    Unfortunately very buggy in the replacement string handling: can enter in a loop and generate GB of temp files with a simple (fart myfile.cfg "\\" "/") or just fail when using special chars like \,/ and others... Tested: 1.99b I suggest the alternative command tool 'gsar' from "GnuWin" project on sourceforge

    Very nice utility all-in-all. I just can't make it to replace "\" by "/" in a file containing a windows path. fart.exe temp.txt "\" "/" fart.exe temp.txt "\\" "/" Nothing works, all help appreciated!!!

    It might sound as a stupid solution, but if you are using the -b flag, you have to create the bak file first (add one copy command in your script). The "detected as binary" problem is also in other encodings, so you have to use the -b flag all times :-) However the good side of this app is teh fact, it is very fast even on big files.
