“I know of no other tool like PowerGREP. Inevitably, when I’m working with a coworker or customer regarding some data aggregation or parsing need, my solution time and time again has been to use PowerGREP to get it done. It really is an amazing, one-of-a-kind program.”

“I just don’t stop being amazed at PowerGREP. There is nothing to match it on any operating system. Every day I find some new amazing capability that makes it even more valuable. It’s worth every penny of its price many times over. Thank you for creating it, and also for the best documentation of RegEx to be found anywhere.”

The price of PowerGREP is the best money I’ve spent in a very long time! I’m mid-way through editing a 750 page web site that is full of the oddities that accumulate over multiple generations. I am making changes in both text and binary files, a total of about 4500 files.
So far, PowerGREP has made something near a half-million changes on these files, and has proven itself indispensable. I find certain features built in that are nothing short of delightful. For example, the name completion feature in the Folder field and elsewhere makes it extremely easy to navigate to frequently used folders without a lot of retyping.
PowerGREP, and its documentation, especially the Regular Expression Tutorial, is superb. Thanks for a fine product!
