"Fantasticly versatile search functions"

March 27, 2007  |  By PBR-StreetGang

 |  Version: Actual Search & Replace 2.6.9

Pros

This program is happy to search a near limitless number of documents (limited, it would seem, only by the amount of ram you have in your PC) with a great number of refinements allow you to find exactly what you are looking for. Replacements are a simple button click. The beauty of this program is its reporting function (not much use if you’re just interested in it for its coding capabilities but amazingly graphic for business purposes). This is one of the best thought out programs I have come across and it’s a joy to use.

Cons

It is unable to search within its own results. Hopefully this will arrive in later versions. Also, I have found that once the program has been registered it will occasionally refuse to pick up any results. The program needs to be shut down and restarted for it to work again.

"A great time-saver"

July 17, 2006  |  By wlsmith

 |  Version: Actual Search & Replace 2.6.5

Pros

I found and downloaded Actual Search & Replace when I needed to make global changes in a web site that my web development application couldn't handle. I was pleased to find that it works with multiple lines of text (html code). This product saved me about five hours of valuable time. So, when I had more changes to make involving 150 pages of code, I gladly paid the license fee. Would other similar products work as well and save me as much? Probably. But this is the one I found, downloaded and tried.

Cons

The interface is fairly clear, but if you aren't a search and replace guru, it takes a little time to decide what it all means and how best to use the settings.

"Problems handling big files"

February 18, 2005  |  By jeremys013

 |  Version: Actual Search & Replace 2.6.2

Pros

The program is very easy to use. It includes most of the features that you would look for in a file search program, even regular expressions, and it will even display the contents and line number of the line your search phrase was found on. This makes it very usefull for programmers.

Cons

It has trouble handling large files. It acts as if it loads the entire file into memory before searching it. So if you have large files in the directories you are trying to search such as a CD image or .iso file I would recommend putting the file somewhere else before you run the search. At one point the program was taking up 190,000 kb of memory on my computer, rendering it pretty much unusable. Other than that it handles most files pretty well.

"Used it for years, best there is..."

November 06, 2004

 |  Version: Actual Search & Replace 2.3.2

Summary

This little app does it all and more - I've never run into a situation it couldn't handle, even modifiying thousands of files at a time (and then it will even 'undo' if you need it too!) Highly recommended. (No spyware or adware, either - a rare thing these days.) I was happy to register it - well worth it.
