Terms in TGM legend and Glossary will be used in my pages, with the original definitions. If you encounter a confusing term, look in TGM legend first, then Glossary if it's not in TGM legend.

Row Numbering

In my pages, row numbering follows this convention:

  1. Vanish zone
  2. First visible row
  3. Second visible row
  4. ...
  5. Nineteenth visible row
  6. Twentieth visible row (last)

Row number 0 is the topmost row and successive rows are beneath it. In the listing above (which is TGM1's row configuration), there is a total of 21 usable rows.

Playfield Template Converters

The old playfield templates are problematic for both bandwidth and server load; the new <playfield> parser extension alleviates those problems, and these can convert pages to the new syntax:

Awk Version

I, Nightmareci, made this one; I put it in the public domain, so do as you wish with it.

#!/bin/awk -f

/\{\{ *pfstart *\}\}/,/\{\{ *pfend *\}\}/ {
	sub(/\{\{ *pfstart *\}\}/, "<playfield>")
	sub(/\{\{ *(pf|width[3-6]|tnet)row */, "") && gsub(/\||\}\}/, "") && gsub(/ /, ".")
	sub(/\{\{ *pfend *\}\}/, "</playfield>")


Python Version

I, Nightmareci, made this one; I put it in the public domain, so do as you wish with it.

#!/usr/bin/env python
import fileinput
import re

start = re.compile(r'\{\{pfstart\}\}')
row = re.compile(r'\{\{(?:pf|tnet|width[3-6])row *([^}]*)\}\}')
end = re.compile(r'\{\{pfend\}\}')
# Because we need more explicit control over moving between lines, we must use
# an actual FileInput instance.
files = fileinput.input()

for line in files:
	# Find the beginning of the playfield.
		# Replace '{{pfstart}}' with '<playfield>'
		print start.sub('<playfield>', line, 1),

		for line in files:
			# If the current line is '{{pfend}}', replace with
			# '</playfield>' and break out
				print end.sub('</playfield>', line, 1),
			# If this is not '{{pfend}}', this line is a row, so
			# convert it to the new syntax.
				# First, the template arguments are extracted
				# from the row, then the pipes, '|', are
				# removed, then spaces, ' ', are changed to
				# periods, '.'.
				print row.sub(r'\1', line, 1).replace('|',
						'').replace(' ', '.').upper(),
	# This line isn't the beginning of a playfield, so just print.
		print line,

Perl Version

DeHackEd made this one, and I'm not sure what conditions he has over it. I made some fixes to it, so it works on any type of row, not just pfrow:


while (<>) {
	if (/^(.*)\{\{pfstart\}\}(.*)$/) {
		print "$1<playfield>$2\n";
	elsif (/^\{\{(?:pf|tnet|width[3-6])row *\|(.*)\}\}$/) {
		$code = $1;
		@stuff = split(/\|/, $code);
		print join("", @stuff). "\n";
	elsif (/\{\{pfend\}\}(.*)$/) {
		print "</playfield>$1\n";
	else {
		print "$_\n";
