The latest TextPipe Pro Beta can be downloaded from:

and from the pre-release link in the secure area.

Note: The beta link will not work if we aren't working on a beta release.

What's New in TextPipe v7.7.5 D
EP now handles back references to groups 1-99.
Fixed EP parsing of EBCDIC() function.
Expand Unsigned EBCDIC filters now output a space for invalid digits A-F.

What's New in TextPipe v7.7.5

* The user is now given the option to manually start Word or Excel if they are
not running when TextPipe needs them (with the Convert Word/Excel Document to
Text filters).
* Pattern matches can now name captured variables for use in the replacement
text e.g. searching for (?P<dollars>\d+) would then allow the macro @dollars
to be used in the replacement, and also as a global anywhere else in the
filter list.
* Far more complex patterns can be processed, with support for up to 99
captured variables, from $1-$99.
* Mainframe Copybook Wizard now allows underscores (_) and single quotes (') in
field names in 'XXX_XXXX 4 AN 1-4'-type copybooks.
Wizard now removes the content of fields called FILLER* .
Wizard now copes with repeated single-fields, as well as GROUPED OCCURS.
EBCDIC packed decimal fields can now have either a leading sign, trailing
sign or no sign.
New option to trim leading spaces and zeroes from fields.
New option to only expand numeric fields - Alpha fields are left unchanged.
This is useful when the target application can accept EBCDIC data but can't
handle packed decimals.
New option to allow COMP-3 to be unsigned.
Wizard can now cope with removing line numbers and commented copybook lines
(those with a '* ' in column 7).
Wizard can now cope with field definitions spread over multiple lines.
Wizard now remembers settings betting uses in a single session.
Expand Binary Number to EBCDIC filter now outputs a fixed width result.
* EasyPatterns now produce optimized perl regex output. Added EasyPattern
EBCDIC('') for matching EBCDIC values. Fixed parsing error with ASCII()
* Hex displays now all use '.' to replace space.
Query replace window now shows hex offsets for Hex Dump display.
* New File Shred filter to completely overwrite file contents.
* Split filter now can split at a pattern.
New Split Filter option to avoid overloading directories. When more than
10000 files are created, TextPipe starts a new folder.
* Filter list tree now auto-scrolls.
Filter list tree now allows mass enable/disable of filters with select and
* New Filters to Add File Headers/Footers. These filters do not output anything
when a restriction changes, so they only output once per file.
* Now can drag and drop filters between filter lists in different windows.
* Filters Add Header/Footer/Left Margin/Right Margin now always check for
@macros embedded in the text, regardless of whether the text comes from the
memo or an external file.
* Fixed bug with search/replaces where an internal conversion from ansi to
Unicode and back could result in high-ansi characters not being mapped
correctly back to their original characters. In particular, the ansi (tm)
symbol mapped back to TWO characters.
