Catalog question

How do I get a catalog either by author or by title with nothing else. Even when I get a catalog with the authors I also get the series info - which I don't want.

Thanks - John

When you have the catalog dialogue box open there is the option to check/un-check what you want to include ie. title, series etc

There's an option to create a series section when you create a catalog. If disabling that doesn't get you what you want, try using calibredb catalog in the command line and specify only title and author fields.

I tried the uncheck thing - no help. I read about the command line option somewhere but I will have look it up again. I don't even know where I would enter that stuff after I figured it out - in the search box?

Nothing ever comes easy John

Uhm, no- in your operating system's command line.

I thought it was the special job control card atr the start of the deck.

Between MAC's and Winblows, the current generation has lost the understanding of how to really wring out the power of a computer..

The GUI is a "shortcut" to those underlying commands.

Wait, what? I didn't get that reference.

Yeah, I'm amazed at how lucky I was that my very first personal computer was a 8087 (back in 1996, but hey, it was my own). I hand-built every x86 system there was (except for the 80286) up to the Pentium 1 (and a few since then, but I skipped more models), trashed DOS and several flavors of Windows quite often and reinstalled more times than I care to count. All that has taught me the practical side of how computers work really well. I think that's what most kids are missing today.
(In between I also taught myself how to program, that's another thing many modern users neglect.)

IBM Mainframe, Key Punched cards, Punch card readers with Operators...


Each line of code was on a separate card.

The Job control told the system about what would follow: Program to use... Where to send the output (Punch other cards, line printer:
NB Mainframe jargon, you set your "Punch Device" to a Printer, Tape, Card punch and later on DASD volume, CRT.

There was an "end" card in the deck,

there may have been "data cards"

Been a long time (c 1976)
