I am a data conversion expert and is using UltraEdit text editor for easier conversions using wild cards and small macros. I need to know whether there is any better wild card replacement text editor that will be useful for me. Please give your valuable suggestion.

Wild card replacement text editor
Being a programming Editor UltraEdit is a good tool for all sorts of operations like ftp, maros, simple html editor etc. But being a shareware you have to pay for the program to own it.
Some other top editors are: Bluefish, JEdit and Notepad++
BlueFish: This program has Search and replace in files on disk with support for Perl Compatible regular expressions. It can integrate with external programs like make, weblint and lint.
I would suggest using Notepad++, simply because of its capability of syntax highlighting and folding. It’s very powerful in terms of find and replaces using regular expressions. For example:
replace it with
Basically you have to use expressions:
Search for: get_(.*)();
Replace with: 1();
