Odd search and replace question

Postby CSmith » Thu Oct 16, 2003 12:44 am

My boss has asked me to figure out how to use a text file to set the filter settings for TextPipePro. I am including an example of the text file, for ease of discussion:

[Script for Search and Replace]
Max Display Chars=512
String Color=255
Max Items Saved=5
File Color=16711680
Backup Path=
Num Detail Entries=5
Before Hit=<
After Hit=>
Max Reg Expr=32767
Write to Backup Dir=0
Unzip Dir=c:windowsTEMP
Show Files Without Hits=0
Display Replace String=0
Display File Stats=0
Reverse Filters=0
Min Size Filter=0
Max Size Filter=0
Min Date Filter=
Max Date Filter=
Skip Files Mask=0
Ignore Attributes=55
Keep file time stamp=0
One hit=0
Cache File List=1
Sort File Names=0
Sort Ascending=1
Append to output file=0
[Search /iw]
[Search /iw]
"job title"
[Search /iw]
[End of Search and Replace Script]

I am not sure what software was being used to generate these search and replace filters, as i was not a part of the staff at that time.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration on this matter.

Hi Chris,

That file isn't one that is used or understood by TextPipe, but you can certainly use a text file to load filter settings into TextPipe. Just check the help under the Command line settings.
