TextWrangler 4.5.12 Build 3398
Organized user interface
For your convenience, TextWrangler adds a panel to the left side of the main window where you can view a list of all opened files and the recently edited documents. This way you can easily switch between your projects.
The main area is reserved for the text content, while the bottom toolbar displays details about your file. Of course, most of the TextWrangler capabilities can be accessed via the app’s menus.
Extensive text manipulation capabilities
TextWrangler includes a wide range of options when it comes to finding pieces of text in your documents and slightly modifying them. The app is employing a “grep” style pattern-based search and replace algorithm that is using the Perl-Compatible Regular Expressions library.
The grep pattern recognition is also used to sort lines, to process duplicate lines, or to find differences. The content can then be sorted, extracted or subjected to other editing actions.
Syntax coloring support
TextWrangler can be used to apply syntax coloring patterns to content written in various programming languages, such as C++, ANSI C, Perl, Python, Tcl, TeX, Object Pascal, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, Python, Rez, Ruby, or to Unix shell scripts.
Noteworthy is the fact that TextWrangler can be integrated with various Unix tools and scripts via a command line tool. Moreover, TextWrangler is also able to open, edit and save files that are stored on remote FTP servers.
Rich featured text editor with great search and replace options
TextWrangler provides an intuitive and efficient text editing solution that is able to detect patterns by using the “grep” function, allows you to set up complex find and replace rules, includes syntax coloring capabilities and much more.
To conclude, the plethora of tools and functions packed within TextWrangler will certainly make the application a great addition to your software collection.
