A new version of EulumdatTools 0.11.2.v20140911 was published on September 11 at http://www.fold1.com/eulumdattools/.
The EULUMDAT validator was improved by:
- allowing easier deployment of sandbox (experimental) checkers and features.
Yesterday I described the feature of finding hidden symmetry in EULUMDAT files, today we talk about duplicate Product Codes.
Detecting duplicate Product Codes
Many files for products are created by copying an existing file and editing some of the data. Sometimes the Product Code is not edited correctly, so there are multiple files all describing the same Product Code. When using the files to enter them into a database for online or mobile lighting calculations, such as for lightingCalc confusing data may be the result. Detecting duplicate product codes is easy from now on, set as global Preference or per project Property.
Enable the Sandbox checker in the Preferences for global reach...
or select a project and set it in the Properties.
Errors in the Problems View will show what and where duplicates are located.
