Depeche View is a text browser that loads and views thousands of text files in one window, searching words by typing them, instantly and across all files.

STUTTGART, Germany. Vincent Stahl, computer artist and software developer, has released Depeche View 1.3.6, a text browser for Windows and Linux (WINE). "Speed is made from many little steps", says the author, "like loading all text files from a directory tree into memory, and a new presentation concept: there is no switching between files, but all contents are shown in one window. The user interface is reduced to the essential, without pulldown menus or dialogue boxes. A word is searched by typing it. Phrases are searched, bookmarked, or copied to clipboard by a mouse click. Putting this all together, Depeche View provides an unusual realtime behaviour."

The tool requires no installation, and therefore runs from any USB stick. Search operators are supported: typing "foo OR bar NOT bottle" finds all lines containing "foo" or "bar", but not "bottle". A config file allows to define own commands, e.g. to open files in an editor, or to extend the syntax highlighting. Bookmark lists present remembered words in a clearly readable way.

Depeche View Base is freeware, available for download under

www.stahlworks.com/dev/

A commercial edition with further scripting capabilities is also available.

This tool is primarily for software developers running many repeated searches, especially within Open Source code. But whenever there ist much ASCII text to filter, like CSV exports from spreadsheets, logfiles of a webserver, or html documentation, non-developers may find it useful as well.
