Search and replace software

The Industry Standard in File Search and Replace Jobs.

HandyFile Find And Replace and Text Workbench are perhaps the best Windows utilities for people who have to edit multiple occurences of text at once in many text files, HTML pages, source code, logs or any other text data.

Using a powerful Regular Expression engine, it will enable you to find any irregular text by creating search patterns of any level of complexity. You can preview each replacement, perform batch search and replace operations (that is, apply many search/replace operations to a file at once). The collector feature will extract text from files for you, transform it and save it to one file or individual files. The major edition can search and replace files via FTP. It is what you would like a search and replace tool to be.

Beware of the clones - there are quite a few. Since its inception in 2001, HandyFile Find And Replace has grown into a mature application. Don't settle for anything less than the best.

But what's so great about it?

"We update tons of files daily. We correct our source code, user guides and technical documentation: essentially, we make changes to the files by editing text. We would be snowed under with work if it were not for HandyFile Find and Replace! It makes batch search and replace jobs a real breeze. We don't need any special package to create documentation for the programming interface and API's - the Collector searches files and creates the help topics using HTML templates. We have even fitted it to make partial translations of our documentation!"
Roald Litton, Content Editor
