FS#7708 - random folder advance file export

after using the Random Folder advance feature, i found i need to edit the resulting .dat file. but it is a dump of a ‘C’ structure, and is hard to edit. i have modified the random_folder_advance_config plugin to have commands that will export the .dat file to a text file, and will import a text file to the .dat file.

the commands are easy to use:

if you want to export the .dat file to a text file, then navigate to the random_folder_advance_config plugin and select “Export List to Textfile”. It will be put into “/.rockbox/folder_advance_list.txt”. You may then open the file on your desktop and edit.

if you want to import that edited text file, select “Import List from Textfile”, and it will import the list in “/.rockbox/folder_advance_list.txt” and resave the .dat file.

i have not done a lot of testing, but it seems to handle the conversions between .dat and .txt files pretty well. i haven’t noticed any problems.
