Text search & replace utility Replace Text  1 stars

Text search & replace utility

Version: 2.2
Size: 572 kb
CHECKED: 11/04/2009

I say: Uses regular expressions to search and replace multiple strings in text files. Highly configurable, with excellent log, backup and batch controls. Doesn't redate your files (unless you want it to) so is very useful for making changes in every page of a web site, without all the pages ending up as modified on the same date. Unfortunately strings including line endings require the regular expression mode, so while undeniable more powerful it is sometimes not as convenient as Multi-Replace.

They say: "Welcome to the wonderful world of ReplaceEm, your premiere-quality, freeware string-replacing utility for Windows. At its core, ReplaceEm is essentially a text search-and-replace program. However, unlike the search-replace functionality of a standard text editor, ReplaceEm is designed to operate on multiple files at once. And you need not only perform one search-replace operation per file -- you can setup a list of operations to perform. If different groups of files need to have different operations performed on them, this is no problem either. You can also specify a backup file for each file processed just incase the replace operation didn’t do exactly what you wanted.

When specifying which files to be included in a particular replace operation, you can add one file at a time, or you can tell ReplaceEm to use all the files from a particular folder -- or the files from that folder that match a given file filter (such as *.txt or *.html). You can even specify to include all files that don't match a particular filter. Additionally, you can decide to include the files from all subfolders of that folder.

One very powerful feature of ReplaceEm is that you can specify that the destination of the altered file be some other location than where it originally came from. This is handy, for instance, if you want to have some search-replace operations performed on a particular file and have it saved to a destination file, and then want to have different search-replace operations performed on the same file, and have it saved to a different location.

Another powerful ability of ReplaceEm is to make use of regular expression search-replace operations, as well as range search-replace operations. These are, in fact, so powerful and complex that most users will probably not need to mess around with them. They are, however, vital in certain situations, and turn ReplaceEm into a much more intelligent text processor.

When the replace operations are performed, a log file is generated to let you know if everything went ok; Information about which files were processed, where they were saved to, where they were backed up to, and how many replace operations were performed on them are provided. "

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
