Creating a single-quoted comma separated line of text

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Today I had a need to create a single line of text like this:

‘product1.jpg’, ‘product2.jpg’, ‘product3.jpg’

From a text blob that looks like this:


This text chunk, in this case, comes from a copy-and-paste from a “dir *.jpg” in a Windows XP command window.

There were actually only 6 image file names that I wanted to put into an array in PHP, but I had a feeling that I would be doing this type of task again, so I spent the time to build a tool for it.

So if you need to do something similar, please try the latest addition to Perceptus’ Web Tools site, the List to single quoted CSV Text Wizard (admittedly, we don’t save our best names for that site).  All you need to do is paste in a bunch of words, one per line, and you’ll get back the one line CSV.

I think this will be handy for creating source code for arrays in many languages, and also creating the bulk of the syntax for an IN () SQL statement.

Easter Themed Bingo Cards – 2009

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Lent is already upon us, so we invite you to visit if you need a quick way to generate Easter Themed Bingo Cards.

Our Easter word list is only a starting point for your custom bingo card design. You are encouraged to add or subtract words in the design to get the bingo sheets that are perfect for your needs.

Basic use of our bingo card generator is free! Those who want every bingo design feature that we have available can upgrade for only $10.  Plus, as of a few days ago, you can now generate 1000 pages of cards at a time – it used to be 200!

Free Upgrade for Users!

So, how’s this for customer service? A free upgrade to all of our users!

Prior to about 4 hours ago, our great customers who have upgraded to Premium Access to our web based bingo card generator, were able to generate 200 pages of bingo cards at a time.  Now, both past and future customers can generate a thousand pages of bingo cards at once!

When our site first launched, we imagined that most users would be smaller personal parties, or classroom situations.  Surprisingly, there are a lot of people out there who need thousands of custom bingo cards… so now doing that is 5 times fewer clicks.

This is all possible due to lots of behind the scenes tweaks and upgrades that have happened over the years.

Anyways, enjoy!
