What it does: GetLOCS.EXE operates on a list - in any (text) format - and extracts to file or screen ONLY those lines containing a FULL - 6 Chatacter - WWL.
I find that DXMon's `dxspots.txt` or a download from my local DX Cluster can be a valuable source of CALL <> WWL data.
Too often, however, there are abundant entries that do not contain relevant data - a full, 6 character WWL. This program
processes the input list and creates a new file of the records required. Output can also be "paged" to the screen.
Screen output may be reverse piped into the (DOS) FIND command to quickly search for a particular item:
FIND "G1OGY" < getlocs.exe c:\dxmonv92\dxspots.txt FIND "JO49MM" < getlocs.exe f:\data\cluster.txtGetLOCS will also painlessly "clean up" your TACLOG.TXT file - the output will contain no records with just Field+Square!
This version - for Win32 systems only - may be downloaded (320Kb) from the link at the foot of this page.
