Minitrue, a Search / Replace Utility
MiniTrue is a versatile program which combines a fast and powerful
search/replace functionality with a full-featured textviewer, enabling quick
and efficient browsing, searching and/or modification of a large number of
files. MiniTrue can operate interactively and prompt to see if a replacement
should be made or it can make all desired substitutions automatically.
MiniTrue can also print out matching lines in the manner of the utility
grep. If no strings to search for are present, MiniTrue functions like the
pager program less.
Version 2.0 offers many improvements over version 1.5. The source has been
completely rewritten, making possible ports to Linux and 32-bit DOS which do
not suffer from the memory limitations of the original version. Extended
regular expressions are supported and much more functionality has been added
to the text viewer.
Many additional improvements have been made.
This project is currently on hiatus. I want to make some minor changes and
try to compile a 32 bit windows version, but those are the only
modifications I have the time and motivation to make. Feel free to send any
bug reports or suggestions about this program, but I make no guarantee I
will act on them.
Jan 7, 2003: Moved to idiotsdelight.net location. The ISP it was
previously hosted on went bankrupt.
