CommentFilter

   

This perl program allows you to strip unwanted comments from an SGF file downloaded from KGS.

Usage

Install perl [1], copy the program below into a text file and call it CommentFilter.pl. On your computer from within a DOS (PC) or shell prompt (UNIX/Linux) type: -

 perl -w CommentFilter.pl oldsgffile.sgf newsgffile.sgf options

where options are as follows: -

 -pl         - Keep comments from the players of the game.
 -u username - Keep comments from username.

Examples

 perl -w CommentFilter.pl bvsa.sgf newbvsa.sgf -pl

Keep only comments from the players of the game.

 perl -w CommentFilter.pl bvsa.sgf newbvsa.sgf -u Datakuru

Keep comments by Datakuru only.

 perl -w CommentFilter.pl bvsa.sgf newbvsa.sgf -pl Datakuru -pl chrisg

Keep comments by Datakuru and chrisg only.

Improvements

  • Ability to filter based on rank (-r option).
  • Ability to support SGF downloaded from other Go Servers.
  • Make it work when comments include newlines (at least I have this problem).

If anyone feels inclined to make these improvements please add an in progress tag to the end of the improvement and have a go. Please remember to update this page when you've finished :-), thanks.

 # D. Gilder - replaced [A-Za-z0-9] with \w

 # D. Gilder - added code to handle -r argument

juhtolv: Ahem... What is the license of that script? I propose you use GNU GPL.

nachtrabe: It is released, de facto by the inclusion of the source code on SL, under the Open Content License. The author may choose to "dual license" it and also release it under another license such as the BSD or GPL, but for the moment consult the OCL for terms of use.

[1] tderz: Dumb question of a Compu-bet: how would I do that?
Do I have to buy it or is it downloadable from the web?
Is this another operating system or can I run it under Windows?

Chris Hayashida: Perl is a free programming language. It's probably easiest to download it from [ext] http://www.perl.com. If you are using Windows, then you'll probably end up downloading the binaries compiled by ActiveState?. After you have it installed, you will run the script from the command prompt. There are more details on the Perl website.

tderz: that was fast! - thank you Chris.
