Hi, this may sound extremely easy but I can't figure out what to do (and I'm a total non-techy). I have some long text codes saved in multiple textedit files and need to edit multiple items at once. Doing it manually would take a long, long time. Sometime told me that I can just use a perl regular expression, pop it in and it will automatically delete all the text parts I need deleted. The parts I need deleted all start and end with the same text but have different middles. So they not only said it was possible but said they'd done and it worked great (they were working on the same type of thing I am), and gave me the code to use. So it all sounds great and I have the code but I have no idea where to put it or what to do with it! Once I know what to do with it, it should just pop out new textedit files with the info I need deleted. I can't get in touch with the person who gave me the perl code now, and I can't figure out an answer on google, so I'm asking here. Where do I go to put a perl regular expression so that it will alter a textedit file? Thanks for any help.
