"Fast and easy"
Version: Multiple Text File Edit and Replace 2.1
Did exactly what I wanted: Edit multiple files, replacing the same text with something else
Not intuitive, but I was running within seconds.
I can't believe there aren't more multiple text editors out there, but, this is the only one I could find!
I had about 500 HTML files that needed to replace common text with newer content. Obviously, doing it, manually, would have been a pain in terms of time and effort! I found this program (let's call it 'MultiEdit' for short!), downloaded it, and installed it. It opened immediately after install, and, though it took me a few seconds to figure out the single screen, I was happily modifying files, one directory at a time (n.b., I verified a few, randomly, as I went along, just to be certain it was working as I expected; i.e., no point in changing all the files, should something go wrong! Even so, 'MultiEdit' copied the original files to a new sub-directory/folder, so no worries in that regard). It was shockingly fast! When I compared a few random new/edited files with the original ones in the backup sub-directory/folder that 'MultiEdit' created, the only things that were different were exactly what I wanted!
I wish all software worked this well!
