I often need to do some day to day batch text operations like:
1. Changeing each line or specified line of a text file with a customized rule, such as adding 2 months for each date.
2. Extracting some specified characters/words/lines/columns from one or more text files, and paste it to other tools like excel.
3. Take some text from a list of websites, filter and combine them and output to a target file.
4. Downloading all exe, pdf or other user specifiled file types listed in a webpage or text file.
5. Detecting the encoding type of a text file, and convert a group of files to another encoding type for PDA or other system.
6. Renaming or copying a group of files with a customized rule, such as rename 'files.txt' to 'files.new.001.txt'.
7. Making statistics in a text file for the frequency of specified character combinations, or sorted frequency of all words.
8. Batch split files by user specified number of bytes/lines/columns, or paste files together in horizontal (line) or vertical(column) direction.
(... means more tasks such as bin/hex/decimal/oct conversion, html to text/links conversion, date format conversion, ip to contry conversion, batch file making, word auto-correction, ...)
I tried but could hardly find a software which is competent on 2 or even 1 of above tasks.
However, the formal release of "Replace Pioneer 2.0" completely changed the situation.
It is not reluctant to say that "Replace Pioneer" can finish all above tasks,
given a source text,
tell a rule,
push a "replace" button,
coming a success story...
"Replace Pioneer" always works in this way, elegantly, for whatever tasks.
