    • Literal text (both single line, multi-line and binary character search)
    • Text patterns, using egrep (perl-like) regular expressions
    • Sounds-like matching (soundex)

  • Process any number of files and folders (with exclusion lists and subfolder depth settings), or the Windows clipboard
  • No memory limit on the size of files processed (eg process 2GB file in 16MB memory)
  • Test runs to verify results, as well as an ad-hoc area for testing conversions
