CP How can I ensure that the following entry in a quick template will
CP appear on a single line in the message where I use it?
CP %SetHeader(X-Archive,expiry=0)Using The Bat! v%THEBATVERSION on
CP %WINDOWSMAJORVERSION.%WINDOWSMINORVERSION Build%
CP %WINDOWSBUILDNUMBER %WINDOWSCSDVERSION
You could set it at one single line in the QT, since the text it
generates is so short that it won't come on multiple lines
CP Also, what is the meaning of the %- characters that I sometimes see in
CP quick templates?
The meaning of the %- macro is that the end of line character
immediately after the macro will be forgotten by the editor, so this:
Will result in this:
Most often this is done to enhance the readability
So the macro you proposed could be written as:
Using The Bat! v%THEBATVERSION on %WINDOWSPLATFORMNAME
%WINDOWSMAJORVERSION.%WINDOWSMINORVERSION Build% %WINDOWSBUILDNUMBER %WINDOWSCSDVERSION
Thus Splitting it in a distinct header part of the template that
doesn't have any text implications for the message body, since leaves
no trail whatsoever. And a text part that inserts some numbers.
Of course you could break up that latter sentence into two or more
parts, would give something like this:
Using The Bat! v%THEBATVERSION on %WINDOWSPLATFORMNAME %-
%WINDOWSMAJORVERSION.%WINDOWSMINORVERSION Build% %-
This would give the same result as the previous template, but I think
the readability diminishes.
