Dreamweaver is the recommended industry standard??

I thought it was. I seen lot of companies and firms use buy it for their employees at work. But in case I'm wrong, I've removed the "industry standard" comment.

Text editor for large data files....

I often need to edit large data files (text), most often in Windows. The editing requirements are straightforward, just two extra's....
1. Good macro capabilities (make same change to millions of lines)...
2. Good search capabilities which include {TAB} or EOL in the search string.

Any suggestions folks?

TIA.

Re: EditPlus

brick, I agree with you!

I have been using EditPlus for several years. TextPad is quite similar but the developers have a strange attitude to discussion of alternative editors on their forum.

The feature I like most about these two editors is the Clip Library. Here is a short bit of code from my custom CSS clip Library:

#T=comment
/* ^! */
#T=comment (multi-line)
/*
^!
*/
#T=border
border: ^!border-width | border-style | border-color;
#T=border-bottom
border-bottom: ^!border-bottom-width | border-style | border-color;
#T=border-bottom-color
border-bottom-color: ^!border-color;
#T=border-bottom-style
border-bottom-style: ^!border-style;

The text following the "#T=" appears in a panel on the left side of the main edit window. Click on an entry (say "border") and the text in the line(Drunk below are inserted into your edit window with the cursor positioned at the point where the "^!" string is located. Really neat.

I have custom Clip Libraries for CSS, HTML, HTML entities, HTML colours, PHP and Python. I also have one called "normal(dot)html" (a spoof on Microsoft Word's normal.doc) which I use for all my word processing - I produce ALL my documents as HTML.

Geany is a relative new open source editor which has a feature something like Clip Libraries only you type the equivalent to the text after the "#T=" (say "border") then press the [tab] key and the clip text is inserted. It works on Windows AND Linux and maybe Mac.
