In BBEdit on the Macintosh:
- Hit Command+F for Find...
- Tick the box beside "Use Grep"
- Enter "$" in the "Search for..." box
- Enter "<br>" in the "Replace With..." box
- Hit the "Replace All" button
Et voila! I count eight keystrokes/mouse clicks in total, making this easily as efficient as vi/command line jiggery pokery, if not quite as satisfying.
: to replace tab
s with <dd>
s, simply repeat the steps above, substituting "\t" for "$" and <dd> for <br>.
