/me looks at the speechless monks...

Here's the example script that I used in the column. It's not great code, but I had time and space limitations that were kicking my ass, but enough excuses... It shows a little Perl being embedded inside a Scheme script, and that's all that counts for now.


#!/usr/bin/env gimp-request (begin ; This is a helper function that puts ; the contents of @ARGV into the ; Scheme variable, argv. {set_argv} ; This uses perl's regexes to create ; filenames for the thumbnails. Doing ; this in Scheme would be harder. (set! outfiles '{ sexp_from_list( map { s/\..*$/-thumbnail.png/; $_ } @ARGV) }) ; configure your scaling factor (set! scale 0.30) ; This is a function for resizing and saving images (define (resize filename) (let* ((image (car (gimp-file-load 0 filename filename))) (drawable nil) (wd (car (gimp-image-width image))) (hi (car (gimp-image-height image))) (_wd (* wd scale)) (_hi (* hi scale)) (new-filename nil)) (gimp-image-scale image _wd _hi) (set! drawable (car (gimp-image-flatten image))) (set! new-filename (car outfiles)) (set! outfiles (cdr outfiles)) (gimp-file-save 1 image drawable new-filename new-filename) (gimp-image-delete image) )) ; Finally, make a thumbnail out of every file in argv (for-each resize argv) )

    [erix]: heh
    [Veltro]: is it a question?
    [erix]: or a conundrum?
    [Veltro]: and if I may give you a hint, use qr/\xC2\xB0|\xB0/ instead of the degree sign
