Powerful though StrongED is, there are jobs which can easier be done by another program. ConvText is one such.
StrongED processes every occurrence of the search string in one pass. ConvText differs from StrongED in that it does multiple passes of the initial text, one pass for each line of instruction. Each instruction is simple - a search string followed by a colon, then a replace string. If the replace string is blank, the search string is simply deleted.
ConvText does not have the advanced search and replace capabilities of StrongED so is much simpler to use.
Since ConvText does one pass of the text for each line of instruction the script can be assembled line by line and the script tested at each stage simply by
This is too simple a job for StrongED! It would require many passes. But the job is simple in ConvText - script file in the zip file. The output file is a simple tsv format which can be dropped directly into PipeDream
ConvText can be downloaded from Paul Sprangers web site
