PostPosted: Sun 04 Sep 2016, 18:39    Post subject:  A MRU[F/D] script to help you recall the apps you ran
Subject description: and the files you viewed in your Puppy during your last sessions.
 

Please Note. -- The latest version is referenced among the last of
my posts on this thread.

Hello all.

It starts here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=921816&sort=lastpost#921816

I left it in that thread because I believe in continuity. Although theoretically
it should go here, in this section, according to some.

Keeping it in that thread may not be ideal, but there you have the
advantage of seeing the evolution of the script and how forum members
responded to the idea. And obviously I couldn't import their comments on
this thread.

Sorry if this decision offends anyone. Try to enjoy! I hope that you will find
that new, designed-for-Puppy, MRUF/MRUD script useful.

BFN

Just seems posting the pet here would be a good idea Idea

If the pet package changes, you can easily update the first post with the new version.

Someone accesses this topic and the pet package is in the first posting. Easy to find and get the latest version.

When you make a post like this could you please tell people what acronyms like MRUF/MRUD mean?
Thanks.

Hello disciple.

MRUD=Most Recently Used Directories, according to The Free Dictionary.
"Most Recently Used Documents", by extension.

The expression Most Recently Used Files or "MRUF" for short, is frequently
heard in the WhineDose world, but not unheard of in the Linux world.

JHTH. BFN.

Hello, all.

After quite a few months, please find below the latest version my MRUF-lst
menu, version 0.9.6. This is for 32-bit Puppies.

This version has the major change of using
Code:
LC_ALL=C
when menu construction starts to speed things up. This change brings down
menu construction time to +/- 5.5 seconds while it was over 30 seconds.

It would be 3,77 seconds were it not for the splash info that has to stay on
screen for 5 seconds to be read properly. Human perception limits things.

LC_ALL is restored before the menu is displayed, so there is no
interference with language settings for the menu AFAIK.

Before using it as a menu, may I suggest that you open a console in
/usr/local/bin and type
Code:
MRUF-lst h
and read the info presented.

The design has not changed so I'm not including any captures.

Constructive feedback welcome.

BFN.

Hello again, people!

Another one!
Version 0.9.7 of this history menu now incorporates the listing of

-- the last 10 packages that you installed through PPM
AND
-- the last 10 files that you saved in your "My-Documents" directory.

Also, the opening splash screen now uses vovchik's script for bcm
instead of yaf-splash.

Make no mistake, once you get the knack of it, this menu is a
tremendous time saver!


I hope you like it.

BFN.

I haven't tested but this looks very nicely done.

I have something similar in terminal but yours is much nicer.

Thanks Musher0
