Day 5: Importing Hand History Files

When I tell poker players about my software, the first question is “does it import hand histories?” The sample space is small, but it seems like this is a must-have feature.

I have something better than “importing” in my poker app. The user can use the preferences to add additional folders to the hand history search path. All hand histories are read freshly every time the app is started. All recognised hand history files in any specified folder are loaded when my poker app starts. Additionally all these folders are polled for updates.

And that’s what I implemented today.
