Replace Studio Business Edition is a sister program to Funduc
Software's Replace Studio Pro.
Like Replace Studio Pro, Replace Studio Business Edition
searches through text-based files and can also make
replacements. Also like Replace Studio Pro, the 'Business Edition' can now do seaches on .pdf files (search-only). Search/replacements can be done on .docx, .xlsx, .pptx, and 'Open
Office' files if you want (see documentation for instructions). The program can search/replace in subdirectories and ZIP files,
it can perform case sensitive searching, it can match on 'whole words' or
partial words, and it can ignore 'whitespace' or not. Advanced
'file masks' and 'file filters' can be used to tune which files &
folders are to be processed.
Replace Studio Business Edition is not intended
for 'business' customers only. The word 'business' in the program
title is used because the program is primarily oriented towards
'scripted' search (& replace) tasks that are passed to the program
on the command line. One example might be a standardized search of
log files that is used to generate an output report of interest.
Because these types of fixed tasks are more common in a corporate
or business setting, we chose to name the program 'Business
Replace Studio Business Edition does have a graphical user
interface (see below). The GUI is used to create 'script' files that contain the
search/replace string(s), path(s) & file mask(s) to search, and
other program options for that script. Scripts can then be recalled and run
via the GUI if you like. A built-in context viewer
presents search results in the context of the found string.
The context viewer can also be used to manually edit the file containing a 'search
hit'. Alternatively, you can launch the viewer/editor of your
choice to open that file. The main window also supports
drag n drop from Explorer into the 'Path/Mask' field and you can
drag n drop files in the Search Results list into Explorer or an
external editor that supports drag n drop.
Once a script has been created
and tested you can load and run that script via the windows command line
or in a .bat file.
The command line switches are:
/c or /C - Script file to use
/n or /N - 'No Replacement Prompting'
/u or /U - Quiet Mode
/r or /R - Specify this switch to perform a replacement.
1. Perform a 'search only' operation using a script named
2. Perform a 'search and replace' operation using a script named
In the above the /r switch tells the program to
perform a replace and /u disables the program interface.
Replace Studio Business Edition can load & read .srs
Search and Replace scripts.
Upon saving, the converted script is named with .srx for the
name extension and the .srs script is left unchanged. A
conversion utility is also available. See
srxConvert for more information.
