    No useful script. Just an little lesion.
    Loop virtually through all lines in file
    The cursor will not move!
    We access each line by its number only.

    – – –

    Best to learn is to do some lessons.
    So i will show my steps creating an macro for others.

    I am not saying that this is the best way to do it,
    it is just an start.

    If you have an better way to do it, or other
    suggestions, just reply 🙂


    ////Loop virtually through all lines in file
    ////(Cursor will not move!
    //// We access each line by its number only.)

    LinesInFile = document.GetLines();
    LineToStart = 1;
    alert ("Lines in file: " + LinesInFile);

    ////For Each Line in File Do:
    for (var LINE = LineToStart; LINE <= LinesInFile; LINE++)
    {
    ////Get the lines content:
    str = document.GetLine(LINE);

    ////===Example use, add here your own code======
    ////Show the content and ask to continue:
    bAnswer = confirm("Processing line " + LINE
    + ". Content:nn"
    + str + "nnnn"
    + "Continue?" );

    ////What to do If you pressed cancel?:
    if (bAnswer == false){break;}
    //use "break; to exit the "for" loop only
    //use "quit();" to cancel the whole script
    ////===END of Example use, =====================
    }

    alert("All done. Script quits.");

    No useful script. Just an little lesion.
    Loop virtually through only the selected lines in file.
    The cursor will not move!

    ////Loop through Selection

    ////Object handling to save always typing of 'document.selection':
    var d = document;
    var s = d.selection;


    ////////Get the selected text to work on:
    ////////(Depends if already something is selected or not)
    if (s.IsEmpty)
    {
    ////If document.selection is empty:
    vWasAnSelection = false;

    ////Alternative one
    //alert("Nothing selected, script quits. Please select and start again.");
    //quit();

    ////Alternative two
    alert("Nothing selected, script will select whole text for you.");
    s.SelectAll();

    }else{

    ////If there was an selection already:
    vWasAnSelection = true;
    alert("Selected text to work on: n" + s.text);
    }



    ////////Get start and end line of the selection:
    ///Returns the line number of the top of the selection.
    FirstSelLine = s.GetTopPointY(eePosLogical);
    ///Returns the line number of the bottom of the selection.
    LastSelLine = s.GetBottomPointY(eePosLogical);



    ////For Each Line In SelectedLineS Do:
    for( Line = FirstSelLine; Line <= LastSelLine; Line++)
    {
    //// <<< Your code here >>>
    //// Here an simple example:
    ret = Confirm(d.GetLine(Line));
    if (ret == false) {if (!vWasAnSelection){s.Collapse();} Quit();}
    }


    ////If there was no selection do an UnSelectAll at the end:
    if (!vWasAnSelection) s.Collapse();

    Some examples for section:

    ////Delete start of line (Remove first sign/char):
    redraw = false;
    document.selection.SetActivePoint( eePosLogical, 1, Line );
    str = document.GetLine( Line );
    if (str != “”)
    {
    document.selection.StartOfLine();
    document.selection.Delete();
    }

    ////Delete end of line (Remove last sign/char):
    redraw = false;
    document.selection.SetActivePoint( eePosLogical, 1, Line );
    str = document.GetLine( Line );
    if (str != “”)
    {
    document.selection.EndOfLine();
    document.selection.DeleteLeft();
    }

    However, for just this task there
    would be an easier solution then such an big script as shown above:

    //Remove first sign from selected lines
    redraw = false;
    document.selection.Replace(“^.”,””, eeReplaceSelOnly | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp);
    document.HighlightFind = false;

    //Remove last sign from selected lines
    redraw = false;
    document.selection.Replace(“.$”,””, eeReplaceSelOnly | eeReplaceAll | eeFindReplaceRegExp);
    document.HighlightFind = false;
