That's kinda funky!

Do you have/plan to allow "wildcards"? For example in those other threads I've mentioned doing directory reads, and because of the way I batch stuff, I'll have a lot of stuff like

C/Docs/User/Desktop/Music/NewMusic/BetteMidlerWind1.mp3
C/Docs/User/Desktop/Music/Sets/BetteMidler/Wind1 PitchDn15%.mp3
C/Docs/User/Desktop/Music/BetteMidler/BetteMidlerWind1.mp3
C/Docs/User/Desktop/Music/Sets/BetteMidler/Wind1.mp3
C/Docs/User/Desktop/Music/Sets/BetteMidler/Wind1 SpdDn25%.mp3

So *Wind1* might find all those examples above. Maybe it could separately save the "dupes" list as well, which could turn into a "files to move around" list.

Thoughts?

Hadn't considered it, but I could include wildcard support. At present, it's good for lists that get pretty long (dozen or even hundreds of lines) where each line in the text file represents a single record.

For example

Name1 Birthday1
Name2 Birthday2
etc.

or...

Name1 websiteJoinDate
Name2 websiteJoinDate
etc.
