File Expression Publisher's description
from Brandon Arnold
Utility to automate text file editing using regular expressions.
If you understand regular expressions, then you also know the power they hold. File Expression harnesses this power to automate the editing of text based files. Originally designed in-house to remove repetitious text from 100+ page court documents, FExp was built up to go beyond static searches and utilize regex to make the process of a long, tedious task comparatively quick and painless(so long as you know regular expressions).
File Expression cleans or displays text based on a provided regular expression and action you select from a list (Get, Edit, Remove or Add text). Provided you've created the right regex, FExp will turn a multi-hour job into a 10-30 second wait. GiveFile Expression a try to fully assess its capabilities!
