Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I've been playing around some to figure out how to demonstrate the power of regular expression support in Midas 4.  One of less obvious uses is with the RegexKeywords method, which returns a comma delimited list of text that matches the regular expression.  I ran a simple agent against the 2007 Business Partner forum to find all the SPRs that are mentioned explicitly, and found 39, 30 of them unique.  It took slightly less than 5 seconds, even though there are 12392 documents).  Because it wasn't just a full text search, I got back an array of words that I could work with in an application.  The agent, all 20 lines of it, is below:

Sub Initialize
   Dim session As New NotesSession
   Dim db As NotesDatabase
   Dim collection As NotesDocumentCollection
   Dim doc As NotesDocument
   Dim keywords As String
   Dim all_keywords As String
   Dim rtitem As New GeniiRTItem
   
   Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
   Set collection = db.UnprocessedDocuments
   Set doc = collection.GetFirstDocument
   While Not (doc Is Nothing)
      Call rtitem.ConnectBackend(doc.Handle, "Body", True)
      keywords = rtitem.Everything.RegexKeywords("(SPR|spr)\s?#\s?:?([A-Z])([A-Z0-9]{9,9})", "$2$3")
      If keywords <> "" Then all_keywords = all_keywords + ","+keywords
      Set doc = collection.GetNextDocument(doc)
   Wend
   Messagebox "SPRs: "+Join(Arrayunique(Split(Right(all_keywords, Len(all_keywords)-1), ",")))
End Sub

Reflecting the fact that a large number of Genii Software's customers are, and always have been, from outside the United Stated, we are now listing prices for all our products in U.S. Dollars, Euros and British Pounds.  Requests for quotes in other currencies will be handled on a case by case basis.  Due to the fluctuation in currencies, we will recalibrate our prices more frequently, probably on a quarterly basis.  See the newly revised pricing pages: CoexEdit pricingCoexLinks pricingMidas Rich Text LSX pricingMidas Rich Text C++ API pricing.

Any customer outside the United States may choose which currency is to be used for quotes and payment.  Continuing our current policy, payments made by check must be denominated in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank or bank with U.S. presence.  Once a currency is chosen, that same currency must be used for subsequent maintenance payments.

It is our hope that this move will help customers who need published prices in their local currency, or at least in a currency other than U.S. Dollars.
