PowerGREP 5.3.0 Retail Portable (x64)
PowerGREP is a powerful Windows grep tool. Quickly search through large numbers of files on your PC or network, including text and binary files, compressed archives, MS Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF files, OpenOffice files, etc. Find the information you want with powerful text patterns (regular expressions) specifying the form of what you want, instead of literal text. Search and replace with one or many regular expressions to comprehensively maintain web sites, source code, reports, etc. Extract statistics and knowledge from logs files and large data sets.
PowerGREP offers you a wealth of features that will come in handy in many situations when you want to find information, update or convert files, or extract useful information and statistics. PowerGREP is a knowledge worker’s Swiss army knife.
Find Files and Information
Quickly search across files, folders and archives on your computer or network. Search for words, phrases or binary data. Or use regular expressions to describe the form of what you’re looking for, and let PowerGREP find the actual text. Specify as many search terms as you want. Inspect the context of individual search matches, or group identical matches together.
Edit and Redact Files with Search and Replace
Search and replace through heaps of files without opening them first. Preview the replacements without modifying any files. Make complex replacements or conversions with regular expressions. Replace or revert individual search matches at your leisure. Work safely with flexible backup and undo options.
Extract and Collect Information and Statistics
Gather statistics and extract data from files, archives and logs. Collect search matches into one or more new files. Use regular expressions to describe the form of the text you want to extract, and let PowerGREP collect all or part of the match. Sort matches, and group identical matches and count them, to produce informative statistics.
Split, Merge, and Rearrange Logs and Data Sets
Split huge files into smaller files. Merge many small files into fewer larger files. Rearrange logs and data sets to make them easier to work with.
Rename, Copy, Move, Compress, and Decompress Files and Folders
Rename, copy, and move files and folders by searching and replacing through file and folder names or paths. Compress and decompress files by moving them in and out of archives.
PowerGREP’s Unique Abilities
PowerGREP has a wide range of capabilities you won’t find in any other Windows grep tool. While you will use some of these features only occasionally, they will surely save you a lot of time and tedious manual editing on many occasions.
Regular Expression Lists
Apply any number of search terms of regular expressions sequentially or concurrently. Complex search and replace operations often require multiple steps. Use PowerGREP to execute as many steps as you want in a single operation. Run the steps concurrently (search matches won’t overlap), or sequentially (replacements cascade onto the following steps). Save all steps into a single PowerGREP Action for instant reuse.
Similarly, while searching or collecting data, use a list of search terms or regular expressions to find files matching different criteria, or to extract disparate information from each file.
Slice and Dice Files Any Way You Want
Limit your search to specific file sections. When updating web sites, limit the search and replace to HTML tags, or even specific HTML tags, or alternatively, skip HTML tags. When programming, search through only comments and/or strings, or alternatively, skip comments and/or strings. Use as many regular expressions as you want to section files.
Split files into records before searching. Instead of searching whole files at once, or line by line, split files into whichever record or block structure the files are formatted with. Specify record delimiters, or use regular expressions to match the records themselves.
When sectioning files or splitting them into records, you can work with the sections as a whole. Require search matches to span complete sections, collect or replace whole records, or return those records in which the search terms cannot be found.
Adapt Search Matches before Substitution or Collection
Post-process replacement text or text to be collected. Often, a search match isn’t in the format you want it to be. PowerGREP’s unique “extra processing” feature allows you to perform additional search and replace steps on each search match. E.g. when processing web logs, replace URL-encoded characters when extracting search engine keywords from referrer URLs.
