3 RegexSearch Screenshots:
RegexSearch is a Java application that performs find and find-and-replace searches for regular expressions on multiple text files.

Here are some key features of "RegexSearch":

It can search for literal text or regular expressions.
The search can be performed on a single file, on a directory (with optional recursion) or on the files and directories listed in a text file. Files can be included in and excluded from the search by means of filters.
Occurrences of the target expression within each file are displayed in a scrollable window, with the matched text highlighted.
Occurrences of the target expression can be replaced individually or globally. If the target is a regular expression, the replacement can include arbitrary parts of the matched text.
Replacements can be previewed, then accepted or rejected.
The parsing and matching of regular expressions is performed by the robust Java regular expression package. The syntax of Java's regular expressions is similar to that of Perl.
The results of a search (number of matches, number of replacements) are displayed for each file in which a match is found.


Java 1.4.2 or later

What's New in This Release:

Bug fixes:

No longer crashes when there is more than one item in the list of a parameter field and the last item is deleted.
Some non-fatal misbehaviours in the editing of parameter fields and the navigation of file sets have been fixed.

Other modifications:

The index of each of the list parameters of a file set (pathname, inclusion filter and exclusion filter) is saved when you move between file sets. The file-set index, indexes of the file-set parameters and the indexes of the target and replacement lists are saved with a search-parameter file. A change to any of those indexes is regarded as a change to the file.
