Search And Replace Within Zip Files with Regular Expressions

There is a lot of shareware and freeware (jEdit, Notepad++) to do complex search and replacement in files but none is supporting these kind of operations in zip files spread across many subdirectories. Luckily Oxygen Editor can

  • Do case sensitive or insensitive searches,
  • Search and replace across multiple files in multiple subdirectories,
  • Search and replace also in ZIP files,
  • Advanced regular expression search/replace,
  • Is free to evaluate for 30 days!

Use the Menu "Find" and select "Replace in Files" or use the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+H


Oxygen can also create backup of every changed zip files,  as as shown in the picture above.
