Find in files...
« on: 2012-Aug-22 »
It would be great if we had a "Replace in files..." function, that searched the current projects files and replaced a certain string? Currently I replace, lets say a variable name, in a file then manually go through the rest of the project files searching and replacing as I go... and I have a LOT of files in my largest project.  ;/

I just added a plugin to my editor that does just that.  8) In addition, it supports regular expressions.  :nana: On the other hand, I don't use the IDE at all anymore since I found a way to compile on Linux, and I kinda miss all the handy tools, like the keycode checker.  :'(

If you ever feel like using another editor, try gedit + this find&replace plugin
