Search and Replace Scripts
The Search and Replace Script function, with Advanced Settings, allows you to save search and replace operations for later use. Scripts can be used to perform multiple search &/or replace procedures across one or ore path & file mask combinations. They can be simple search/ replaces, grep style regular expressions, or binary operations. You can rearrange to order of operations in scripts and override one or more components of a script from the Search and Replace main screen. Program options can be (optionally) specified in scripts - useful for using unique settings that differ from your customary program settings.
Scripts are ordinary text files that can be edited by hand by advanced users who are familar with the required syntax.
Search and Replace Script Dialog
Search and Replace Advanced Script Settings, with a boolean expression evaluator, provide added control over which files are processed by the script. The "E1" & "E2" variables modeled here with a default "OR" expression refer the search/replace string pairs above.
A full compliment of operators is permitted,
AND OR > < = >= <= + - * /
you can use values for the number or replacement possibilities,
E1 > 2
and you can compare one variable to another,
E1 > E2
Expressions can be simple or complex:
E1 AND (E3 > 2 OR (E4 < (E2*2)))
You can also insert comment text into scripts and control program options in effect for the script.
