When substitutions get serious.

XX transforms files through a predefined succession of 'find/replace' commands, building on Xsed, but in contrast to Unix sed, Xsed is not a true 'stream editor' - it loads files and then performs the requested transformation. So there's really no reason to not perform a succession of transformations if that's what's needed.

Creating and managing XX files is much as with CLIX or Xbase, the main difference being that you determine the order of the commands.

And you change the order of the commands by simply moving them where you want them.

You can also copy, drag, and move commands between XX documents.

And when you're ready? You just assemble the list of files to be processed and drop them anywhere on your XX window. XX shows you which files it's processing as well as the transformation it's currently running. Finally XX reports on the total number of transformations and changed files.


Because XX saves your transformations, and places them on screen where you want them - icons for the actual XX files themselves - it's the perfect tool for assembling substitution 'recipes' you'll need from time to time.

Download a site directory to change it; double click your XX file and drop all the files on the XX window; and WHOOSH! It's all done. With one mouse gesture.

Talk about improving workflow.
