Melbourne, Australia – July 29, 2004 - DataMystic announces TextPipe Pro 7.0, its enhanced industrial strength text conversion, transformation and report mining workbench.

TextPipe 7.0 is the first application to offer automated Unicode search and replace, automated Unicode pattern matching and replacing, and over 150 conversions between Unicode and encodings such as Japanese Shift-JIS and Chinese BIG5.

TextPipe is used extensively by mail houses, publishers, banks, federal and state government agencies, universities, law courts, systems integrators, database consultants and IT consultants – in 62 countries - anyone that routinely deals with text.

TextPipe handles structured and unstructured reports, comma-delimited, tab-delimited and fixed-width data, HTML and XML, spooled print files and text files of any size and dimension.

And it's fast too – with Woolworths (South Africa) reporting 400MB per minute throughput.

TextPipe provides a single point of maintenance for all text processing tasks. TextPipe's visual development environment makes it easy to define and test tasks without coding. TextPipe can restrict the scope of a change to line and column ranges, CSV fields, lines matching a pattern, HTML/XML tags and attributes, and combinations of these.

TextPipe can be automated, embedded, or scripted from your favorite programming language.
