It is always difficult to ask a question whan you are unsure of your ground.
My problem is as follows. All of the files I have created as glossaries to use with a translation tool, I have created as CSV files with Notepad++.
I now have to convert them to text TAB files for use with OmegaT.
The idea of having to go through thousands of lines of CSV files and remove a character and replace it with a tab incenses me and I have no alternative.
I write and am only living on the periphery of the IT ball-park.
So my questions are:
1. Is simple script a way to do what I need?
2. If not are there other tools available as Notepad++ plugins which I could use?
3. Or has someone a better suggestion?
I look forward to any help I can be given.
Kind regards, PatrickForkin.

"copy to clip all text matching regex pattern"
Read about TextCrawler and its ability to replace search terms in files.
It allows you to create back-ups beforehand, so you can always be on the safe side.
There is also a tool TextRep which can do simple text (and multi-line) replacement, but this might be enough and also work for you.
