[prMac.com] Vancouver, Washington - unmarked software announced TextSoap 6.1, an update to their award winning text processing utility for Mac OS X. TextSoap 6.1 includes several new key features and more than two dozen fixes and improvements. TextSoap 6.1 introduces textsoapAgent scripting. This is a significant advancement over the original scripting support (via the Scripting Addition). textsoapAgent scripting allows script writer to directly access the core features of TextSoap.
For example, script users now have access to the list of groups as well as a list of cleaners for a group allowing them to custom build a user interface to TextSoap with any Mac OS X scripting language. Enhanced commands also support the cleaning of script text, the contents of the user's clipboard and specified text files. For quick work, script users can easily bring up a palette (with group support) with a single script command.
Version 6.1 also adds several new features, including:
* Toggling between rich text and plain text for both the clipboard workspace and text files
* Additional built-in groups
* New Automator options to specify text encoding when reading and writing files
* New action to get leftmost range of characters
* New action to get rightmost range of characters
* New action to get middle range of characters
* New action to convert rich text hyperlinks to plain text
* Speak Text toolbar button
Dozens of fixes and improvements help address user reported problems and enhancement requests.
* US English
* Requires Mac OS X v10.5 or later
* Universal Binary: Works great on both Intel and PowerPC
* 14 MB hard Drive space
Take total control of text and its style. Whether it is Mail, AppleWorks, BBEdit, or TextEdit, TextSoap provides integration options such as Services Menu support, Shortcut Menu and Application plug-ins. With a single menu selection TextSoap 6 brings unique processing power to users from within their favorite application.
