Plugin to remove NULs on file loading



  • Hi all, I often have to work with big dimensions (100/200 Mbytes) file filled by chr(0) on a single line.
    Npp can open these file very quicly, but has a lot of problems in navigate them.
    So I wrote a batch file using “tr.exe” porting from linux:
    tr.exe -d “\000” < %1 > %1.trimmed
    I was thinking about creating a plugin doing the same thing while opening the file.
    First questions: any other idea?
    Second one: do you know if something already exists?
    TIA

    Yes, use notepad++ ;-) and record a macro replacing the \0
    and use a scripting language like python script or lua script
    or the plugin nppexec (? not 100% sure) to get it called on loading.

    Cheers
