...>
// CMD: format InputVar OutputVar CONSTANT
  // CONSTANT=CURRENCY, NUMBER, DATETIMETOSTR, or STRTODATETIME
// CMD: getDirList varArray <FileMask>
// CMD: getWordCount <text> storageVar
// CMD: MakeDir <directory name>
// CMD: padLeft var <value>
  // add spaces to the left of a variable
// CMD: padRight var <value>
// CMD: RemoveDir <directory name>
// CMD: setMenuKey <value>
// CMD: splitText <text> varArray {delims}
  // blank delims defaults to Space and Tab
// CMD: trim var
// CMD: truncate var

I am working on putting together a combined TWX Proxy reference book as a PDF; other features will be incorporated as separate PDF as well, a player's quick guide and game editor's guide.

I am about 1/2 done now, but lots of stuff to go over, so a bit slow. I would love to have help editing once I finalize each portion. Will post them as I go for feedback.

Yay! That said I suck at TWX native language and really couldn't help there beyond documentation if appropriate.

Micro, have you thought about porting it to C#?

More than thought about it. I bought a Delphi to C# converter, but it would still take an immense amount of work to get it to compile.

If someone could convert this file to C#, the rest would be child's play:

I'm currently learning C#. It looks like Pascal includes some of the same concepts from C# that were new to me coming from Java, such as properties and events as class members. (Or are they more like module members in Pascal?) An example of the automatic converter's output might help me understand and contribute.

Here is the output from the converter.

It is certainly not worth what I paid. It would be easier to write most of it from scratch, because the libraries in .net are completely different.

Both languages use object oriented programming, so there are a lot of similarities. The Begin/End tags make it look more like Visual Basic though.
