Ever had the job of finding and changing a piece of text that could be in hundreds of files? A typo in a template was used to create the company web site? Just moved office and the company address and phone number have changed? The Publicity Officer has just retired and his name is liberally scattered through tons of files? etc etc etc.

Well XChange can make this much easier for you. Just enter the text to find, the text to replace it with, drop in the files you want to work with, and press Go! It's done.
