  • Macros for SPFPCv3/4, SPFPRO Some macros will work with SPF/PC, SPF/SE and XE using an external DOS or Windows REXX Interpreter such as:  DOSREXX  OOREXX  R4  Reginald  Regina  roo  I recommend the DOSREXX or R4 as they don't require you to delete the SPFPRO sections to run (that darn pesky validation scan).

    ABSTRACT.SPF - Shows how to create a HTML document for IE to display and print. I create a lot of reports and have found it is easier to have REXX build the report into a web page, using IE (or whatever) to display/print the report.

    BACKBOX.SPF - CTC - (Assign to keys) Background Box Drawing Edit Macro.
    Works with SPFPC, SPFPRO.

    BFTPSEND.SPF - Send ANY file to web site(s) defined in list. My second most used macro. I use it to upload HTML/CSS/JAVA/REXX code, FLI, FLV, GIF, JPG/JPEG, PDF, MP3, SWF, WMA, WMV, WAV etc. to web sites I mantain without having to remember the address, userid, password etc. Will also send a copy to a mirror site if specified in list.
    Works with SPFLite, SPF/PC, SPFPC, SPFPRO, SPF/SE(see comment), XE.

    DIR2HTML.SPF - Takes Directory Listing and Creates HTML page. Expects the input file to be C:\TEMP\DRET.TXT and the Output file will be C:\TEMP\DRET.HTM

    Works with SPFLite, SPF/PC SPFPC, SPFPRO SPF/SE(see comment), XE.

    EDITFILE.SPF - CTC - (Assign to a key) EDITFILE is best used when assigned to a key, like CTRL-E. It allows you to be inside a source module that makes reference to a copy book or a C include file and, by positioning the cursor on top of the name of the file and hitting the assigned key, edit the file with a single keystroke.
    Works with SPFPC, SPFPRO.

    H3.SPF - (Assign to key and/or mouse) This macro is designed to provide a help screen when you place cursor over key word and double-click or use assigned function key. Having to program in one of ten languages on a given day, I needed a system to refresh memory. This macro uses indexes to determine where to find the info for the keyword. Calls 3 types of help files: Text, WebPage and Windows CHM. In SPFPC/SPFPRO place cursor on keyword and press assigned key. When a text file is used, the keyword syntax is displayed one line above the keyword. When viewing a web page or windows help (CHM) the internet browser (IE or another) is invoked passing the location of the CHM help file. Press ALT F4 to close window and return to SPF.
    NOTE: For SPFPRO users, when editing SPF or ISP macros H3 will call the buit-in SPFPRO help system for the keyword. For SPFPCv3/4 users the SPFPRO.BDX index will be used to call an indexed web version of the SPFPRO help file. For non-SPFPRO/SPFPCv3/4 (such as SPF/PC 2.1, SPF/SE, XE). This macro will work when called from the command line with parms passed through to your Windows or DOS REXX interpreter.

Using SPFPC/SPFPRO Sub can execute SPF/ISP macros and SPFPC/SPFPRO Dialog/Panels. SPF/SE C macros are sent to SPF/SE for execution. When compiler source (BASIC/ZBASIC/POWERBASIC, COBOL, etc is sumbitted, SUB swaps the filespec exnt (.bas .c .pbc .pbs etc) for .com/.exe and attempts to execute such in the source code home directory. SUB can execute REXX macros using your favorite REXX interpreter. DBase/XBase source is sent to the DB engine for execution. PalmDOC files are sent to DOCREADER for execution.
