TextCrawler

Find and replace text across multiple documents

One of the most handy features of any text editor worth its salt is the Find and Replace funtion. This is normally very practical when working within the same document, but what happens if you wish to change the same word or value in several different documents? The first option is to open every document and perform a Find and Replace in each one, the second is to install TextCrawler. The program saves you having to open all of the documents that you want to modify. The best thing about the program is its easy handling. You simply select the folder containing the files you wish to modify, indicate the format (text or DOC) and the words or values that you want to replace and TextCrawler will automatically do the rest. This makes the program especially great for editing values within source code across multiple web pages. Perhaps the developer might like to go one stage further and turn it into a Dreamweaver extension or an OpenOffice add-on. View full description
