Converting a very long text to concatenated strings?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a very long HTML code text in the clipboard (<HTML>...</HTML>) without line-ends which I want to convert into a string constant in the Editor. If I use any of the GExperts string converters, I get the Compiler error message "Line too long". So how can I convert-split this very long clipboard string into concatenated strings of fixed maximal length suitable for a string constant, e.g.:

 

const MyHTML = '<HTML> ...' +
'...' +
'...' +
...
'...</HTML>';

This is exactly what the MultiPaste tool is for.

Not quite. The MultiPaste expects some text containing multiple lines.

Thanks for all the answers. I was hoping that an existing addon like GExperts or MMX would provide that feature. As it is very easy to write such a tool (and I am not a night worker), I will do it tomorrow.

I just wonder how do you get that text in your clipboard in the first place. Copy from another application (not from file on disk / http URL)?

Another alternative might be to use a text editor that can format your HTML and add quotes (possibly with the help of regex)
