Data manipulation - File tweaking, extracting, counting, summing, etc.

This shows some small sample text we will use as input. You can click the "paste" button to simply paste any text into the Text Tweak software program. You can also click the file button and choose a text file, but most prefer to simply cut and paste the data into the software.

Sample data used as input:

This text tweak example shows you how to extract text out of file. You can easily extract data out of a file that is positional, in other words between any 2 positions in the file. You can do that using the option to extract between string positions. This example below however will show you how to extract out data which is not in the same positions on each row. For example if I want to extract the dates, I know they are 10 byte fields starting with 2012, so choose the option to extract strings starting with a field you enter, and continuing for any number of bytes you want to enter. In this case we are extracting all the 10 byte date fields out of a file no matter where they are located. It will then be displayed in a text file so you can cut and paste them elsewhere if you wish.

Here are the sample results that will open in notepad. Text Tweak always opens up the results in a notepad text file, so you may copy and paste elsewhere or work with the results in any other application.
