There are a lot of posts with more 360 days old about this theme. I was doubting if undig the above post, but better begin another one.
There are a lot of text expanding programs, but only a few with regexp capabilities like AUSPEX .
The need of implementing is not assumed by all programmers. (At least in my poor interpretation) http://msdn.microsoft.com...903%28v=office.11%29.aspx
Phrase Express No (See the first link)
Auspex Yes (See the first link)
I found another paid program with an old installer in the style of windows 98 SE : Instant Text 7 Pro
with an interesting feature : automatic glossary creation. But I think this last program don't have the regexp feature. And in despite of the installer the programmer tells is up to windows 8.
There are not much more explicitely in the web for windows in this aspect.
But really the powerful of regexp - in my opinion - is present inside any grammatical style corrector or spell checker (ortography).
But is not so often in the auto correct or auto replace option.
May be two reasons :
1. The first is told by Bartel from Phrase Express
2. The second is because is Sancta Santorum Area for Programmers.
About a few months ago i put a post in this forum about recombine the expression "*** JOSE *** July 24, 2014 at 12:12am " to search in a screenshot folder and screenhots created by ScreenShot Captor.
Read the expression in several ways to search in my screenshots folder i created every month.
See the screenshot for the configuration.
Reach the answer take a considerable time to a good friend programmer because is not easy - unless you use often regular expressions - the first time. And he does good professional software but we made loose the temper to more than one programmer while the program was not complete because of the necessary stress trying.
At the present moment I don't doubt try AUSPEX because of the reasons explained by others in the first link above.
Obviously the rest are not options for me at the beginning.
AUSPEX has the courage to try or experiment with the difficulties of the regular expressions. I have seen a post to orient with tricks about the use of the program
. Don't have a help file or a link to that post.
I am trapped several weeks ago with these type of programs during my holidays. Just because the word, in all its aspects, is the tool for searching and study.
At the present moment there are a few tools to summarize text, but really nothing about simplify the spanish language to improve the readability. There are projects now that seems in stand by waiting to end this year.
I try to download a free dictionary generator and fills my pc with viruses.
I try to learn conlangs
, but don't find a useful tool for me.
