how to speed up find/replace in text editor
Posted 13 October 2006 - 02:20 AM
Is there another windows program that can do find/replace faster?

Should do the trick once you've got the file loaded.
Or, if you don't feel like learning Vim, you could always get Textpad (www.textpad.com) and do a regex search and replace on \t to |

Else you could just copy a tab and paste it into the replace field.
The only problem with that is that tabs may be represented differently - I don't believe databases expand \t to 4 spaces or 8 spaces or whatever. I believe they just leave them as \t, and I wouldn't be surprised if the text editor in use would expand the \t to 4 or 8 spaces or whatever it thinks a tab is.

But it is much easier to just write \t if the editor support it.

Also, its not necessary to find/replace anyway in this case because you can use \t as the replace character in phpmyadmin. pasting a tab into there wont work by the way.
