I needed something that can replace with wildcards, Microsoft Word does this, but I don't have that, and Open Office
Open document Click View Open Find & replace Click More options Click regular expressions
We'll work with what I know from here on out, the period key is the wildcard for this example(though if you search on google, they've got really complicated ways to search).
Amount0 = "148" Amount1 = "37" Amount2 = "3"
In the Find, put:
Amount0 = "..."
Will find every Triple digit Amount0 value.
I replaced all of my spawns to single digits this way, because my computer is slow. It's rather quick, and will give you a report window if you hit "replace all" IE [Performed action 789 times) Takes seconds.
Doing something like that with note pad, even if it had wildcards(which it doesn't) would take ages.
Be sure when saving to save with the left hand option(something about changing format, which is useless in .txt files).
IT's search and replace is mega fast as well(may have to double click the button to do replace all in the search window((seen on the bottom of the preview picture)). The search window is handy because it will stay up on the document after you open it. In that you can copy enter lines and tabs.
I stumbled onto that one for something to re-format text files for e-books.(new paragraphs and such)
Both do their jobs well and fast, making them ten times more efficient than notepad.
