AMAZON Integration!!!

Sat, 23 Aug 2003 01:19:17 -0000

new for version 0.6.0

"Get from Amazon"!!!!
Simply point your browser to the book summary page of the
book in question. Then all you have to do is click "Get from
Amazon", and MLAGEN will automatically do the rest.

Tech info:
MLAGEN will connect to your running instance of IE, grab the
URL of the page you are currently viewing, retrieve the entire
source code for that page, and with VBScript RegEx for
Delphi, parse that text to output the First and Last Names,
Title, Publisher, and Year of Publication.

Copy to MS Word working!

Fri, 08 Aug 2003 19:59:36 -0000

Just fire up Microsoft Word, Generate a works cited entry, then click "Copy to word processor", and Voil! Switch back to Word, and you'll see your beautifully formatted entry, underlined/italicized if necessary!

Note: If the works cited entry is longer than one line, MLA format says that each subsequent line should be indented to easier discern between entries.

"Get Info From Browser"

Thu, 24 Jul 2003 18:19:09 -0000

I finally got Internet components to work from ICS by Francois Piette! Thus, MLA Auto-Generator now brings to you Online Updating and "Get Info From Browser" for added convenience!

Online Update can be accessed by clicking the About button, then the Online Update button.

"Get Info From Browser" is a function for the entry of information from websites. Simply select "Website" as the type of source, then click the "Get Info From Browser" button in the middle of the screen. MLAGEN will parse the Title, URL, Last Modified Date, and Accessed Date for you!

note: Some websites(such as SourceForge) do not send the Last-Modified header, so that part will not always be available.

If you want to try out this feature, one website that completely supports this is

Have fun!

Online Update feature!

Wed, 23 Jul 2003 21:18:16 -0000

I added a tool that looks to be useful in ensuring that users always have the latest version of MLA Auto-Generator with the most functionality.

To access Online Update in v0.4.9, run MLAGEN, click the About button in the top right, then click Online Update. The program will then compare your current version with the version contained on the SourceForge servers. If your file is outdated, the program will ask if you want to download the new file.

Right now, each successive version of MLAGEN has a different filename, so upon downloading a new version, please update any shortcuts created to match the new file!

Soon to come...

The ability to search for a book on Amazon or the Library of Congress, copy the URL, and have MLA Auto-Generator completely fill out all the needed input boxes and generate a works cited entry.

0.4.5 out + breakthroughs!

Sat, 28 Jun 2003 20:38:49 -0000

Version 0.4.5 is out with huge code optimizations as well as a more intuitive, categorized list of sources to choose from.

In other news, now every single version of MLAGEN is available. I went through the trouble of re-compiling each and every version and beta and naming them with their respective versions so that SourceForge could differentiate them when it came time to download.

So now the old versions are available!

version 0.4.5 nearing completion

Wed, 25 Jun 2003 02:31:51 -0000

There are several code enhancements that not only make it easier for me to continue development but also reduce the size of the already-small program, so all of you can shave off milliseconds in downloading it.

32+ types of sources!!

Sat, 21 Jun 2003 00:29:42 -0000

Upon inclusion and completion of the coding for all 32+ types, MLA Auto-Generator will be THE most comprehensive source of works cited formatting on the web! And that's in addition to its standing as cheapest MLA service on the Net!!

Beta 7 - list of coming supported types

Fri, 20 Jun 2003 02:22:19 -0000

There are now 32 types of sources which will be supported some time in the near future. As of now, about 7 work, but by next release, look for that number to be at least 20.
