- DEM Header: with great care
you can edit the DEM header. This will only save the DEM
in MICRODEM format.
The options below replace the original file, so if
you want to retain it, copy the file first. These options have
mostly not been updated in a long time, and may or may not be very useful at
this time. Some of the options put the entire file into memory, and may not work
with really huge files.
- ASCII duplicates: removes all duplicate lines
from an ASCII file.
- ASCII Sort: sorts an ASCII file in
- ASCII Sort & remove duplicates
- ASCII trim columns: allows you to remove
specific columns from an ASCII file. The file must have
data in aligned columns. You specify the first
column, and the number of columns, to remove (each column
is one character). If the file is short enough, use Excel instead.
- ASCII reverse order: make
- ASCII CR+LF: this option insures that every line
ends with a carriage return/line feel, the standard for
DOS and Windows, and needed for most input of text files
in this program. Some other operating systems do not use
the CR/LF pair and will cause problems.
- ASCII thin: you can thin the file. You can skip lines at
the beginning (and optionally put them in the output file, for instance they
are column headers), so that you get the first data line you want.
- ASCII randomize: takes a file, and randomizes the line order.
The first line will not be moved (potential header), but all others might.
If you want the first line randomized, after a first randomization, manually
move the first line, and then randomize again.
- ASCII remove
- ASCII remove #0:
- ASCII remove blank lines:
- ASCII remove tabs: Replace all tabs with a blank space. This may destroy
the alignment of the columns.
- ASCII remove commas: Replace all commas with a blank space.
- ASCII remove quotes:
- ASCII remove after delimiter
- ASCII remove leading character
- ASCII trim lines (removes leading and trailing blanks)
- ASCII insert header line: puts a header line at the start of a
file, as for example before CSV point file
- ASCII insert line numbers:
- ASCII find lines with substring
- ASCII split file:
- For a small file, you can pick a number of files, and
the lines in the file will be put sequentially into the
- For a large file or if you want, pick the number of
lines. The first header line will be repeated in all files.
- HTML cleanup: reduce the amount of HTML bloat inserted by
programs like Word.
- HTML inventory:
- HTML extract links: extract all the links from a single HTML file.
Use for batch download from OpenTopography.
- HTML create file links: create a web page with links to all the files in
- File Extensions--meant for use on a directory full of
- Change file extensions: select a new extension, and
replace the existing one.
- Add file extension: if the file has no extension, or a
number of periods in the name (like
ICOADS.166210.201203_13), this option will just append an
- Email cleanup: if you copy email addresses from the email, you
are likely to get something like "Peter
Guth [firstname.lastname@example.org]", which if you try to paste back into the email,
may not work. This is the case with Outlook, and a long list of
addresses. So this option turns the email into "email@example.com",
which will work for cut and paste.
