I'm just gonna try my luck and hope someone is interested in doing this:
I made a batch script (not the best but it works #NothingSpecialGramps) that goes through a IDE file, copies the ID number for whatever model that has been defined and changes the ID (if it is different in the IPL) for that model in the IPL file. Here is the script if anyone is interested in trying it out. (make sure whatever IDE file is renamed to test1.ide & the IPL changed to test2.ipl, or you can change the names in the actual script)
:: remove variables starting $
FOR /F "delims==" %%a In ('set $ 2^>Nul') DO SET "%%a="
FOR /f "tokens=1,2delims=," %%a IN (test1.ide) DO SET "$%%a=%%b"
FOR /f "tokens=1,2*delims=," %%a IN (test2.ipl) DO (
FOR /F "tokens=1*delims=$=" %%r In ('set $') DO IF "%%b"=="%%s" SET replaced=Y&ECHO(%%r,%%b,%%c
IF NOT DEFINED replaced ECHO(%%a,%%b,%%c
While the above does make it quicker and easier to copy model IDs from IDE to IPL, the problem is I can only do it one at a time, and a lot of the time the model is in more than one IPL. If anyone is interested, could someone make a tool/batch/anything! etc. that can go through all of the IDEs model IDs & copy/paste that ID to the corresponding model in whatever IPLs it has been defined in?
Thanks for reading & cheers
