SearchMaestro Full Description
SearchMaestro is a powerful and robust file search tool and file content modifier. You can save and load your search parameters, and save your results to XML or CSV file format. You can view, find and replace the content of your files using easy or pattern matching, or simply by typing in the new content that you require. A comprehensive but easy to use ActiveX COM interface allows you to create scripting files for repeated use and scheduling. Two VBScript examples are included.
SearchMaestro is also tuned to the way you search, automatically saving all the files and folders that you have selected to search within. So after the first search you save time because a complete file list has already been created; SearchMaestro only needs to check each file and folder against the search parameters you have specified. You can add files and folders into SearchMaestro just by dropping them onto the SearchMaestro shortcut.
Every returned file can have its contents viewed and modified quickly and easily. To do this, just add them to SearchMaestro and hit 'Search'. The files will show in the Results box, and can then be opened with the Content Viewer and quickly altered with only a few clicks. This means that many files can be altered within a very short space of time using the Find What and Replace With boxes. Found and replaced items are coloured and highlighted for easier viewing.
The ActiveX COM interface builds upon the functionality in the graphical user interface. For example, the find and replace functionality allows you to retrieve detailed file information in an easy to understand format. You can save the results and parameters, and search each file's contents. Naturally, you can also replace the contents or copy them to another file, file by file. This powerful interface isn't just limited to file contents, it can help you to find and replace within any text you specify.
