VecTripper is a Mac OSX trip generating program that is produced and maintained by tmkk (Infoseek). (Available here: http://tmkk.hp.infoseek.co.jp/tripper/ (Jap) or http://tmkk.hp.infoseek.co.jp/tripper/index_e.html (Eng)) I have nothing to do with them. There are several versions for several architectures and OSX versions. G4 and G5 should go for the older versions. 64-bit architectures should go for the newest version. It is open source and the source code is included with the compiled application.
The main window comprises of these elements.
Search text area (See section below).
Case sensitivity checkbox (Unchecked for case sensitive).
VecTripper menu. This is a pretty standard application menu and behaves like any standard application menu. Configuration options are the second down and can be reached by pressing Command + ,. To the right is shown the about box brought up by the top option.
Search using text entered into the search box.
Text search options. There are 5 options:
This number has something to do with the search, but I can't figure out exactly what it does. It could however be priority selection, I am still unable to determine that.
Check this box to enable evaluation of regular expressions in your search terms. Again this could be something more, as it seems redundant what with the 5 search options mentioned previously.
Radio button to select if you wish to search using a pattern.txt file (more below).
Logging options, check the box to log all returned hits. Choose a location on your drive for the log to be placed. It defaults to the desktop.
Radio button that causes only the passwords to be copied to the clipboard from your selection.
Radio button that causes the passwords and the tripcodes to be copied to the clipboard from your selection.
File menu. Only has 1 option, to close the application.
Edit menu. A standard menu. From top to bottom: Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Select all, Open the character palette (shown to the right).
The program outputs on screen in the results pane. The pane is sorted into 2 columns explained below (and previously if you didn't notice):
The program outputs to a file called VecTripper_out.txt located in the directory you chose for it in the settings, or on the desktop if you have not selected a location. A sample output is below:
◆sEArchIbwA <> #`J@|0nTc
◆TEXTDXr.Jg <> #vf(YQ7&A
◆HerE5Z5pLY <> #A6FypJlN
The file is not overwritten and new search results are concatenated to the end of the file either as they are found or at program close depending on settings chosen (information about settings can be found in the relevant section of this guide).
The file is never deleted nor overwritten, so it can grow quite large.
