Search/Replace from a file taking a long time

Postby chano » Tue Jul 03, 2007 5:37 am


I am using TextPipe Pro (v 7.9.3) to manipulate web server logs. I am trying to replace the urls with user friendly names. I have a .csv file with the url - friendly name mapping that I imported using the Replace - Import a search/replace list filter. My import file has about 1400 urls. The log file I am processing is ~100MB. The replacing took a little over 30 minutes. Is this normal? Is there any way to make it execute faster?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Christine,

The problem is the 1400 replacements - if you could change this to a much smaller list of patterns you could make it much faster.
