grepWin is a useful program that allows you to search and replace text in multiple files at the same time. It comes in handy when you have numerous documents that need corrections.
The interface of the application is represented by a standard window with a well-organized layout. Without making any adjustments to the tool, you can simply specify the folder container, the text string that you want to find, together with its replacement.
But grepWin lets you filter this search by providing you with some configuration options. For example, you can enable case sensitive mode, treat files as UTF8, set a file size limit, exclude directories and write text match patterns for file names.
It is also possible to include system items, hidden items and subfolders, allow only one instance of grepWin, as well as to choose the match mode between Regex and text. Plus, you may input a command line to start an editor at a specific line.
The program doesn’t take a long time to locate and replace items (according to the volume of information it’s dealing with). It is very responsive to keyboard commands and includes a help file. We have not experienced any problems during our evaluation, since the app did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its intuitive layout yet rich filter settings, grepWin should please the entire audience.
