    Something else to consider: Can a phrase be split across two lines? Can a word be hyphenated across a linend?

    You might consider doing a Google search: find and replace program I got a fair number of hits and some that were free.

The file contains some 100 million words and the needles are short phrases of 2-5 words. From tests I can see that the replacement only takes place for 1-2% of the...

    Oops! I misinterpreted the meaning of "reverse". The item order is swapped, instead of the whole string being reverse(). It's pretty simple to change my code to swap the order of the items.

    Apologies that I missed the bad quoting :-( I specifically said that splitjoin should be assigned to a function key! You've proven that playing with the ENTER key is tricky :-) Best advice: Don't do it! When you muck it up, you have to use a different editor to fix it. If you'd like my smart_enter.the to play with, click on my name and send me a private email with your email address to send it to.

    When you invoke THE are you using -p to point at your theprofile ? I've never tried using a .kex filetype. That would require a SET COMPAT command, issued from a .the macro, if I understand the docs. Maybe using -p to invoke theprofile.kex would work, but I've never tried it. The profile is, in my experience, one of the hardest things to debug and redefining the ENTER key can be very tricky! I've done it and presented the results at the 2012 Rexx Symposium: http://www.rexxla.org/events/2012/presentations/LesK/RexxSymp2012_LesK_Transforming_THE_publish.html...

    Walter: Don't forget tthat you can use Gil's orxver.bat to create a backup of your current version that it can restore in place of 5.0.0 while saving it too!
