Here is the output from the three file types with one program.

The program automatically detects the file type.

Wonderful job, Wayne !

Does anyone know if history.lin files store the scoring condition in any way?

It doesn't.
To know the scoring condition you need to read the
Bridge Base Online - Hand Viewer.htm
page, on which you clicked to get the history.lin

I discovered while writing this post that hard spaces do not cut and paste very well from the post preview.  They turn into soft spaces :-(

I saw that reading the page source. But if they actually turned into soft spaces, a serie of those spaces would be displayed as a single space, which doesn't happen.
The source shows soft spaces but they are hard ones. A mystery.

I discovered a 4th type of lin file just now.

If I look at a movie from a played table and save that to my hard drive.

This file has some different characteristics.

I think I have updated the program to cope but I have not double checked that it still works with the previous file types.

I clicked on a tourney, chose a table, clicked on MOVIE, on SAVE, and got this file (I deleted names):

vg|Uploaded Deal,,I,7,7,,,,,|rs|,,|pn|....|pg||qx|o7|
md|1SK964HA62DKT763C9,SA2HJT975DJ9C7543,
SJ87DAQ52CAQJ862,SQT53HKQ843D84CKT|
sv|b|
pn|........|
mb|---pp1C1H2D2H3D3H4Dppp-|pg||
pc|SA|pc|S7|pc|S3|pc|S4|pg||
........

The difference with this other movie.lin (I can't remember how I got it !) :

vg|Uploaded Deal,,I,3,3,,,,,|rs|5CWxx=,,|pn|....|pg||qx|o3|
md|1S3HJ76432DAQ32CA3,SA2HAQ9D4CQJ96542,
SKJT9875HT85D97C7,SQ64HKDKJT865CKT8|
sv|e|
mb|---1H2C4H5Cdrppp|
pn|.....|pg||
pc|H5|pc|HK|pc|H2|pc|H9|pg||
.....

and a deal created using MOVIE and SAVE :

vg|,,P,1,1,,0,,0|
rs|,,|
pn|,,,,,,,|
mp|,|
pw|,,,|pg||
qx|o1|st||md|3DAKQJT98765432,CAKQJT98765432,SAKQJT98765432,HAKQJT98765432|nt||sv|0|pg||

is the place of sv| and second pn| tags.
Is that what you mean ?

When BBO standardise its lin format, I will dance in the street.

I didn't look that closely my program was stumbling on some end of lines.

OK, Wayne.

I understand it was a problem with some lin files made of few long lines, and other made of a succession of shorter lines with carriage return and linefeed.

This is a test of the preview function
First I write 4 bids separated by 6 soft spaces :
1 1 1 1

Then I write 4 bids separated by 6 hard spaces :
1     1     1     1

I will read the source made by BBO Forum software for this post with preview and then without preview, and see if there is a different result for the first auction line and the second one.

Now without preview :
This is a test of the preview function
First I write 4 bids separated by 6 soft spaces :
1 1 1 1

Then I write 4 bids separated by 6 hard spaces :
1      1      1      1

Results of the test :
The preview replaces & #160;  by a space, which is displayed as a hard space.
If you don't use the preview : & #160; are preserved in the source.
But in both cases if you cut and paste a post you loose the hard spaces, because cut and paste of a html page doesn't cut and paste the html tags but the text.

Negative voting is now enabled. Limits for both + and - votes increased to 20/day.

Vote away, your votes may be more important than you think.

You can now see your voter's names.
But I think I mentioned this may be removed if it leads to unpleasant results.

The problem with votes right now is that you don't really know what they are used for, and even if voters knew exactly what they are used for, they can still vote for whatever they want according to an individual agenda that isn't the "purpose" of the vote. But we never had a stated purpose either, except that it was for indicating good posts/posters.
The idea was that this could be used to make particularly good posts appear more prominently, *somewhere*. Our problem is we haven't been able to do this. If voters know what the vote would be used for (ie, make a post appear in a very prominent and significant position) would it make voters vote responsibly? This is what we plan for votes and the best BBF posts...

Downvoting is no longer enabled (You can still vote up posts).

There is a newcomer group for all newcomers. After they've been around a while and posted a bit, they will be promoted to full members.
(The newcomer criteria may need adjustment at times.)
