TextPipe™ Standard is the reduced feature set version of TextPipe Pro. Please see the Pro vs Standard Comparison chart for more details of the differences.

Winner of the SIA award as Best Application!

TextPipe Standard provides a subset of filters at a reduced cost. The Standard Edition still provides full End Of Line conversion between DOS/Mac/Unix files, multi-file support, and the most commonly used functions. If the Standard Edition does not fully meet your needs, the Pro Edition can be purchased as a form of upgrade.

FAST Data Manipulation! - An Automated Text Tool on Steroids!

Process Information From Anywhere
TextPipe handles both text and binary files with equal ease. File formats you can convert and extract data from include:
  • HTML, XML and other structured documents from the WWW
  • Fixed length, CSV and Tab-delimited sequential files
  • Unix, Macintosh, Mainframe and PC end-of-line formats
  • ASCII, ANSI, Unicode and EBCDIC text files
  • Inside Zip files, and the new Microsoft Office 2007 formats DOCX, XLSX, PPTX
  • Rich Text Files (RTF)
  • Files with tagged data fields
  • Downloaded text files (e.g. news retrieval, financial, real estate)
  • Screen scrapes and captures
  • Structured and unstructured reports of any size or dimension
  • Framemaker MIF files and more.
Lightning Fast Search and Replace
TextPipe offers a variety of powerful searches:
  • Exact search (including multi-line and binary character search)
  • 'Sounds-like' search
  • Fuzzy search (great for finding typing errors)
  • Pattern or wildcard search
  • Search/replace lists and more.

The replacement text can include all or part of the original text or a re-arrangement of it, and the case of the replacement text can be automatically altered to preserve the case of the original text. The found text can be used as a constraint for further filters, such as by converting it to Upper Case, performing further search and replaces inside the replacement text or even a database or dictionary lookup.

Manipulate Precise Sections of Text
You can restrict changes to line, column and field ranges, Lines Matching a Pattern and Lines Not Matching a Pattern. You can combine restrictions, for example, to alter a specific line and column range. You can also apply further text manipulations to the Replaced Text in a Search and Replace operation, such as by making the Replacement Text UPPERCASE.

  • There is no limit on file size - so you can process files larger than 10 Gigabytes
