Advanced Find and Replace lets you perform text searches on your local computer as if you were using an Internet search engine. It features support for operators that allows you to specify phrases, words to insist on, and words to ignore. You can easily apply file specification and date and size filters to speed up the search. The program also allows you to replace simple or multiline strings. Specify your search-and-replace strings, then choose the action you'd like to take. You can delete the search string, insert text before or after it, or simply replace it. You can apply changes to large groups of files at a time, and use optional confirmation if you need to be more selective.
