Dynamic Token List
Dynamic Tokens are little strings that are automatically translated on
the fly. Most places in Toolfish support this such as file parameters
and messages, meaning these can be used in spoken text, log output, macros,
pop up windows and auto email sending.
Most probably won't have a use for them, if you do tech support sometimes
it's nice to have actual real dates/times in your form macro answers.
Here is the list:
$IP_ADDRESS$ - This is your current
IP address. If you have multiple network cards/IP's it makes a pretty
smart guess at your real IP. Example: 126.96.36.199
$DATE$ - Prints the current date in
this format: Monday, October 14 2002
$SHORT_DATE$ - Short version of the
date, suitable for filenames: 10-14
$TIME$ - The current system time with
AM/PM, looks like this: 8:45 PM
$LAST_COMPARE_URL$ - The last URL
compared. If a URL was compared earlier in the same event this token appears
in it actually overrides the actual last URL compared, this way you can
run 200 web compares at the same time and get the expected results despite
multiple threads running at the same time.
$LAST_NEW_EMAIL_COUNT$ - This is the
value of how many new emails were found the last time new emails actually
were found. This is so you can create your own custom "You got 5
emails" message for an email check if you wish.
$CLIPBOARD$ - This the text currently
in the clipboard. Using this you could for instance, set up an action
that opens a website with whatever is in the clipboard as a parm. (You
would have to hit Control-C to copy something into the clipboard first,
or it would be blank or possibly some older undesirable text you had last
