[prMac.com] Vancouver, Washington - unmarked software today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of TextSoap 6.4, its award winning, text processing tool that cleans up garbled email, web text, and more. TextSoap 6.4 improves on its batch file processing support. With an enhanced Clean Text Files Automator action, users can more easily leverage TextSoap's text cleaning to process large batches of text files.
Solving a common issue when processing large batches of files, two new enhancements make it easier to keep the original files as a fall back. Users can now specify the destination folder of processed files. Additionally, users can append or prepend specific text to each filename as it is processed. And it removes the need for an additional copy files step, boosting performance in the process.
"Creating a Droplet or Folder Action via Automator that uses TextSoap has never been easier," said Mark Munz, developer of TextSoap. "It used to require several actions to copy the original files before processing, maybe another for renaming the files after processing. Now it is just one action and you are ready to go."
Version 6.4 also includes an improved implementation of the cleaner that converts the Markdown format to HTML. The new implementation is significantly faster than previous releases. The new release also includes numerous improvements and bug fixes reported by customers including: improved automator integration within custom cleaners; some improvements with OS X Services; a new preference for the BBEdit plugin.
TextSoap simplifies the task of cleaning up garbled emails, text from websites and other text. It allows users to keep their text formatting while it cleans up the underlying garbled text. The built-in SCRUB cleaner provides common cleaning to handle most cases with a single click. Custom cleaners can be built for full customization to tackle most text transformation tasks.
