Text Workbench is a comprehensive file search and replacement utility for text files and Microsoft Office documents.

Regular Expression Laboratory

Regular Expressions are a set of advanced pattern matching algorithms that can be used to perform sophisticated string matching and text replacement operations on strings. They are useful for validating user input, . Many languages support Regular Expressions - Perl, Visual Basic 6.0, VBScript, ASP, Java and the .NET Framework (VB.NET and C#) all have Regular Expression support.

Unfortunately Regular Expressions can be difficult to learn! Fortunately Text Workbench comes supplied with an easy to use Regular Expression Laboratory used to test out pattern matching and substitutions. There are also a set of useful Regular Expressions and examples, which save hunting around in books or the Internet in order to find the right Regular Expression for a particular situation.
