This program is gold. Very easy to use, and powerful. I would only add that the confirm dialog should be asynchronous so that the user can examine the results before issuing the confirm. It also would be nice not to have to install it, for portable use, but that's minor.
Thanks much for an excellent utility!
I rated this a 4 prior, meant to give it a 5.
This program is a great text find and replace tool for anyone who needs to replace large amounts or multiple amounts of text in documents. You can also add to or add after a block of text and it also works with batch files which is a great feature. You can choose multiple folders or file, it shows you replacements in the bottom viewer window and works fairly fast. I found this extremely useful and may keep it around for a long time.
Comprehensive regular expression support: regex tester, regex "library" to save your frequently-used expressions.
Can preserve timestamps of modified files.
Quick, straightforward, good interface, gets the job done with no surprises.
Hint: uncheck the "show splash screen" option ;).
Best multiple file text changer I've used. Simple function but works well.
I'm currently working with a game mod, and was forced to change some values in my files. Handmade it would have been an almost impossible task, so I started to look for help. TextCrawler made more than 1500 changes in 1460 files... trust me, I WAS skeptical if it all would work. But it did, and the whole rewriting took only a minute or two, the first time I used this program. If you need to change content in files, try this one.
TextCrawler does everything it says and works like a dream. I highly recommend this product and there is no reason to look any further.
