I say: Searches for and replaces strings in text files. Its easy drag'n'drop operation sometimes makes this simpler to use than BK Replacem, particularly for substitutions involving strings which span a number of lines. Not strictly freeware, (BK Replacem is) but as it's unlimited shareware I will continue to recommend it.

They say: "The new version of Multi-Replace provides an even more powerful find/replace capability than the original. It can search and replace text in any file, or in groups of files.

Multi-Replace is a search-and-replace tool which allows you to choose a group of files and do a search-and-replace operation on all of those files simply by pressing one button. As with search-and-replace functions in a word-processor, you can replace all instances of a piece of text, or whole words only, and you can make the operation case-sensitive or not as you wish.

Multi-Replace will also automatically back up your files in any location you choose before changing them, and will restore the originals if you change your mind about the changes you have made.

The program can store the jobs you have done, including the list of files you searched, from any number of directories. You can configure your own file types, and the program even supports wildcard replace operations.

Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. Multi-Replace version 2 is distributed in its full version, and is not disabled in any way. You may use the program for a trial period of 30 days; after that, if you wish to continue working with it, you will have to register"

Please Don't Contact Me...

About any app NO LONGER in my 50 Favourites... I simply don't want to know...

For help... Please don't contact ME for help using any program. I only recommend it, I don't (and can't) offer a free support service for every program I recommend.
What you can do for yourself is...if you have any problems with anything I've recommended, contact the author of the program, or Google it.

Re: broken links... Links change. I have stated above the date on which I last checked the links. When I next update this section I'll check all the links again. So please don't contact me if the links don't work - I'll find out eventually.
What you can do for yourself is... if the links I give are broken, try searching for the program using Google or FileMirrors - that's what I'd do!

Re: it's not freeware! All of the programs I recommend in this section are 'free' in the sense that they were at one time distributed as fully functional software with no payment required for their continued use. However... some software companies withdraw their freeware, or offer programs as freeware for a short period before 'upgrading' them to shareware. So please don't contact ME to say any program I recommend is no longer freeware. I'll find out when I next update.
What you can do for yourself is... search the net... As I understand it, if you can find the original freeware distribution, and it still works, there's nothing to prevent you from legitimately using it. You could try the Last Freeware Version or OldVersion.com.
