Delete same text line from many files
Bruce F., 2010-07-08 18:56:55
I need to delete the same text line from all files that are in a folder. This is often hundreds of files. Can I do this?

Hello Bruce,

Delete Lines itself can't do that directly, but maybe you could solve this problem by using a Batch file in combination with this program.

Best regards

Yes a batch does work.
Only the syntax is unclear. In the description it says fi:

-i file
The file from which the lines should be deleted.

Do I have to include the '-i' or not

or:

-s text
The search text.

With or without the '-s' and in between "?

Some examples of the command line would be MOST useful

Thanks
John

Hello John,

that's the command line syntax as stated in the help:
DeleteLines.exe -i file -s text -o file [-n] [-c] [-r] [-b number] [-a number] [-q] [-e1] [-e2]

So this would be an easy example:
DeleteLines.exe -i "C:\path\to\input.file" -s "any search text here" -o "C:\path\to\output.file"

And you can also use the program user interface to select all options correctly and then just click in the menue "Extras" on "Copy command line". This way you have the correct command line syntax automatically.

Best regards
Andreas
