Re: DXKeeper 1.1.6 is available

I think the answer that would best satisfy the most people (and
certainly me), is place the first word in the name field and every
thing else in the comment field. It won't be 100% but it will be
right more often than wrong.

If there's no standard for how the information is
jammed together, then it
will be difficult to satisfy everyone. Sounds like
"Import from Logger"
should mean "place the contents of the name field into
the comments field",
or maybe "place everything after the first word of the
name field into the
comments field".

I'll leave it as it is for now, but suggests would be
greatly appreciated...

Yes, of course I saw that too and Logger is a bit
flaky on that
score because it doesn't have separate fields for
name and QTH and
the exports the comment field with the <NAME> tag. I could see
what your difficulty was there and actually I thought
you did a
pretty good job of unscrambling the mess. Keep in
mind that Logger
does not require a colon between the name and the rest of the
comment field, the only real separator is white
space. Some of my
entries have a colon because they were imported from
yet another
logging program that I used early on. More recent entries that
were made directly into Logger do not have a colon.
That may help
you as you attempt to refine the parsing process but
you'll never
get it perfect. That comment field is totally free
form and can
contain almost anything. Most of my entries do have
"name" as the
first word but what comes after that is anybody's
guess, it's not
necessarily QTH, in fact I only rarely log QTH.
