Bare Bones Rustles Up TextWrangler 1.0

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Rustles Up TextWrangler 1.0 -- Bare Bones Software has released Text Wrangler 1.0, a $50 general-purpose text editor without the extensive feature set (particularly the HTML features) or $180 price of its highly regarded sibling BBEdit. TextWrangler can open and edit nearly any text file, including those with Unicode (UTF-8 and UTF-16) character sets, and features speedy search and replace (including PCRE matching - PCRE stands for Perl-Compatible Regular Expression), syntax coloring, FTP file access, and more. With the release of TextWrangler, Bare Bones has discontinued the free BBEdit Lite; owners of BBEdit Lite can upgrade to the full version of BBEdit for $120 until 31-Mar-03. To help users differentiate between its editors, Bare Bones has posted feature comparisons of TextWrangler versus BBEdit 7.0 and TextWrangler versus BBEdit Lite 6.1. TextWrangler 1.0 is available in a 30-day full-featured demo version, which is a 9.8 MB download. [JLC]
