This workflow is for processing a text list of items separated by a single character. You set the character and the direction of the search, and the workflow will give you one at a time.

lp:save This sets the list of items. This is tied to a hotkey that takes the current selection. If there is nothing on the input, the command will grab the clipboard to use. Or, the user can type in what they want.

lp:next This gives the next item. This is tied to a hotkey as well.

lp:forwardbackward This sets the direction of the lookup. If backwards, the last item will be given in lp:next. If forwards, the first item in the list will be given.

lp:setseparator This sets the separator that will be used to process the list.

lp:reset This sets the list processing back to the original list. Therefore, lp:next starts fresh.

lp:show This will show the list on the screen for the user to see.

lp:length This will show the number of items in the list separated by the given separator.

lp:left This will show the number of items left to be shown.

lp:shown This will show how many items have been shown.
