replace within customer area of an line

Postby terror » Wed May 19, 2004 7:34 am

From what Ive read about the latest release of wordpipe I might be able to get this job done.
I just dont know exactly how to setup Wordpipe to do so....

I have an certain .TXT file in many subfolders..
On each line is an table split into two sections (</td><td>...)
the first section includes an linked image,
the second section includes some link text.
But the link text is where i need to change..

The link text is the same text as the link url without the file extension.

example:
<a href=http://domain.com/1/2/party.php>party</a>

The project Im working on is in this format, one per line, txt file:

... <a href=http://domain.com/1/2/may-15-party.php class=SmallHeaderBlue>may-15-party</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

Is it possible to format only the link text to, replace the "-" with an blank space, and remove the word "party":

... <a href=http://domain.com/1/2/may-15-party.php class=SmallHeaderBlue>may 15</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

Using "class=SmallHeaderBlue>" as an starting point and "</a></TD></TR></TABLE>" as an stopping point to search $ replace??

You mean TextPipe, not WordPipe!

Use an HTML restriction to restrict to the <A tag first.

Inside this, put two search and replaces - one for the dash and one for 'party'

Iam relieved to know this can be done with TextPipe! but i do have to ask if an more indepth instruction set could be wrote???

below I have shown an example line, each line after is very similiar except for the car model:

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr><td><a href="Auburn-4-44.php"><IMG src="image/bulletsm.gif" width="6" height="7" border="0" class="shakeimage" onMouseover="init(this);rattleimage();" onMouseout="stoprattle(this);top.focus();" onClick="top.focus()"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="Auburn-4-44.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">Auburn-4-44</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

SmallHeaderBlue">Auburn-4-44</a></TD></TR></TABLE>
after
SmallHeaderBlue">4 44</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

Hello

Im not finding this answer easy to do. I wish to learn how to search and replace within an area on each line.
... search type...search location...inside field codes...?? I dont know
Ive tried a few combinations, however no changes happened.
I do have MS WORD.

randum three lines from an txt file before:

<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1901-Oldsmobile-Runabout.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1901-Oldsmobile-Runabout.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1901-Oldsmobile-Runabout</a></TD></TR></TABLE>
<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1962-Oldsmobile-Jetfire.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1962-Oldsmobile-Jetfire.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1962-Oldsmobile-Jetfire</a></TD></TR></TABLE>
<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1966-Oldsmobile-Toronado.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1966-Oldsmobile-Toronado.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1966-Oldsmobile-Toronado</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

and after, with the result Im searching to do with your software:

<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1901-Oldsmobile-Runabout.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1901-Oldsmobile-Runabout.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1901 Runabout</a></TD></TR></TABLE>
<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1962-Oldsmobile-Jetfire.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1962-Oldsmobile-Jetfire.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1962 Jetfire</a></TD></TR></TABLE>
<table border="0"><tr><td><a href="1966-Oldsmobile-Toronado.php"><IMG src="bulletsm.gif" border="0"></a></td><td width="2"></td><td><a href="1966-Oldsmobile-Toronado.php" class="SmallHeaderBlue">1966 Toronado</a></TD></TR></TABLE>

more about this project..

I have many folders, for the above would be the "Oldsmobile" folder. I would be searching for "-" to replace with an blank space. And search for "Oldsmobile" and delete it. My other folders would be similiar except for the folder could be called "Acura".
