WildGem is a small and fast tool to help find and replace text. Its powerful syntax combines most of the flexibility of regular expressions (regex), but with the simplicity of the typical find/replace function.

It features a dual split display that updates or highlights matches as you type in real-time. A unique color-coded syntax lets you easily find/replace text without worrying about having to escape special symbols.

WildGem also lets you convert its search/replace expressions into the equivalent regex syntax so that you can use them anywhere where regex is supported.

Runs on:Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: .NET 4.0
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download WildGem.exe to a folder of your choice and launch.

I've been using this program for years it is an amazing way to do tricky RegEx on text or figure out RegEx for other programs/software. I use it the most for striping junk out of large website copy/past operations, but it has also been a life savor in game dev, web dev, and just an overall amazing tool to have on my computer an know existed.

WildReplace is a search tool that lets you search for files on your disks and presents the results in a folder tree.

WildReplace can also replace text within files, create backups of modified files, and delete files that match your search criteria. It will also move all matching files to a new location while preserving the same folder structure.

Didn't make changes. Looked like ran but didn't. I know permissions weren't the issue so not sure why nothing happened. LAME

Using Windows 7, the program performed as described. I find the interface usable. I was able to change a bunch of "blank.gif", "dot_clea.gif" all to "spacer.gif" to eliminate redundant files with ease. Use no file content search, just match by filename and it is easy to delete those files in a bunch of locations.

Textreme v3.1

  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Feb 2016
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Textreme is a tool for "text remodelling", allowing you to change text and modify its appearance by delete blanks or moving/insert words. Great for updating text files with lots of minor changes that would be manually tedious, the program offers a variety of string-based functions (deleting sections, inserting into a specific place, switching bits around, etc.) for text files. There are currently nine different actions that can be performed in various ways and actions can be cascaded in so that many changes can be made in a single pass.

Tip: Use "TextEditor="dummy\..\..\PathToYourEditor.exe" to specify an editor with relative path in Textreme.ini.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Path portability: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package according to your system and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Textreme.exe or Textreme64.exe.

TypingAid v2.22.0

Midas on 29 Nov 2016
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 26 Jun 2015
  • Suggested by joby_toss

TypingAid is a fast and simple auto-completion utility that suggests words and phrases in any window. The program supports European languages with accents, suggestion tooltips, and the ability to add words and phrases to word list with shortcut key.

The program can help with writing in a language different than the available keyboard, with highly technical or medical terminology, or to help cut down on typing for touch or disabled typists.

The program was compiled using an AutoHotkey script and the .AHK source included.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL Version 3
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch TypingAid.exe.

Optionally, you can prepare a list of words, saved as "wordlist.txt" under the same folder as the program file. The zip contains one for general purposes (and the program learns as it goes), but others are available from the homepage.
What's new?
  • Added the ability to exact match on Window Titles (enquote, or tick the checkbox).
  • Added Word Replacements. In wordlist.txt, use the form |r|. To define more than one replacement per word, simply add the word again on a different line. If Case Correction is off, the case of the first letter will be changed to match the word being replaced.
  • Added Word Descriptions. In wordlist.txt, use the form |d|. Replacements and Descriptions are compatible and can exist on the same word. With fixed width fonts, the description will show in a separate column.
  • Added a setting to control the width of the List Box in pixels.
  • Added Numpad Enter as an autocomplete key.
  • Fixed issues with words that had apostrophes (') in them.
  • Set journal_mode to TRUNCATE so the db journal isn't deleted every time.
  • Minor performance improvements when loading the wordlist.
  • Added a progress bar when loading the wordlist.
  • Added a progress bar when cleaning the wordlist (when exiting the script, the box may appear blank. I think this is because the script is exiting).
  • Added framework for database conversions.
  • Fixed issue with overriding the default font.

@ Maniac: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Found a bug when generating new Preferences.ini files. If you've started anew with TypingAid since v2.19.7, it's probably best to delete your preferences.ini, but it will fix the TerminatingCharacters entry IF you have not modified that entry since the Preferences.ini was created.

*2.19.9 12/18/2014
** Fixed bug when creating TerminatingCharacters when generating preferences file. Broken TerminatingCharacters will be repaired if not already modified.
** Added "Threading" during the input loop to cause less missed keys
** Auto-launch 64 bit exe if present and launching a compiled script (name 64 bit script "64.exe")
** Fixed some poorly named variables

** Detecting Window switches now uses Windows Event Hooks, rather than a timer
** Added weighting based on number of characters left to type
** Changed license to GPLv3 for compatibility with AhkDBA SQLite3 interface
** Added the ability to learn words with no alpha characters when hitting Ctrl-Shift-C, or to read them in from Wordlist.txt

** Fixed words not being learned when hitting Ctrl-Shift-C while Learning is off
** Large amounts of code refactoring, including renaming all global variables and fixing function scope
