How to extend Smultron using Commands
Authored by: broomdodger on Jun 17, '07 09:27:11PM
Are you using Smultron 3.1 ? Maybe that's what's going on.
I just now tried Smultron 2.2.7 and it gives "Invalid parameter" for the "<"

How to extend Smultron using Commands
Authored by: gshenaut on Jun 18, '07 08:35:01AM

No, an earlier version wouldn't help. The ability to filter selected text was new in 3.0, and 3.1 fixed various issues, so I was just thinking that you may have been using 3.0 and that this was a bug in that version.

How about the version of par ? I seem to have version 1.52, installed via darwinports. (You can check yours by the command "par version".)

In any case, you should compare the results of running the par command with the same input text both within smultron and from the command line, to see if you get truncated text both times. If you do, then it's undoubtedly a par problem; if you get it only within smultron, it's a smultron problem; and if you get it only on the command line, then I'd have no idea what's going on.

I also have par 1.52 vial darwinports.

Right now I am more interested in using par with TextExtras inside TextEdit.
I am new to unix scripting but not programming, and do not know the syntax.

Have you tried that?
