1.7 - The Selection Edition

First of all, a big thanks to all you loyal users. The truly skyrocketing download numbers have been my greatest reward and motivation.

Now what's in the box? For me the coolest is subselects: You can apply a pattern to the file list to select only a few for further processing. Useful not only for very large lists, but also to find more than one pattern in a file, which is somtimes hard to state in a single regular expression.

Then you can save an load patterns for search or replace, there is a toolbox that allows to change the character encoding or the line break character, and ultimately, for users of Java 6 and higher, FAR has become sensitive for drag and drop. So you can now pull a bunch of files or directories onto the application to load all contained files into the list. And there is even more, check out the change log (http://findandreplace.sourceforge.net/changelog.txt) for a full picture.

      I am very grateful for your guidance, for I didn't know how to ask questions before, now I am clear. I managed to relize batch search and replace operations,I have made some progress. It can execute batch command by reading a txt file now, but it cannot undo to the original files. I am looking forward to your improvements.
