Find and Replace Utilities

Notepad (software)

It's tempting to just try using "Find and Replace" in notepad or wordpad if you are running Windows,. but don't do it if your file is large and/or you have a bunch of files all needing the same text replaced. Instead try a utility. The one's listed below are really good. I had 8 sql files that contained queries that all had to be edited the same way and Replace Text handled it quickly. I was trying to use Notepad on just one of the files and it didn't finish replacing the text although I ran it all night. the night before. I'm not getting paid for the endorsement but it came in real handy - and it's free.

Replace Text :: ecobyte :: software with a cause

Another free piece of software that does a similar job is Text Crawler.  Download and read more about it at:
