Search/Replace HTML software

I am wanting to have a software program to search and replace multiple lines of source code in all files in my web site.  I have tried Frontpage, Pagemill & Cold Fusion - none of these programs hold enough lines to search & replace with.  I am looking at searching & replacing up to 100 lines of code at a time.  

Also some of these programs open up the pages, do the changes, then close again - in this process it adds extra code (e.g. generator tag).  I do not want a program to do this.

perl!  Its free, it will do all you need and is very simple.  There are also loads of experts here who can help you with anythinbg you want.  I would doubt that you would need more than a 10 line per script.

Cold Fusion and Homesite's Extended Find and Extended Replace hold LOTS of code, much more than 100 lines, in my experience.
You mentioned that Cold Fusion wouldn't replace enough text. Did you try the extended function (as opposed to simple Find and Replace)?

sounds like the sort of thing that perl excells at.

Seems to me the best way is to use a tool which means there is no need to do vast large text search and replaces.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Go to winfiles.com and search for "GREP HTML" and you will find a few good ones.

Get the absolute *BEST* text editor in the business.  UltraEdit.  I program for a living and couldn't do without it.  You can do search and replace, search and replace in files and more than you could ever imagine.  It has just as many options as old VMS editors with keymapping etc, with syntax highlighting (customizable of course) and much much more.  Yes this is a gratuitious plug.  No I did not write it.  But it is a very very tightly done program.  I highly reccomend it.

I have downloaded the UltraEdit-32 and tried the Search and Replace.  I have not found a way to search multiple lines of text within multiple files at one time.  Does this software have the capability of doing this - if so, how?  Thanks again and hope to hear back.

Arachnophilia is nice but doesn't have what you need.

Homesite/ColdFusion have exactly what you need.

Goto:
http://webcash.tucows.com/window95.html

and check out the HTML editors section.
It has text editors and advanced editors.
The Text editors (quite a few of them) have what you need.
Both shareware and freeware.

I think you are forgetting that you need a compiler to run Perl on Windows.  and it is more of a hassle than its worth.
The compiler is free but download... configuring ... etc..
