Also posted at stackexchange ( http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/70282/can-someone-make-a-log-cleanup-script-for-minecraft ) Hoping someone from either site picks up the idea I am just teaching myself some scripting (main focus is command helpers Compiled scripting language to fix plugins, its alot based on java) I know it is possible to do what I want but I dont know how. I think many people could benefit from a script which would cleanup 'useless' errors out of a RAW server.log so when they archive, its not going to take up a ton of space. I just went through an edited a server log file with had over 246 million lines in it. Mostly from an error spam of "IO: Connection reset" The file went from over a gig in size, to about 7mb. I had to use several programs to do this, including **Gsplit**(Split the 1 gig file to smaller because gvim was crashing on issueing the command to find and delete the error lines), **gVim** (*:g/IO: Connection reset/d*), (tried to use **010Editor**, but it wouldn't do what i wanted it to do). Here is what I need: - Common Errors removed from server.log files - make it drag and drop able * * user would drag server(or w/e the name they put on it).log files and drop them on the icon we have. It would auto output the 'fixed' file to the same directory) I'd like to be able to package this idea for distribution. If its possible to do this with a java script that would be best as ALL users of minecraft have java installed to be able to play the game. Obviously I would like it to be free because I am 'releasing' this idea to the public. If i'm not the first one to have this idea, or its already been done (packaged) let me know or even better toss me a link!
