[prMac.com] Cincinnati, Ohio - Code by Kevin has released updates for two new Mac applications for batch file operations: FileMorph 1.0, for batch file renaming; and TextSweep 1.0, for batch file search and replace.
FileMorph is a powerful application for batch renaming of files and modification of file attributes. Combining elegance, speed and simplicity, FileMorph makes the process of changing large numbers of files--ranging from one to dozens--easy and painless.
TextSweep is a simple but powerful application for searching and replacing text in multiple files, quickly and easily. Using an elegant, intuitive interface, TextSweep allows you to select a directory, specify which files will be modified, enter a search and replace term, and see the changes instantly.
There are dedicated commercial alternatives to both applications on the market, but they tend to be more expensive, and they can seem overwhelming with options and configurability. Other, less expensive alternatives exist as well, including shell scripts and AppleScripts, but such approaches can be tedious to set up. Finding a happy medium between cost and power/speed/ease-of-use is the goal of these products; both applications were born of frustration about the available options for performing modification of files and search/replace in multiple files.
Version 1.1 of both applications feature the following improvements:
* Improved error handling.
* Compatibility with Mac sandboxing requirements.
Both applications are shareware and cost $29.95, with a free 30-day trial. Both applications support Mac OS X 10.7 and up.
