Ok, I'm using the interactive sorter to detect the recipe, this is simply a number of cobblestone, in my test case just 1. using
item = sorter.analyze()
should give my a table with values in it but the keys aren't integers and I dont know how to access them properly I guess. How is that done?

list of keys I need:
amount, stringId

An awesome update! I figured out that the keys act like functions eg. item.stringId is what I needed.

It seems my manager program is also working as intended.

And I'm quite close with the infuser program. I just have to write a method to do a little additional parsing since the me bridge needs a slightly different string
"mod:name meta" instead of "mod:name:meta" should be an easy fix!

So turns out I'm having trouble splitting my itemname string and reforming it to be compatible with the me bridge. Specifically:
splititem = split(itemname, ":")
  if #splititem == 3 then
	itemname = tostring(splititem[1])..":"..tostring(splititem[2]).." "..tostring(splititem[3])
using this splitting function:
function split(s, delimiter)
  result = {};
  for match in (s..delimiter):gmatch("(.-)"..delimiter) do
	table.insert(result, match);
  return result;

I'm guessing I can't use : as a delimiter, probably because its a standard expression or something.
So could anyone write me a function that takes a string and replaces the second ':' (if it exists) with a space?

function stripSecondColen( str )
  return table.concat( { str:match( "([^:]+:[^:]+):?(.*)" ) }, " " )

Cool thanks! Just to make sure since I dont understand it much, if there isn't a second : what will this function do?

Hmmm. So I'm still crashing...


So my program does send the
"Get "..tostring(quantity).." "..itemname
But at some point between there and the transmit three lines later there is a crash that exits the infuser program.
This is all in the grabitem function and the item Im getting is Thaumcraft:ItemResource:14 which is Salis Mundis.
Could it be the modem.transmit crashing?

Again, if you aren't getting an error message telling you the problematic line, then you can pinpoint it by distributing print statements throughout your script.

Right I did that. with my modem transmits, I cant really put a moniter on it since it has all its sides used

Then do the smart thing, and print to the screen itself, and not modem.transmit.

It would not be able to do a full infusion since it has a modem on top, needs to output 3 redstone signals and has the bridge on the other side, its also in a cheat free server. I will try a test setup in a ssp creative world
