Automate Opening Saving large number of txt files in Notepad
I have a large number of files that I have down loaded from a mainframe.
As the files have come from the mainframe - embedded within the text are
chara's containing null (code=0). This is causing problems with my text editor
when I wish to copy chunks of the data elsewhere.
I have since discovered that if I open the files using Notepad.exe and then save the files from
Notepad - this somehow gets rid of the null(code=0) charas.
I can then use my more heavy duty text editor - to manipulate the data as I please.
I have played around with using an old DOS batch programme whereby I can open the files automatically
in Notepad but I can't seem to be able to save and close Notepad files with DOS commands.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can tackle this problem?
