Find & Replace It! is a high-end solution to find files and execute search and replace operations across multiple files. 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. If you regularly work with text files, if you make websites, or develop software, Find & Replace It! allows you to maintain and transform the contents of your files in a few clicks. Do you have to rename a page in a website and thus need to edit URLs in hundreds of files? Simply select the root directory of your website and indicate the string to replace. Then, the replacement can be made across your entire website in just one click. Do you need to modify files headers in some parts of the source code of your application? Find & Replace It! allows to finely filter the files to be processed or not. It also provides tools to introduce contextual information into your replacement string, for instance: the current date, the name of the file where the replacement is in progress, etc. For each batch-replacement, it provides statistics about the number of replacements within every modified file, and counts the number of processed files. Of course, all classical features of such a tool, like the possibility to save your job, backup modified files, export the replacement report, and much more are available. # Handles more than 50 different kinds of text encodings. If you have troubles with any kind of Unicode data like UTF-8 encoded files, any Chinese contents, or any other non ASCII contents, 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 files containing tons of text, like a log of 10 GB, Find & Replace It! will do it for you. # Provides a preview for found and replaced text. 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 useful whenever you are searching for a complex expression and you don't want to replace it blindly in many files. This is of course an excellent regex tool, that let's you easily test your regular expressions. # Makes it possible to dynamically adjust the replacement text. It provides many ways of dynamically adjusting the replacement text according to the context. For instance, it is possible to reuse a fragment of the found expression into the replacement text, do arithmetic operations on found text, insert the path or the name of the processed file, apply conditional operations on the replacement string (JavaScript interface), manipulate dates, etc.
