Revise is a command line text editing tool


Revise is a command line text editing tool, designed for quickly replacing text in a chosen file
and is intended to be a handy tool for developers to use generally and in particular with automated tasks such as those performed by Makefiles. Revise currently supports Perl-style regular expressions for matching keywords (courtesy of Boost.Regex). Although not currently available, Unicode support is planned for future releases.


Revise is avaliable for the following 32-bit platforms:

  • Windows (MSVC++ and GCC/MinGW compiled versions)
  • Unix-like systems such as Linux, FreeBSD (GCC compiled version)


This program is released under the MIT License.

-v: Display version information (exclusive)
