TEXTPIPE TURBO-CHARGES TEXT TRANSFORMATION, DATA CLEANSING AND WEB SITE MAINTENANCE

December 6, 1999 (Melbourne, Australia) - DataMystic Corporation releases TextPipe 4.4, its new text transformation workbench for business analysts, web site maintainers, publishers, system administrators and researchers.

TextPipe enables complex text transformations (filters) to be defined, tested and automated without programming. Filters include search/replace, converting between PC, Mac and Unix file formats, adding, removing, extracting and reformatting text.

"By enabling our customers to manipulate text without complex programming, TextPipe strengthens our strategic position in the automated editing market," according to Simon Carter, CEO of DataMystic.

Products like TextPipe are also an important part of the growing market for data cleansing and conversion tools, particularly in the lead up to Y2K. "More and more companies are using automated editors in bottom-line, mission-critical applications," says Carter. "TextPipe can be a major player in this arena."

Already, DataMystic has sold over 200 TextPipe licenses to Fortune 100, banking, government, universities, mining and manufacturing corporations, as well as hundreds of end users.
