Search Text In Files Giveaway
Vovsoft Search Text In Files is an easy-to-use file search application for your desktop or laptop computer. Search through plain-text files and PDF files using simple queries and this tool will quickly list the requested files.
This program is a simple text search software that allows you to seek fast through your files. Select directory, enter "Filename Filter" and "Find Text", then click the "Start" button. Everything that meets the specified criteria will be listed. You can open, rename, copy or delete the resulting files by right-clicking. You can export the results into TXT or CSV file. You can also display file size, and file icons using the settings. If you want to disregard files that contain a specified text, you can do this by utilizing the "Ignore Text" option.
It should also be noted that unlike similar programs, this software supports very long path and file names (longer than 260 characters).
You can save the current state of application as operation file and use it later. All you have to do is open an existing operation file, this program will recognize the search criteria and start searching again.
The application supports filename wildcards; asterisks (*) and question marks (?). An asterisk matches any number of characters, a question mark matches a single arbitrary character.

I am a fan of Search for text in files. My editor allows me to do essentially the same but it also allows me to have the option of searching for a string of characters as the full word. For example, a search on ABC will find ABC and ABCD, but the "full-word" option will return only the ABC result. Would that be hard to add as another option?
Another problem I have with text files is searching for files that DO NOT have the searched on item. That would make Vovsoft Search for text in files a rare application!
And finally, before doing the export, whatever is found and displayed in the results, it would be nice to remove some of the entries without repeating the search with a refined filter. I have a very fast search for text in files program that allows me to select any entry of the results, but it is intended for use such as "deleting" the text file on the text and without an option to recover it. What a disaster. I had to learn that the hard way. Be careful how you use the DEL key in any application result. Users may not be aware (or remember) its use. If it deletes a file, you will get no fans for that design.
Thanks for all you do.
