Boring Log Check Program

BoringLogCheck is a program for checking the format of a single Boring Log TXTfile (.txt) or a folder of Boring Log TXTfiles. The program can be run in two modes:
(1) interactive mode launches a dialog-driven interface that presents the user with standard windows directory/file navigator capabilities, including integrated display and printing of the warning messages from the logfile, or
(2) command-line mode allows the program to be run as a command-line executable, receiving a single argument for either a directory name or a file name.

BoringLogCheck will parse Boring LogTXT (.txt) files and generate a logfile listing all errors and warnings with the format of the file. The program will also output a message at the end, listing the number of files with valid format, the number of files with format errors, and the number of files with format warnings.

Download Current Version
• Version 2.5.4 Package (*.zip 8.69 MB) release date 02/24/2011
BoringLogCheck 2_5_4 changes the validation rules between D10_SIZE, Atterberg results, and UCT results.  Previously, an Error was reported if a sample had a D10_SIZE and also had Atterberg or UCT results.  New validation allows ML and SC samples to have D10_SIZE, Atterberg, and UCT test results.  Program generates a Caution if any other CLASS_1 value has D10_SIZE, Atterberg, and UCT test results.  Rules for CLASS_1 and CONSISTENCY cross-validation were also modified.  An Error is now reported if SC classified samples have a CONSISTENCY value.  Only CL, CH, OH, and PT classified samples can have a CONSISTENCY description.
