I've been using Python to manipulate XML files, and it's free and
friendly. Well, I sit with a lot of professional programmers, so I have
help, but they assure me that it's a wonderful scripting language compared
to many others. Did I mention that it's free?
Here's the download site: http://www.python.org/

batch processing of large numbers of text files?
Well, it looks like I will need to batch process a large number of ASCII
(plain text) system configuration files in the same manner, in order to
filter out information that I do not need, before I import them into
I don't know if this a proper topic for the list, but it takes me back to
UNIX days of using "sed" with great success (even for a non-programmer
me), to create a standard set of batch text processing instructions that
could be applied consistently and repetitively to large numbers of
pattern-based plain text files.
The question is two fold:
a) any sed FM users out there?
b) are there other similar (economical) options for batch processing of
Comments and opinions are most welcome.
