Plain and simple, TextPipe is the most powerful text conversion, transformation, and re-purposing software money can buy – and you'll be productive with TextPipe in minutes, not days.

It's a Swiss army knife combining the best of regex, Awk, Grep, Sed, Word and Excel macros and other text processing tools into one neat interface.

Use it to mass search/replace across websites, extract data from huge log files, convert text encodings (e.g. ANSI to UTF-8), convert end-of-line characters, convert mainframe copybook EBCDIC files to PC format (Pro only), extract email addresses, extract mailing labels from reports and more. A unique system of restrictions control precisely where changes are made. For example, you can apply a lookup table or search/replace to just one column of a huge CSV file. Similarly, you can apply CaSe changes to text within HTML/XML tags or attributes, or even to all text NOT matching a pattern. The combinations are endless. You can also extract data from databases in XML, JSON, CSV and other formats, and post-process it, including pushing it into other databases, or even into Azure Event Hubs and IoT Hubs.

And it’s FAST! For a recent customer, TextPipe applied 603,000 different search/replaces against a 48 MB file in under 30 seconds! By design, TextPipe handles documents of any size with no slowdown, such as Excel CSV files with more than 65535 rows. It can also process compressed files in-situ, such as zip files, website log files, Microsoft Office 2007+ files, OpenOffice files and more.

If TextPipe's 100+ filters or 380 demo files don't suit your needs, you can roll your own using VBScript/Jscript.

As well as traditional perl-style pattern pattern matching, TextPipe offers the intuitive EasyPattern pattern matching language for beginners. For automated use, TextPipe can be scheduled via the command line or controlled from any programming language using COM. TextPipe Server can also take advantage of multiple processors.

Also, TextPipe was recently updated to version 10.8, it now has an awesome new Ribbon interface and can be downloaded for 64 bit operating systems.

atoutec Hi, be careful : When I bought TextPipe Pro through this site (sept. 2016), the fine print mentioned “After you purchase TextPipe it may be used indefinitely”… but I cannot use the SW anymore and the vendor (Simon Carter) confirmed that; in fact we have to pay a yearly fee ?

Simon Carter @atoutec: I don't agree that the fine print was wrong - it was right at the time for purchases made at the time. But if you upgraded after that point, then yes, it would be under the new model. We changed our business model 3 years ago, and DataMystic has delivered value to our users continuously for 19 years. Thanks for watching our progress!

atoutec @Simon Carter. I never would like to use a new version... Here is was you wrote in one of your e-mail to me in May 2018: "Hi Vital – I am not sure where that comment came from. If it is still on BDJ then it needs updating." ?!
Jun 26 2019 at 5:26am Copy Link
Simon Carter Thanks @atoutec the error is still there and I have asked BDJ to fix the text. For clarity, TextPipe has a 12 month license that requires renewal.

Dunking @simon carter: If I were to purchase this today, how long could I keep using it for without further payments?

Roberto Please, could you clarify the license model? Is this a suscription based software to get the program working? Just to be clear, can I use the program with my current version after 12 months or the software will not work at all?

Mike B Even on the DataMystic website it is difficult to find any mention of the fact that the software will only operate for 1 year unless the license is renewed. The only mention I could find is halfway down the page:

DataMystic software licenses are one year subscription licenses that also includes one year of upgrades - both major (e.g. 5.xx to 6.xx) and minor (e.g. 5.31 to 5.42).

Even that statement isn't exactly crystal clear - it could be easily mis-interpreted as 'updates are provided for one year'.

I feel vendors who do not make it absolutely clear that a purchase is for a time-limited license where software ceases to work after the subscription expires (a very unusual licensing model) are being deceptive.

Simon Carter @Dunking Thanks for your question - it is 12 months
DataMystic - Jun 27 2019 at 5:25am Copy Link
Simon Carter @MikeB - it's not deceptive or unusual - Office 365, every anti-virus software, every online SaaS product, all developer tools - it's hardly unusual.
DataMystic - Jun 27 2019 at 5:26am Copy Link
Dunking @Simon Carter: you need to change the fine print here, then, since it says it can be used indefinitely. I think you need to make it a LOT clearer on your site as well, and especially mention it in your license (which says nothing about it currently). I would be seriously put out to have paid what looks like a normal price for a subscription.

Simon Carter @Dunking We asked BDJ to update this 2 days before the deal. No change yet. Thanks for your suggestion
DataMystic - Jun 27 2019 at 2:12pm Copy Link
Mike B @Simon Carter: Office 365 makes it very clear that you're buying a subscription (for 1 monthly or annual).

Anti-virus also makes that clear (at least the ones I'm familiar with - there are so many that it's certainly possible there are deceptive vendors)

SaaS generally also makes it clear. Additionally it's clearly in a different category than desktop software (ie., you're buying a service running in a data center, not just software to run on your machine).

None of the developer tools I have are time-limited after paying for them. Again, I'm sure there are some, but I think they are in the minority. Many are geared toward corporate purchase - and the terms are made clear.

However, on the DataMytic landing page, the only time-frame mentioned in the "Buy Now" area is "1 Year Free Upgrades". On the "Add to Cart" page that the "Buy Now" button takes you to, the closest thing to a mention of the time-limitation is: "FREE upgrades during the license term...". In my opinion it is hardly clear that the software will stop functioning after 1 year.

Benjamin User While Office 365 offers subscription fees which I subscribed to. They also offer standalone license that can be used indefinitely (Office 2003, 2016, 2019, etc). The only point in buying Office 365 for me is to have a software up to date on both my Mac and PC with a cloud sharing.

Appart from that, I'd definitely buy the standalone license as there are no point in buying subscription fees for such software. I hate this business model but it sometimes is worth the money depending on important points I mentioned above.

Also, Office 365 can we either paid monthly or annually. I am a monthly subscriber and I'm looking for a cheaper annual fee for both Mac and PC.

I think you'd get more customer if you offer standalone license. You could make people pay for upgrade. For instance, those who paid version 1, could use it indefinitely but they'd have to pay for v.2, and vice versa. This business model is, imo, much better and would make your software more popular than the actual one.

If you have enough subscribers and you are happy with the actual business model then no need to change, but I have been paying too many subscription fee that I'm fed up with this business model. It's too expansive to keep up.
