Re: Extracting text from HTML, replacing with random codes

Hi Simon,

Remember that I need to output 2 files, the transformed HTML file + a text file with the extracted text. How do I do that without the secondary output?

Re: Extracting text from HTML, replacing with random codes

My question now is, could I run this stuff with Textipe Lite? I'm only using "Find perl patern" and secondary output functions in the filter I described, but I need search/replace list (with tab delimited text file) to reverse the process. Does Textpipe Lite have that? The Standard and Pro versions ...

Re: Extracting text from HTML, replacing with random codes

Then I output this (only tried output to clipboard for testing). The return at the end makes sure each code/text pair goes t...

Extracting text from HTML, replacing with random codes

I'm wondering if Textpipe can do this. I want to extract every line of text from a HTML file, replacing each with a short (5 char max) random or sequencial code, and output every code + text line to a separate text file. So, I have an HTML file like this: <.....> text line 1 </.....> <.....> text li...
