Directory Printer 4.1
Directory Printer enables you to print or export directory (folder) listings, a capability which is not provided by Windows itself. Features include:
Comments from users:
"An amazing program. I love it."
"I'm so happy I found this program. I've been searching all over for a utility to do this."
"An excellent piece of software, very well done and extremely useful."
"I love this program. It's amazing that Windows doesn't include this functionality."
"Great little program. I found it really useful to make CD catalogs to put inside the jewel boxes."
"As far as I can tell, this program is unique. It saved me hours of work."
Directory Compare 2.3
Directory Compare provides a comparison of the contents of two directories (folders) and the ability to synchronize the directories. It includes the following capabilities:
Files in the selected directories are displayed side-by-side in a grid. You can choose various display filters to limit the listing to files existing in both directories, files which exist in one directory only, or files in both directories with a different size or date/time. Once displayed, files can be easily selected either individually or in groups and then copied, moved or deleted.
Comments from users:
"A very well done program."
"Invaluable for CD archiving."
"Extremely useful. Saved dozens of hours of tedious manual work."
"A real keeper. I can't imagine having done a recent project without it."
Super Text Search 3.1
Super Text Search is a utility which enables you to quickly search files for text. In plain ASCII text files it also allows you to replace text. You can search anything from a single file to an entire drive for any text you need to find.
Both plain text files (program source code, batch files, HTML files, etc.) and binary files (word processing and spreadsheet documents, PDF files, databases, even executable programs) can be searched, as can files archived inside ZIP, CAB or RAR files.
In addition to simple searches for words or phrases, the program allows you to use regular expressions (as found in Grep utilities, which will be familiar to the more technical among you) to perform more advanced searches including wild cards and various types of pattern matching.
After performing a search, files containing the search text can be viewed, edited or opened in their associated applications. Search results can also be printed or exported.
Comments from users:
"Great program - the first shareware product I've ever decided to buy after using it only once."
"Powerful and very simple to use."
"A very useful and sophisticated tool."
"I like this program very much. Other comparable programs are much more expensive."
"An excellent product that has saved me lots of time and work."
"Very fast and extremely efficient. It does exactly what I want."
Power Edit 2.2
Power Edit is a very powerful text editor for Windows. It is a far more functional replacement for Notepad and Wordpad, and an excellent tool for creating and editing Web pages.
With Power Edit you can simultaneously edit many files of large or small size, with lines of any length. You can quickly navigate between files with the simple tabbed interface, and can split each file window to see two views of the same file. The number of simultaneous open files is virtually unlimited.
Power Edit contains all the usual features expected of text editors and several that are unique. The search and replace function is especially powerful, including regular expression handling as well as soundex and approximate searches, which are found in few if any other editors. In addition, the program includes many text manipulation functions which are difficult to find elsewhere, such as removal of leading spaces, position-based text deletion, deletion of blank lines, conversion of data between fixed width and delimited formats, and extraction of e-mail addresses and Internet URLs.
The complete list of features includes:
Synergy Canada -
"Innovative and exceptionally useful"
Kickstart News -

Comments from users:

"Very useful for block editing, line removal and other text handling features."
"I love this program - it's the only one that can open my huge 40MB text files."
PDF Converter 3.0
PDF Converter is a utility to do batch conversions of four types:
PDF Merge-Split 1.1
PDF Merge-Split enables you to merge or split PDF files, and to edit some of the document properties. When merging, you may combine entire files or selected page ranges in any combination. This also enables you to rearrange or reverse the pages in a single PDF file. When splitting, you may split a file into single pages, by selected page ranges or by bookmarks.
