TextMaster is an extremely powerful and unique flat file editor. It allows you to very quickly and easily query your fixed/delimited files, as if they were an SQL database. This means that you can SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE, records from your data file without having to import it into a relational database.
If you're not an SQL master, don't worry we have many easy examples, and a wizard to walk you through the query building process!
Besides the usual SQL operations, you can perform other functions that are text file specific, such as splits or joins, removal of duplicate records, editing of columns, transforming multi-line text into a single line.
No matter what type of data file you have, no matter the size or structure, TextMaster is for you!
