Why write code to process text when you can "pipe" it?

TEXTools is a nice pipe-based text editing workbench for Windows that allows you to morph text into other forms quickly. Fully working with TED Notepad filters architecture.

GNU Grep ver. 2.5.1 grep.zip 68kb
grep -a%2 -e %\1
%1	pattern
E extended regexps
i ignore case
v invert matching
w whole words must match
x whole line must match
n print line numbers too
o output only matching part

example (removes lines containing words hello or hallo):

grep -av -e"h[ea]llo"
GNU Cut ver. 2.1 cut.zip 9kb
cut -n %2 -%1
%1  (use "f" or "c", but only one of them)
f field[,field,..]
c charrange[,charrange,...]
N N'th, counted from 1
N- from N'th, to end of line
N-M from N'th to M'th (included)
-M from first to M'th (included)

example (fields 2,3,5,6,7,9 delimited by semicolon):

cut -n -d ";" -f2,3,5-7,9
