Free yourself from re-keying legacy data. Use ParseRat™ v2.0 to extract, import and re-map data from just about anything or to convert measurements:
- Fixed format lines up to 32767 bytes line length.
- Delimited Files - pretty much any delimiter and up to 500 fields.
- dBase files (up to 500 fields).
- Binary files: Many binary files consist of a header followed by a series of fixed-format records. ParseRat allows you to skip the header (if any) and export fields from the following records - with translation of binary numbers if needed. Ability to process "Packed Decimal" - COBOL Comp-3 type and "Big Endian" - Motorola pattern as well as "Little Endian" - Intel pattern binary numbers.
- EBCDIC: ParseRat can read EBCDIC files, typically used in mainframes and frequently forming legacy data to be imported to new systems. ParseRat can correctly handle packed, zoned and can translate binary numbers garbled as a result of character-by-character conversion of EBCDIC files by file transfer tools such as IND$FILE and Kermit. Provides a valuable junction between your legacy data and your new applications.
- Page Image Files (and other multi-record blocks), single or multiple records per page, with or without headers and footers, fixed format blocks or tag/flag-defined fields. Automatic detection of tags in files of XML format.
- HTML files and captured/saved web pages: ParseRat's ability to define single or multi-line blocks based on tags and to extract fields within them also based on tags makes it ideal to import data from structured web pages and HTML files (e.g. convert your NetScape bookmark or address file to a database or mailmerge file). Special routines are included to make data import quick and easy from HTML tables on web sites.
- XML: Automatic detection of tags in files of XML format.
- Take files posted as a result of users completing HTML forms on web pages and convert them into databases.
- As an alternative to input from files (of any length), data may be parsed from the system clipboard (very useful for extracting data from emails and web pages).
- Your proprietary library package doesn't provide a utility to export your collection data to dBase? No problem, just have it print catalogue cards to a print file. ParseRat will read the print file and extract the data for you.
