TCDump: Thought Capture Device Transcriber
My current TCD
This script is extremely personal and specific: it effectively transcribes and
dumps the contents of my tape recorder as text to stdout. That's out. It's
extremely useful to me, especially in conjunction with the Unix
If you have a tape recorder that presents as a USB device, you could probably just make this work for you by:
- editing the path to the repository of recordings
- the regular expression describing the file name convention
- the strptime format in
converttcdfilenamethat turns the filename into a human-readable date.
Note that "Could not find the repo" is an error condition (exit status 1), but "No files found in repo" or "No files found meeting your criteria" or "No new files found since last transcription" are all exit status 0, matching the Unix tradition.
