Hello everybody, a new version of nanDECK is available, with bugs fixed and new features:
New CMYK directive
The CMYK command has this syntax:
CMYK = Range, ON/OFF, ICC profile
The ON flag enable the CMYK color profile when saving .jpg images, and optionally you can specify an .icc / .icm color profile (or another .jpg to read its profile).
New TAGS directive
This directive creates a rule that is evaluated in the Simulator (a new feature, albeit still basic). The rule can contain series of letters of numbers, with this syntax:
- one or more “$” symbol, then letters to define a tag’s value that is present, using the same letter means that the same element is present with that number of copies,
- one or more “£” symbol, then numbers to define the difference between the values of tag when multiple copies are present (i.e. in a straight); with the !N>M syntax is defined that a tag with value N is treated also like M (i.e. the ace in a straight can be positioned before the 2 or after the King),
- one or more “=” symbol, then one or more tags that must be present.
You can specify more than one rule for a single directive, all of which will be evaluated at the same time, by separating each rule (and each tag) with the pipe character “|”.
Example (poker probability):
tags=value,$aaaab,Four of a kind
tags=value,$aaabc,Three of a kind
New RANGELABEL function
This function converts a sequence of numbers into a range:
[label] = RANGELABEL([sequence])
New RANGEMERGE function
This function creates a new range mixing the cards from two or more ranges:
[range] = RANGEMERGE(“range1”, “range2″, …”rangeN”)
Added parameters in DISPLAY directive for transparency
DISPLAY = “image file”, first card, last card, width, “range”, transparent color, “mask file”
The last two parameters can be used to save an image file with a transparency, and are used the same way as the parameters in SAVE directive.
Added parameters in SAVEPAGES directive for CMYK format
SAVEPAGES = “filename”, switch, color profile
Switch and color profile are the same as in CMYK directive.
Added V, S, C, and E flags in BATCH directive
The flag added after the batch specifies when the batch is executed, i.e.:
V the batch is executed at the validation step
S the batch is executed at the start of the build step
C the batch is executed at the end of each built card
E the batch is executed at the end of the build step
Added D flag in HTMLIMAGE to disable size adjustment
Usually the images in the HTMLIMAGE directive are drawn rescaled in HTMLTEXT (if using the F flag), with the D flag that behavior is disabled (and the images are drawn with the size specified).
Added H flag in HTMLIMAGE to disable vertical spacing
If the height of an image in HTMLIMAGE directive is higher than a character in HTMLTEXT, the lines are drawn with more space between each other, instead with the H flag the lines are drawn more closer.
