GRS is a program for creating a game report for the Internet Baseball League. GRS was written by Sean Sweda <email@example.com>, with assistance from Greg Speegle, Richard Dunlap, and Christian Beliveau. The source code is available at github <https://github.com/seansweda/grs> ** please submit bug reports on github ** <https://github.com/seansweda/grs/issues> RUNNING THE PROGRAM Usage: grs [ (-a afile) (-h hfile) | (-f cmdfile) ] outfile -a Used to read in the away team's lineup from an external file. ex: grs -a yesterdays_game.cmd todays_game -h Used to read in the home team's lineup from an external file. ex: grs -h my_lineup_vsRH game6 -f Used to read in commands from an external file. NOTE: This includes the lineups, thus -f is incompatible with -a and/or -h. ex: grs -f unfinished_game 1-1 -v Using this flag will cause grs to output the version number. (v2.3.0 and later) -o Used to overwrite existing output files. (v3.1 and later) The last operand is always the output file prefix. GRS will create the following files: <outfile>.sts - the stats <outfile>.pbp - the play-by-play <outfile>.cmd - the commands you typed in <outfile>.un# - a copy of .cmd created prior to executing undo The supplied shell script "grscat" (instructions at the end) can be used concatenate these files into one large file for GRS submission. WHAT IT DOESN'T DO GRS is not smart enough to figure out earned runs, you'll have to do that yourself when prompted. There are some esoteric events which GRS does not handle gracefully, if you find one please submit a bug report. ENTERING THE LINEUPS GRS uses space dilimited text. Thus, when prompted for player name, real team, and position, you should separate these by spaces. Example: Trammell DET ss When GRS is started, you will be prompted for a three letter team abbreviation for each team. This code will be converted to upper case. This program was created with the designated hitter in mind. If the pitcher bats in your league, you must enter him in the original lineup twice, once as a batter and once as a pitcher. As noted above, lineups may be read in from an external file. If you want to do this, make sure the lienups are in the same format as they appear in the .cmd file. COMMAND SYNTAX GRS accepts commands in the following syntax: (space delimited) event location baserunning event - a 2 letter event code, all of which are listed below location - many uses: e.g. location of a hit (gcf), or fielding on the play (6-3); can also be used to indicate a special kind of play like a H&R or IFR, eg. 6-3(IFR) or IFR(6) or lcf(H&R), etc. baserunning - in groups of 2, indicating where the player started, and where he ended up, eg. 12 means runner on first went to second. Use the letter 'b' for the batter, 'o' for out, and 'h' for home. There are default advances programmed in so you can skip the baserunning field if nobody advanced an extra base. The location is optional for all events. Some events require baserunning information. When entering errors make sure to list the player who made the error as the first character in the location field. (ex: "er 3/rg6 b1" for a dropped throw by the firstbaseman) This is a list of the events that the GRS program accepts: ph - pinch hit Use the same form as lineup entry. List the position the pinch-hitter will play next inning, or just "ph" if he is only pinch-hitting. pr - pinch run Use the same form as lineup entry. List the position the pinch-runner will play next inning, or just "pr" if he is only pinch-running. np - new pitcher Use the same form as lineup entry. Also, if you are playing with the pitcher batting, you can specify the position in the batting order where the pitcher will hit, and GRS will automatically insert him into the batting order. ex: Harvey FLA R 9 (this would put Harvey in the 9 hole) dr - defensive replacement dc - defensive position change Use the same form as lineup entry. The only difference between these two commands is that "dc" moves a player from one position to another and "dr" replaces a player. la - list the away team's lineup lh - list the home team's lineup un - undo Undo will allow you to undo any event, including a lineup change or the end of an inning. You can undo as many events as you wish, until you reach the first batter of the game. It is not possible to "undo" the starting lineups. en - end of inning eg - end of game cm - comment nj - enters in a "<runner> unable to get jump" comment, specify base of runner fa - enters in a "<pitcher> fatigues" comment in - enters in an "infield in" comment, can supply positions ic - enters in an "infield in @ 1b/3b" comment so - strikeout kd - strikeout, dropped third strike kc - strikeout, caught stealing ks - strikeout, stolen base bb - walk iw - intentional walk ci - catcher's interference hb, hp - hit by pitch wp - wild pitch pb - passed ball bk - balk sb - stolen base cs - caught stealing pk - picked off th - advance on a throw oa - out advancing on a throw ri - baserunner out due to interference di - defensive indifference 1b - single 2b - double 3b - triple hr - home run tp - triple play dp, gd - ground into double play fd - fly into double play ld - line into double play lo - line out fc - fielder's choice, batter reaches first hg - hard ground out rg - routine ground out sg - slow ground out hf - high fly po - pop out fp, pf - foul pop out sf - sacrifice fly sh - sacrifice hit lf - long fly wt, df - warning track fly (from deep fly chart) er - batter reaches on error ea - runner advances on error generic codes: fo - fly out go - ground out ************ UNDO WARNING ************ Undo is the most precarious part of our program, i.e. the most likely way to crash GRS. The current status is: Undo should to be 100% safe. The moral of the story is... use undo at your own risk. What is listed above is the "observed" pattern of behavior for undo. It *may* crash, possibly destroying your game report. If you don't want to try undo simply end the game and use copy-paste to re-input your commands, or copy/edit the .cmd file and re-run grs using the -f flag. GRSCAT grscat is a shell script I wrote to concatenate the files that GRS creates. I name my files according to week number and game number e.g. grs 8-1 - for week 8, game 1 grscat takes a single argument, the week number e.g grscat 8 - will cat all week 8 games into a file named "8" also, if you put mail header info into a file called .grscat in the same directory as the files you are grscat-ing, it will put it at the top of the file e.g. my .grscat is To: cc: Subject: ------- WEEK AWAY HOME
