I would like to remove all lines in a text file starting with ">From " using TextWrangler. It seems the grep function is the way to go. The following I found the following to work: ^(>From ).* and in the replace text-box just entering nothing. This works except it replaces those lines with an empty line. I want it removed. Once I have this working I'd like to fix a bunch of separate text files the same way. Is this just a matter of using Search - Multi-File Search... and selecting the grep term which I've previously saved as a preset? Ideally I'd like TextWrangler to: 1) open the first file in a specific folder 2) remove the offending lines as above 3) save the file with the same name, but appending "_edit" at the end 4) repeat by opening the next file in the same folder Can this be done or do I have to work on file copies, then batch rename them afterwords (A Better Finder Rename is great for this sort of thing).
