SQLite RegExer 2.3
Suggest New Tag::
Regular Expression Sqlite
This program can be used to perform Regular Expression find and replace on unencrypted SQLite databases including e-Sword and theWord modules (*.cmtx, *.dctx, *.twm, ...).
It can be also used to view and edit any SQLite database, and perform regular expression find, find/replace and SQLite statements.
(If you use it with theWord modules, you have to decompress the module and convert it to rtf before using this program)
1- Click "Open" and browse to the file you want to edit. The file can also be dragged into the form.
2- The "Tables" list will be populated with the names of tables in the file.
3- Select one of the tables, then the "Columns" list will be populated with the columns in that table. Select the column for which you want to perform replacement.
The selected table and number of rows will be displayed above the "Tables" list.
4- You can test your regular expression find and replace patterns using the "Test" button, and using sample text in the "Sample" textbox.
5- Then click "Replace" to perform the regular expression find and replace.
6- Finally click "Close" to close the file.
- The "Save" button saves the currently displayed find/replace pair with a given name.
To load a pair, select its name from the "Find/Replace pairs" combo box.
1- Increase or decrease the font size in the whole module using the "RTF Text Resize" button:
Select a table and a column.
Enter a number with + or - sign (+2, -3, ...) in the text box to the left of the button and click on the button.
This finds each (\\fs\d+) and increases or decreases the font size.
2- View and edit any table in the module:
Double-click any table in the "Tables" list, or click "View Table" to view the selected table in the "Table Viewer".
In the "Table Viewer" window, double-click an item to open it in the "Item Viewer"
The rtf code can be edited and then clicking "Update" button will save the changes.
3- View and edit the content of any item in the table:
Select a Table and a Column, and enter the Row number.
Click "View Row" to open the "Item Viewer".
Edit the rtf code and click "Update" to save the changes.
4- Search for a regular expression in any column in a specific table in the file:
Select a "Table" and a "Column".
Click "Regular Expression Find"
Enter a regular expression and click "Go" or press "Enter" to begin search.
Any result can be edited in the "Item viewer" by double clicking.
For example, to find different font tags in the column, enter \\fs\d+ and check "Only show first match". This will show all font sizes used.
Two options are given: To show results in groups and to show the first match that is different than previous matches.
5- Compact the database or drop a table:
Right-click "Tables" list.
6- Execute a non-query SQLite statement:
Click "SQLite statement".
Enter a non-query SQLite statement (create, drop, insert, update, delete, replace, vacuum …)
Click "Run" or press "Enter".
The statement will be executed and the result will be displayed.
Features of the Item Viewer:
This displays the rtf code.
1- To view the formatted text (the text which will appear in e-sword or theWord), check "Show RTF" to the top right.
2- You can do any changes to the rtf code (to the left) and click "Test" to see its effect on the formatted text to the right. (This doesn't change the original file)
3- To update the original file with your changes, click "Update" (This updates it with the code in the left box)
3- You can test any regular expression find and replace using the "Replace" button. To see the effect on the formatted text, click "Test" afterwards. (This doesn't change the original file)
4- To find the first matching rtf code for a word or more in the right pane, highlight the word, right-click and select "Find first matching rtf".
5- If the rtf code doesn't contain fcharset, which makes the text not display properly non-English characters in the right pane, enter charset (161 for Greek, 177 for Hebrew, 178 for Arabic ...). Then check "Show RTF"
6- Highlight a word in the left pane, enter charset (for non-English characters, as before...), right-click and select "Get Text" to see the text.
7- Pressing (Ctrl+F) pops up a find box for both rich text boxes in the Item Viewer. It finds text in the rich text box in focus before pressing Ctrl+F.
8- When "Show RTF" is checked, any text and/or images can be pasted from MS Word and saved using "Save" in the context menu of the right pane. Note that this will update the rtf header, so don't use it if you don't want to change the header.
- Please keep a copy of the original file, in case something went wrong.
- Regular expression replacements, font size replacements and SQLite statements do not affect already open Table Viewers or Item Viewers.
