    I confirmed as per discussion previously about trying to get a working script for virtualboy advance that it is indeed failing on files with spaces. How can we remedy this so that it can backup and restore files with spaces. I thought about the idea of putting if statements in the script for if save and if restore and putting a zip command line for the folder as worse case. However this is an issue that could crop up in more apps down the road and should be addressed on the level that is causing it to fail on files with spaces. But I have no idea where to look to even consider making these modifications.

    I talked to Rod about this...we have to do a similar solution as to what we did with Database names with spaces. We know about it and will see what we can do to fix it!

    I took a shot at updating the srf.app.files file to allow for spaces in filenames... all you need to do is load this into the /var/svc/org.webosinternals/saverestore directory like any other script. test it out and let me know if it works and i will update the file in the app

    Cool beans I'll test it out in a couple hours give or take. I got a few things I need to take care of first. Thanks much for looking into it. When I didn't hear from anyone I was concerned that we hit a road block or something.

    Save/Restore 1.0.3 should be in the testing feed shortly (can take some time before it shows up, possibly even a few hours!).

    Update includes:
    - Added support for filenames with spaces
    - Added backup script to save and restore the AutoReplace Dictionary (courtesy of Audemars02)
    - Applications updated: wIRC (courtesy of Audemars02)

    I tested the srf.app.files in post #1006. Worked just fine, it backed up the directory this time with it containing the files I had previously list. Here is the script for virtualboy advance.

    Save/Restore 1.0.3 is now in the feeds.... I didn't want to announce the Easter Eggs yet, but I realized that there was something I did that could affect your scripts if you manually copied in the "Misc OS Files" script I posted a few weeks ago. basically, here is what I did:

    As I mention, I now have the AutoReplace Dictionary as a backup script. To get this to run, I used the backup app (com.palm.app.backup) as the App ID, which is the same app I used for my "Misc OS Files", which included the AutoReplace but also a lot more. So, but using the Backup app in the official scripts, I would be overwriting your larger "Misc OS Files" script. but fear not, because this is where the Easter Eggs come in:

    I now have the "Misc OS Files" script and the "ZIP the entire Save/Restore Folder" script loaded in the app, but not in the scripts directory. All you need to do is move those over to the right directory and you have the scripts back to normal. The scripts are housed in /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.saverestore/contrib , and there There are 2 ways to get them were you need to

    1) Run the following to commands via Command Line.
    Code:
    chmod ugo+x /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webos
    internals.saverestore/contrib/*
    cp /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.saverestore/contrib/* /var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore
    2) using Internals:
    • Go to /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.saverestore/contrib/
    • Select each script you want and click Info
    • Select "Linux Permissions" and enable the "+X" for all three areas (See attached screenshot) and hit OK then backswipe back to the file list.
    • select each script and select "copy" to /var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore


    Going forward, I may look to change the AutoReplace app ID to something else, so that it won't overwrite it every time there is an update. But for now, you have access to the Misc OS Backup and the ZIP script on your device!

    Let me know if you have any questions

    I've attached the following Zip's :

    TechTray - works to save any newly entered feeds

    GPS Trip Panel- works to save any saved trips

    EasyList- works saves anything entered

    What's for dinner? Lite- works to save recipes and shopping list


    I tried to play around figuring out the free app called "SmartRunner" but I seemed to run into a funny problem when it came to restoring the Database(error message)? If anyone would like to take a look at that it would be great to save/restore any Recorded History logs saved.

    Have a good one....

    It is the App from the Script. Sorry if this was confusing.

    Otherwise, looks good.
    Ah ok.. i thought this was a VARIABLE I had to change with my AppID.

    Thanks for including my App into this. I apreciate it a lot!

    Thanks

    I feel silly as I forgot to change the app name for some of the scripts I wrote. I did copy and paste for ease of quickly making all of the scripts. Pandora and DZ tanks are visually named feeds when looking at the list inside the app but have the proper app id below. I guess I should have triple checked before zipping them up. Sorry

    Can you give more details or a screenshot of the error message? can you post the script you wrote to debug?

    FOUND ISSUE WITH SAVE/RESTORE 1.0.3. In my attempt to allow Filenames with spaces, this has caused an issue with our existing scripts. basically, if we have scripts that saved multiple files by identifying:
    Code:
    FILES="file1 file2 file3"
    now, instead of saving the 3 files, it thinks this is just one file named "file1 file2 file3"

    I am going to push out a new update to save/restore with the older version of the filenames script. I will reach out to the team to figure out how we get around this

    To fix this in the meantime, you can edit the srf.app.files script and remove the following lines:

    OIFS=$IFS
    IFS='$\n'
    .
    .
    .
    IFS=$OIFS

    I will post the Non-working "SmartRunner" Script in a little for you to see. Also I will try a screenshot of the actual error message also.

    My geuss is it ties the info online somehow and doesn't like to be replaced. When I replace databases it says something like "waiting for workers when inside the app" then I have to unistall the app and reinstall the app to get it to work again...

    Also just a thought on reading through the saving files that include spaces, I'm not sure how you read though the files but if you put something to check if what you've read includes a peroid inside that way once a peroid is read tell it to make that a file when it reaches the very next space or the end of the list. I have just noticed that they use a period only once in almost all cases.

    Save/Restore 1.0.4 should be in the testing feed shortly (can take some time before it shows up, possibly even a few hours!).

    Update includes:
    - Fixed issue where multiple files were beings saved (this was caused by the update to allow spaces in filenames). Until Rod can look over my work and suggest a better solution, any script that will be used for filenames with spaces needs to add the following line right before you call "source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files"
    Code:
    NEWIFS=$'/n'
    - Also, we have changed the permissions of the scripts in the "contrib" directory so you don't need to set the LINUX permissions for them. You just need to copy those files to the saverestore scripts directory. I have added a "readme.txt" file in /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.saverestore/contrib that explains the process
    - Remember, if you use the full "Misc OS Files" script (and not just for AutoReplace dictionary), you need to copy that back from the contrib directory above back to the main scripts directory.

    NOTE 1: Anyone interested in getting access to the testing feed, follow the instructions here: Testing Feeds - WebOS Internals ... Please be sure to add the "-all" testing feed and the feed the relates to your device (pre/pixi/emulator)

    Edit : ScreenShot Error message Added
    Ok.. i THINK i know whats happening.
    • It looks like there are 2 databases that this app uses (see screenshot below): smartrunner & ext:Smartrunner
    • The "ext:" means that that database is held on media\internal\.app-storage instead of /var/palm/data
    • So, from a database view, the only difference between the two names is that one has an "s" (lowercase) and that other has an "S" (CAPS).
    • I wonder if the seemingly duplicate names are causing problems.


    Rod -- I have attached 2 screenshots from Terminal that shows exactly what is happening when you run the script from the command line. Any thoughts?

    Sounds like a good solution. A short one line added to a script that has file names with spaces. I'll test that out with the VBA script. The only other solution I could think of would have been to make the scripts that specify file name comma delineated instead of space delineated but that is much more work than adding this line to new scripts that will be backing up and restoring names with spaces.

    EDIT: Tested by copying open source information.pdf to the VBA save directory and get error bi not found. Not sure why since there is only this one file in there and bi is not even a sub string of the file name.
