TextPipe Pro 9.1

TextPipe Pro Editor's Review

TextPipe Pro should be able to provide fast text manipulation and data extraction. You can use it to perform multiple searches and replacements on a batch of files, search for duplicates, format source code and HTML and so on. Virtually every text operation can be accomplished with this software.

The application is a bit slower than other text editors in text searching and replacement operations. However, it does have the advantage of being able to process large files without locking the user interface. I compared the program with the open source Notepad++, on a 4 MB text file. I performed a simple search and replace operation using a regex expression. TextPipe Pro took 2 minutes and 29 seconds to finish the job. Notepad++ took 18 seconds to complete the replacement. It's true that Notepad++ was not responding during the replacement process, but this is a small price to pay for such a big improvement in speed. It's also true that when the regex expression is harder to match, TextPipe Pro closes in on Notepad++.

As I said, Regex expressions are supported. You can use them for matching text, as well as replacing it. Another thing that I found to be quite useful is the fact that you can add line numbers to text files. This came in pretty handy when I published a piece of source code on my website.

Pluses: The program has about 100 built-in filters which can help you edit any text file. You can also use this application to split and join files.

Drawbacks / flaws:

In conclusion: TextPipe Pro is a professional solution for text manipulation. It's stable and quite easy to use.
