RegExPal

RegExPal is a utility that works alongside of Paratext to do powerful search and replace on scripture text.

  • It lets you see your "find" go to work as you build it (it's dynamic).
  • It let's you see problems with your expression while you are typing it letting you know by a blue highlighter when it is invalid or not yet complete (because more of the expression is required).
  • When you do a replace you get to see a before and after view of the "replace" (one at a time) so you can see if it is working the way you want it to.
