Good thing I'm a bad programmer then

Main reason for me is for learning purposes. I really like how the program works and I'm interested to learn how it utilizes all these specialized tools under the hood to automate many manual tasks easier having both an easy to use CLI and GUI that work quite well. It's an unique program and I actually haven't come across any equivalent open source chapter editing program with as much versatility and usefulness as yours.

Of course I think open source software has many benefits too like it's easier to trust than closed source software, program and code longevity, easier for others to find bugs, contribute code and more.

seehazy, the numbering of titles can be done in a text editor or similar environment with the support of regular expressions (regex, patterns that can represent one or many characters) of a specific kind, POSIX syntax they might be called. I use TextPad version 5, later versions support another type of regex.
Find: e=
Replace with: E=\i.

I had also no knowledge about programming, but with Lazarus it was very easy to learn.
I'm sure there are other easy to learn languages but for me is it important to have no dependencies like .net or java or python or restrictions to an OS.

I agree with you.

Apart from the fact that the cE code is not very nice and contains a lot of German comments,
a database password is also hidden in the code.
I wouldn't want to make this password public.

Why not just remove the password when publishing source code? Also, some open source software I know which use passwords just use a local config file or environment variable to store the password and read from that instead so that may be a better method.

The source file required an extention, in my case, txt. You might want to mention this in the help or add an error message for this.
Anyone on Windows might find this pattern useful.
Code:
@echo off
set f=[Path\]name.txt
set in=23.976
set out=25
set path=
for %%f in ("%f%") do %Path%chapterEditorCLI -f %in% %out% %%f

cECLI is very old, and I developed it under Windows 7 and there is always an extension for the files(I thought).
In the first post all examples with files uses an extension for the input files.

But now I know on Linux is an extension not always present.

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.27 is available.
Windows
Linux


It continues with a new version of the cE.
I was able to complete 2 user requests and there is a small improvement for the chapter database.

When uploading the Star Trek Voyager series it was annoying that the title check had to be confirmed continuously,
because the title is always the same.

Code:
Change chapterEditor

added    &
fixed    *
improved #
changed  %


rev1.27 2021-02-24
// chapterEditor
& Deletion of chapters with identical time stamps (not for the Converter)
  - adjustable time tolerance (settings -> chapter editors)
  - Time tolerance = 0: only chapters with identical times are deleted
  - Time tolerance > 0: the following chapters are deleted
  - Time tolerance < 0: the previous chapters are deleted
  - Matroska: applicable to one or all editions
  - applicable to all tabs at once


// Chapter naming
& keep existing chapter names
  - an existing chapter name can be expanded with a chapter number

* the name list did not work for multiAVCHD editor


// Chapter database
# Upload: When checking the title name (whether it already exists) the episode text is also checked
  - simplifies the uploading of a series
