Description of PowerGREP 4.4.0
A powerful grep tool for Windows
Quickly find information in files and folders across your computer or network, even if you do not know in advance exactly what you are looking for. PowerGREP's rich Perl-compatible regular expression support allows you to search for virtually anything by specifying the form of what you want, and let PowerGREP find the actual text matching that form. PowerGREP's documentation includes a detailed regular expression tutorial, with many simple and complex examples.
Search through plain text files such as source code, letters and correspondence, server or system logs, reference texts, historic archives, etc. Search through through binary files, Unicode files, UNIX and Mac text files, files stored in zip archives, Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Acrobat PDF files, etc.
Don't limit yourself to getting a list of files or search matches. Extract useful information from large sets of data or heaps of documents. Distill statistics and knowledge from all kinds of log files or archives.
Perform comprehensive search-and-replace operations across large numbers of files for easy maintenance or fast editing of web sites, source code, reports, etc. Preview and inspect the results of the search and replace before actually modifying files. Replace or revert individual search matches in a full-featured file editor. Stay safe with a variety of backup options. Undo changes or clean up backup files in the Undo History.
Save PowerGREP actions and invoke them from the command line to automate recurring tasks. Developers can integrate PowerGREP actions and results with enterprise software through PowerGREP's open XML file formats.

What is new in version 4.4.0
• Placeholders: %FILEN% placeholder that is incremented for each file searched through, allowing unique sequential IDs to be generated for each file.
• Placeholders: %GUID% inserts a newly generated GUID into the replacement text; each replacement will get a different GUID.
• 64-bit: Indicate x86, x64, or WOW64 in the About box to indicate whether you're running the 32-bit version on 32-bit Windows, the 64-bit version on 64-bit Windows, or the 32-bit version on 64-bit Windows.
• File Selector: The Search Archives option is now remembered when you restart PowerGREP, even if you turn off the option to remember the file selection in the File Selector section in the Preferences.
• Import File Listing dialog now automatically gets scrollbars if it is too large to fit on the screen, which may happen when using large fonts or a small screen.
• Undo History: Disable commands that work on a selection in the undo history when the Undo History panel is closed.
• Windows 8: Uninstall shortcut is no longer pinned to the start screen by the installer (but it won't unpin any shortcuts that were previously pinned).
• Action: Collect data actions that used line breaks as the delimiter between matches stopped adding those line breaks if a file used a different encoding than the previous file processed by the same thread.
• Archives: "List files" actions without a search term failed to delete, copy, or move files found inside archives.
• Command Line: /delimitprefix, /delimitsearch, and /delimitreplace now interpret the strings "Line break", "Tab", and "None" in the same way the drop-down lists on the Action panel interpret them: as an actual line break, tab, or a blank string.
• Placeholders: Path placeholders in the search term did not work correctly if the search was case insensitive and the part of the path represented by the placeholder contained uppercase letters.
• Preferences, General: Removing folder associations did not work.
• Results: Alt+F6 key combinations for replacing and reverting matches had no effect on the Results panel.
• Sequence: Executing a sequence and then executing a separate action and then double-clicking a step in the sequence to load its results sometimes caused access violation errors in the File Selector when expanding folders that had results in the separate action but not in the sequence step.
• Undo History: Ctrl+A when the undo history list has keyboard focus now selects all items in the undo history instead of selecting the whole contents of the file on the Editor panel.
• Windows 8: Toolbar combo boxes did not properly display their drop-down arrows.
