Cory Posted July 25, 2016 Report Share Posted July 25, 2016 I was writing allstarleb about pushing MEP too far. That is trying to write complex routines which it really isn't designed to do. EG sorting an array or performing a RegEx match. I've gotten reasonable proficient in .NET and understand MEP pretty well so I'm willing to write simple command line programs for MEP users in cases where there's a simple function or whatever in .NET that does what you need. YOu can then run them hidden using the "Program Launch" command and it will return your value or values using the "Capture Console Output" feature. A few I've thought of An extension based on .NET WebClient. I could set it up to do GET and POST and return the contents of web pages to you without a web browser. Email send. I have one already for sending HTML formatted email. MEP has a simple email command but is missing many features. RegEx match. As I mentioned before. Very powerful. SQL Server client. Multiple input forms. MS Office Interop. Basically all Office apps have an Interop API. This allows one to open and modify Office docs just like a user. Mainly I was thinking about using it to get lists from Excel. ANd thousands more. As long as it doesn't take too much of my time I'm willing to do them for free.
