I have a gift for all the predictors out there tonight!

I finished re-building the number-parsing engine for the predictions posting page, to make entering your predictions much easier and more error-resistant.

No longer do you need to enter each pick on its own line!

Anything that looks readable to your eye should be OK for the parser to handle.  It will even throw away extra "junk" it finds, like extra blank lines, miscellaneous characters, HTML markup, etc.

I tested as much as I could, but there may be a bug or two.

If you find a bug, please send me a Private Message to let me know!

        Nice Todd... Thank you !!

        Thanks!

        Now that it no longer requires one pick per line, do you think I should change the copy feature for the Lucky's Followers System to copy like "123, 456, 789", or should I keep it as-is?

        Pasting from Deflate should be a snap now.

                        Thx Todd. I wonder just how much money you have earned for all of us here on LP.

                          Thanks!  (To you and everyone else)

                          It was actually an interesting to revisit the number-parsing code, because it is program code that I haven't looked at in several years.  In the time since then, my coding has continued to evolve and improve, so looking back on that old code was a little strange.  (And asking myself, "Why did I do it that way?")

                          It took me one night (maybe 6-7 hours) to re-write the parser and surrounding code.  I'll bet back then it would have taken me a few days to program, and even with the extra development time it would not be quite so flexible or fool-proof.  You can teach an old dog new tricks!  Big Grin
