DataMystic announces the release of TextPipe Pro 7.5, its enhanced text conversion, transformation, and report mining workbench. TextPipe 7.5 offers an improved user interface, with 160 new code page conversions to and from Unicode, including Japanese Shift-JIS and Chinese BIG5. Unicode text can be normalized, composed and decomposed, and Mainframe AS/400 reports can now be converted to comma-delimited format with the Mainframe Copybook Wizard.
TextPipe handles structured and unstructured reports, Mainframe files, delimited and fixed-width data, HTML and XML, spooled print files and text files of any size and dimension. Regarding its speed, Woolworths (South Africa) reports 400MB per minute throughput. TextPipe provides a single point of maintenance for all text processing tasks. Its visual development environment attempts to define and test tasks without coding. TextPipe can restrict the scope of a change to line and column ranges, CSV fields, lines matching a pattern, HTML/XML tags and attributes, and combinations of these. TextPipe can be automated, embedded, or scripted from the user's favorite programming language. Single user pricing starts at USD 299/EUR 279. A 30-day fully functional evaluation is available as a free download from the company's Web site.
