[prMac.com] Hong Kong - Cross Culture is pleased to announce Mergemill Pro 4.1, an update to their versatile data processing and analysis tool. The release includes an extensive sample project that helps users get traffic statistics crucial to the success of their websites. The project also provides a foundation for users to easily build on to obtain further metrics important to their unique web design. By reporting the pageview stats of landing, bounce, exit and all pages together with associated search terms and read percentages, the free web traffic anaylzer project enables website owners to see the performance of their web pages in attracting and retaining visitors, as well as to identify the effectiveness of their targeted search terms.
The update brings many other improvements and bug fixes also. A new import button makes it easy to import jobs and associated settings from other Mergemill documents. The revisions to offline and online documentation and resources should help users become productive more quickly. Mac OS X Lion users can now choose any high-quality voice in a language provided by the OS and use Mergemill Pro to turn web pages and emails to near-natural speech. Users could also set up an automated voice announcement system that reads some generated text at scheduled times.
Mergemill Pro takes diverse sources of data, such as databases, web pages, e-mails and more, and then merges them with templates to produce the desired output, from web pages to customized e-mails. The program features powerful data-processing capabilities such as data filters, multi-level data sorting, BASIC scripting, and multiple search-and-replace actions. It supports Unicode and other text encodings, and has project scheduling and auto-run functionality. Users can control output in templates through scripting with tags for content insertion, arithmetic expressions, looping, branching, statistic calculations and for marking text blocks for variable assignment or special output actions.
Database users may use Mergemill Pro to cleanse and de-duplicate data to improve data quality. They may use it to do survey by email without a website, and automate the conversion of text file formats between CSV, XML, and tab-delimited text. The program also enables users to easily migrate data between ODBC-compliant databases.
Web publishers may use Mergemill Pro to freely test and learn powerful regular expressions, analyze web logs to obtain crucial stats of their website traffic, and reap the many benefits of generating static web pages. They may automate the conversion of text file character encoding, monitor web page changes automatically, and send customized and personalized emails to opt-in lists. The program enables users to turn web text, emails and generated content into speech in near-natural voices for podcasts or automated voice announcements, and to extract important web data at scheduled times to update their websites accordingly.
