    Default A utility for deleting unused characters

    is there some type of utility like a batch file that can delete characters not listed in the Select.def file? If so, what is it?

    (Eventual) WIPS:
    none, yet

    Default Re: A utility for deleting unused characters

    I suppose you could try this:

    - Install https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/
    - Copy and paste your entire list of characters from your DEF file into a new file in Notepad++
    - Open the find and replace menu (Press Ctrl+H). Make sure the search mode is set to Regular expression with with ". matches newline" disabled.
    - In the "find what" portion, paste in:
    Code:
    (.*)
    - In the "replace with" portion, paste in:
    Code:
    move "\1" "New folder"
    - Hit replace all.
    - Save this as a BAT file and place the BAT file in the same folder as where your characters are.
    - Make sure you create a new folder that's named "New folder" in the same folder as your characters and the BAT file, then run the BAT file.
    - All of the characters that are in your DEF file should've been moved into the new folder; any remaining characters are unused.

    Well, I can't attest this might work 100%. There might be some characters left over that aren't actually unused.
