Simple Delete Question

Post by isofilm » Mon Mar 12, 2007 11:37 pm

I'm sure this is simple for everyone else... but how can I delete everything after a certain character, such as a double quote, on each line.
Such as starting with:
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... ders-9.gif" >f-heat-spreaders-9.gif</a>
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... inum-1.gif" >f-heat-spreaders-aluminum-1.gif</a>
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... pper-1.gif" >f-heat-spreaders-copper-1.gif</a>
And ending with:
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... ders-9.gif
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... inum-1.gif
http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery ... pper-1.gif
Thanks,
DT

Go to Batch replace tab, check on "Use regular expressions".
Put into the grid, search for:
(http://www.novelconceptsinc.com/gallery/.*)" >.*\.gif</a>

Replace with:
$1

That's all I verified it works perfectly.

What if the "kept" info is different?

Example:

sprad8@hotmail.com SMTP
bnkimo@aol.com SMTP Barbara Martin-Perkins (bnkimo@aol.com)
bgreemberg@aol.com SMTP Rebecca Greemberg (bgreemberg@aol.com)
ekj8944@aol.com SMTP Beth Johnson (ekj8944@aol.com)
Joe@JoeLatorre.com SMTP

Want to keep the email address, but delete the SMTP and everything after it?

Very cool tool btw.

Kevin,

Go to Batch replace tab, check on "Use regular expressions".
Put into the grid, search for:
\sSMTP.*\r\n

Replace with:
should be empty.

That's all I verified it works perfectly.
