No turning back now... ;-)
just fyi, most of us rev users would consider 25 seconds
to process 140 lines of text as very slow...
Of course I never use progress bars. I've processed 2meg files of raw
text mailing lists
(loaded into a variable of course -- close to 20M lines) doing similar
of empty lines and other garbage... in under 5 seconds.
And, yes, several of us also fell out of our chairs the first time we
I wonder if the replace (cr& cr) with cr would be even faster?
I'm interested because I'm about to embark on a major text re-purposing
job here... where I will be loaded a series of files one after another
and then executing the code and writing out the data again to the same
file (copies of originals)
