Find & Replace It! 2.0.9 – An advanced search-and-replace solution for your files
Find & Replace It! is a high-end solution to find files and execute search-and-replace operations across directories. It allows performing very complex batch replacements inside text files of any size. It supports regular expression syntax and dozens of encodings. It has scripting capabilities which allow transforming on the fly the replacement text for every found string.
It even handles batch processing of the encoding of files, as well as of types of end-of-lines.
Here are five key points of Find & Replace It! that make the difference with its competitors:
- Handles more than 50 different kinds of text encodings. If your are stucked with some UTF-8 encoding, some Chinese contents or any others non ASCII encodings, Find & Replace It! is the solution for you. It also handles the different kinds of end-of-line.
- Handles huge files. If you want to process any kind of dump files containing tons of text, like a log of 10 GB, Find & Replace It! will do it for you.
- Provides a regular expression editor. This editor offers tools to easily build regular expressions even if you are a newby.
- Provides a find & replace preview. The preview window gives you an immediate feed-back that makes easy to check the impact of your replacement within any file without modifying its content. This is especially usefull whenever you are searching for a complex expression and you don’t want to replace it blindly in many files.
The GUI of Find & Replace It! consists of seven panes that you can arrange in any way you want. You can dock panes side by side, arrange them in tabs, or make them float. Adjust the windows layout to the way you like to work. Find & Replace It! comes with four pre-arrange layouts that can be customized the way you want depending on the size of your screen. You can switch from one layout to another in a simple click.
- The option “Use preferred text encoding if no acceptable codec is detected” does the opposite to what it should (uses the preferred codec on binary files, but not on text files).
- The preferred codec, used by default when detecting the encoding of a file for which no acceptable codec was found, is not anymore cached. Thus, running a detection with a new preferred codec, updates the default codec used on such a file.
- Fix several typos in the user’s manual.
