Jason Snell, on Six Colours:
When people ask me what features of BBEdit I use, I can mention Markdown tools and syntax support, which I use for writing stories like this one. But the other thing I use BBEdit for is a bit more esoteric and hard to describe—something I call “text munging”, for lack of a better word.
I recently used Excel for a similar purpose and was surprised how much I underutilize it for such tasks. Anyway, Jason’s expedition is a very interesting read, combining BBEdit, regular expressions, and the aforementioned Excel.
