[prMac.com] Hong Kong - Cross Culture today is pleased to announce Mergemill Pro 4.3, an update to their versatile data processing and static website generation tool. The software now extends its BASIC scripting functionality to all supported platforms, from Mac OS X 10.5 to 10.7 and Windows XP to 7. The release enables Visual Basic, VBScript, and Real Basic developers to leverage their BASIC programming skill to create unique and effective solutions with Mergemill Pro.
"Empowering our users is one of our important software design objectives," said Vitus Chak, Managing Director of Cross Culture Ltd. "We seek to leverage what many of our users may have already learned, to maximize their return on investment in acquiring their skills. So we include Real Software's RBScript in Mergemill Pro and make it available to users of all supported platforms."
The RBScript dynamic data source feature in Mergemill Pro allows users to execute Real Basic code and assign the result to a Mergemill field tag in a template. Before the template is run, Mergemill Pro compiles the RBScript into fast machine code to optimize performance.
Mergemill Pro is a versatile tool. Database users may use it 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 reap the many benefits of generating static web pages, analyze web logs to obtain crucial stats of their website traffic, and freely test and learn powerful regular expressions. 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.
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.

Mergemill Pro 4.3 is available for Macs running OS X 10.5 or higher and PCs running Windows XP or above. It can be purchased online from Cross Culture's website for the retail price of $99 USD. The update is free for registered users of all previous versions.
