Formatted Strings. Need Transformations

  • Transformations on "Formatted Strings" for example "[DIRKEY /NoSlash]" might mean remove the trailing slash, "[DIRKEY /83]" would give you an 83 name, ""[DIRKEY /upper]", "[DIRKEY /substring 2,3" etc. This would remove the need for a lot of custom actions (and make MSIs more antispyware friendly). Perhaps some of the syntax could be based on Windows "environment" manipulations for substrings, left/right etc.
