Search and replace operations on file content accross multiple files. Recursive operations within entire directory trees. FAR comes with support for regular expressions (regex) over multiple lines, automatic backup and various character encodings. Run grep like extractions to condense or rearrange sources, or perform bulk file renaming.

This can give you a dangerous feeling that you have looked for a string in and not found it when in fact the string really exists. In other words it has a few false negatives!
This is a very useful application. There is a functionality I would like to see: If I am looking for occurrences of a string in a set of source files, I would like to see these occurrences highlighted when I open the file from within FAR. Dont pay attention to DYCorp's review. That guy needs to learn about regular expressions.
did a recursive search of a single file under many directories . searched and replaced a string in those pom.xml files . it works! thanks for making the program. it will be great if the popup file viewer can highlight all the the search string.
This software can do batch regex replace on binaries with back referencing - and it is extremely fast
Very useful, you saved my life from wasting time :)
