Many thanks Bazzaboy... just getting started with a new Garmin and came across your script - worked a treat! (grr to the Garmin software folk - why couldn't they just include this import support?)
I'm having problems with this, can create the script but not sure what to do from there, where to save it etc. I get the following message when trying to save it so I don't know if I'm doing it right. I'm trying to import a 3:30 schedule for the New York marathon on 2nd November, any help would be much appreciated!
You cannot save this document with extension “.pl” at the end of the name. The required extension is “.scpt”.
The way I saved it was using TextEdit: Copy and paste the script contents into a new document, then use "Format->Make Plain Text".
Now I was allowed to choose the file extension as pl. (Select 'Don't append' if it offers to add a .txt extension as well).
I saved the script in my Documents directory, which was the same place I put the downloaded schedule.
If it still doesn't work I can e-mail you the schedule, just PM me an e-mail address.
Good luck with the training! I'm starting the 3:30 schedule too, for Abingdon in October.
Ok, done that, but this is now where I'm stuck, as the file won't import into training centre.
'then chmod a+x wkt2tcx.pl so it can execute then run as
wkt2tcx.pl rwschedule.wkt > rwschedule.tcx'
OK, so you need to open the 'Terminal' application to open a command line. Then type:
chmod a+x wkt2tcx.pl
wkt2tcx.pl rwschedule.wkt > rwschedule.tcx
Thats three separate commands, each with an enter afterwards. It assumes that both the rwschedule.wkt and the wkt2tcx.pl files are in the Documents directory. This should create a file called rwschedule.tcx that you can import on the mac.
Oh and one other thing. If the NOTE from the original script message isn't clear:
When copying the perl script to TextEdit you need to make a correction to the script. There is a line in the script towards the end that says
This needs to be edited so that there is a colon and a captial S after the xsi. (You can't paste the characters in the forum message because they get turned into a worried smiley face!)
Ok, I've follwed everything exact but get the following in Terminal.
-bash: wkt2tcx.pl: command not found
Think I'll give up, I've got my schedule on my Mac anyway via a PC but it would have been useful for future reference.
Nevermind, thanks for your help anyway!
Oh well, for anyone else looking I made an error in the third statement above. It should be:
./wkt2tcx.pl rwschedule.wkt > rwschedule.tcx
Ok, gave it one last bash and it works!
Glad to hear it worked for you, sorry you went though some pain and hassle to get there. I have now uploaded the script to my server. It can be downloaded via ftp
chmod a+x wkt2tcx.pl
You're welcome Smout, my next marathon is Edinbugh 2009 so see you on the start line
take it easy
Just a shout out to say a big THANK YOU for doing this. One wonders why such a simple task could not be sorted out by Garmin or RW. I followed this thread with the corrections noted and it worked first time.
Let the FLM09 training begin,
