If you're a big fan of Wordpad but wish it was a little more advanced, then without doubt, TextPipe Pro is for you.

With TextPipe Pro you can specify all your text processing needs through one application rather than having to remember and manage several text editors, command line tools, custom scripts and Word and Excel macros. In a nutshell, TextPipe Pro basically makes it fast and easy to convert, transform and re-form data in text files including HTML and XML documents. Probably the most outstanding feature of TextPipe Pro is that it is very fast and can handle files of unlimited size. TextPipe Pro is also remarkably efficient at handling multiple tasks simultaneously. The advantage of this is that you only need to learn how to use one tool rather than several to do multiple tasks. For those that have invested a lot of money or are planning to invest a lot of money in an editor, it's also a much cheaper solution. If the developers claims are right, it certainly packs an impressive punch when it comes to making corrections. They report that in a recent speed trial, TextPipe Pro made the same number of changes to a document in seconds that took MS Word hours.

A very powerful all in one text editor, cleansing and conversion tool although it will only come into it's own if you're dealing with very large documents and tasks.

Search and replace - Automate changes to huge text files and huge groups of text files

TextPipe is a stream editor that performs complex changes to massive text files. It updates 100s of files per second while other editors die trying to even load the file. It is designed for web designers, developers, publishers, banks, government and industry - for anyone who needs to deal with large data files in CSV, Text, HTML, Tab, XML and more.

TextPipe provides a single point of maintenance for all your automated text processing tasks. You learn one tool, rather than learning four or more different ones - and their associated languages, command line options, debugging schemes, idiosyncrasies and operating system differences and dependencies.

TextPipe is far less costly to learn, use, develop with and maintain than cobbling together multiple generic tools and custom scripts to achieve one end. It's a Swiss army knife combining the best of perl, awk, grep, sed, and many other less common text processing tools. You'll be productive with TextPipe in minutes, not days.
