Softfields Technologies Home ST Thumbnails Explorer 1.5: Command line options

Usage:

  sttex.exe -FUNC:THUMBEXPORT -INP:FOLDER=<SourceFolder> [-INP:FILES=<FileMasks>] [-INCLSUBFLDRS:NO|YES] [-OUT:FOLDER=<DestFolder>] [-OPT:<.CFG file path>] [-ERRLOG:<Log file path>]

The command line parameters can follow in the arbitrary order.

Example:

  sttex.exe -FuNC:THUMbExPORT -inp:Folder="F:\Sample Art\AI\Misc" -INP:FILES=*.* -OUT:FOLDER=C:\New -OPT:ExportSet.cfg -INCLSUBFLDRS:Yes -ERRLOG:ExpFiles.log

Parameters:

  -FUNC:THUMBEXPORT - The function name; the mandatory parameter, cannot be omited.

  -INP:FOLDER=<SourceFolder> - The full path of the root folder for thumbnails export; the mandatory parameter, cannot be omited.

  -INP:FILES=<FileMasks> - The list of space-separated file masks for exporting thumbnails from <SourceFolder> folder.
If the mask contains spaces it must be quoted (e.g. sample???.cdr *.ai "my photo*.jpg").
If this parameter is omited, the application uses the universal mask *.*.

  -INCLSUBFLDRS:NO|YES - If is set INCLSUBFLDRS:NO, the program will process only files of the <SourceFolder> folder which satisfy the file masks <FileMasks>.
If is set INCLSUBFLDRS:YES, the program will process ALL files in subfolders of the <SourceFolder> also.
If the option INCLSUBFLDRS is omited, by default the application uses INCLSUBFLDRS:NO.

  -OUT:FOLDER=<DestFolder> - The full path of the root folder to write the exported thumbnails files.
If this option is omited, the program uses thumbnails export settings from the system registry.

  -ERRLOG:<Log file path> - The path (full path or filename only) of the log file using to write the errors during thumbnails export.
If <Log file path> contains a file name only, the program searches for the file in the folder <User Application Data>\SFTech\STTEX1_5\Logs
where <User Application Data> is the file system directory that serves as a common repository for application-specific data
(a typical path is C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data on Windows 2000/XP or C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming on Windows Vista+).
If this option is omited, the application will output the error messages on the screen.

  -OPT:<.CFG file path> - The path (full path or filename only) of the configuration file containing the thumbnails export parameters.
If <.CFG file path> contains a file name only, the program searches for the file in the folder <User Application Data>\SFTech\STTEX1_5\Export Sets
If this option is omited, the application uses thumbnails export settings from the system registry.

The config file has .INI file similar syntax, and it can be created and/or edited in any text editor (e.g. Notepad).

and specify an appropriate option in the appeared submenu, or click the appropriate button on the toolbar).
Perform settings in the Thumbnails Export dialog window, then click the Save button:


- To edit an export settings config file:
Launch the program and call Thumbnails Export dialog window.
Load an export settings config file for edit (click the Load button in the Thumbnails Export dialog window and select the file to edit).
