#1 Search and replace with <del> key

Posted by: Neil | Date: 2019-05-08 23:21 | IP: IP Logged

Hi Jan (or anyone),

Do you know how I can replace a found string with a "delete" key stroke?

I have a file where long text strings are broken onto a new line with a "$" at the end of the broken line.

I want to find all the "$"s and delete them such that the lines are joined again.

Thanks,

Neil

PHReplace might help.

Hi

Thanks for suggestion but that appears to have the same functionality as PSPad search and replace (except extra for multi line strings)

I want to be able to Find the "$" text and Replace with a <delete> such that split lines are joined again onto one line.

Hi Jan,

I found a solution on another forum.

Using the editor TextPad I do a search for:
/$/n

which as you would know is a literal "$" followed by line return.

I replace this with:
<blank>

and the lines are rejoined.

I tried this in PSPad but it cannot find "/$/n"

Any suggestions ??

Thanks,

Internal Search/Replace does line by line search. It can't eliminate line ends
Wat you can do is switch view to HEX mode and do search/Replace there.
Find your string, replace with nothing and switch back to text mode

but it works well for the case you've described
search for: "[$]$\r\n" (in case, you use DOS line ends)
replace with: " " (space)
use regular expression: checked

Hi Vany,

Sorry - I must be missing something.

I type "[$]$\r\n" into find box (with regular expression checked) and nothing found.

I am using just a plain .txt file

Cheers,
