I recently had to look at reducing some metadata in a Salesforce solution, and wanted to check line counts etc…..
Best way I found:
// Go to menue:
// find->find in files
// Switch on reg_ex button
// Then click on the find button
// Be careful to not click on Replace!!!
// On the bottom line of your search result you'll find something like:
// 21342 matches in 124 files = your lines of code
So…..I guess this is my first post. Problem is, its not, however this blog, or rather the hosting company suffered a major Failure earlier in the year, which led to nearly 2 months downtime! At the end of it all the hosting company couldn’t restore my posts, and I guess I have to share some of that blame for not backing them up myself (How stupid to expect my hosting provide to do it properly!).
So after a few tantrums, strongly worded emails (In the traditional British way!) and a bit of a sulk, I have decided to re-start the blog, and to be honest, Now that I’ve had a time to think about it, I actually feel its not a bad move. Thinking back on some of my posts (going back to 2008!) technology and my experience has changed so much. How much of what I wrote about then, is actually still relevant? Even my own experience has changed so much in the last couple of years. I’ve gone from a very much Microsoft centric world, to a mixture of vendors, and solutions. Don’t get me wrong, I still think Dynamics CRM is an awesome product, but I also have love for others including Salesforce, and some of the smaller offerings like ZOHO.
And that brings me to the ethos behind this new and improved, or re-born blog – CRM as a concept.
So sit tight for a fun filled roller coaster of CRM emotions (Actually I just hope you read beyond this post!)
