title: Introduction to TextSweep
alias: Introduction

TextSweep is a simple but powerful application for searching and replacing text in multiple files, quickly and easily. Using an elegant, intuitive interface, TextSweep allows you to select a directory, specify which files will be modified, enter a search and replace term, and see the changes instantly. 

'''Why TextSweep? '''
 * Faster than opening many files in a text editor and doing individual search/replace operations.
 * More intuitive than other dedicated search-replace tools that feature an overwhelming variety of options and/or a complex interface.
 * Extensive automation capabilities to incorporate into wider workflows.
 * Less error-prone than using command-line programs to do do search/replace operations. 
 * Safe to use because all replace operations are easily undone.

TextSweep has many features to help with search-and-replace in multiple files.

title: Introduction to Stringscan
alias: Introduction

Stringscan is a simple but powerful application for recursively searching a directory for a specific string of text. Using an elegant, intuitive interface, Stringscan allows you to select a directory, specify the search term, and see both the file results and the highlighted term in the file quickly.  

'''Why Stringscan? '''
 * Simpler than command-line tools with multiple search options.
 * More intuitive than other dedicated search tools that feature an overwhelming variety of options and/or a complex interface.
 * Faster than searching from command-line then opening file in separate program to locate search terms within file.
