I've got a whole bunch of text files from around the web, and they have various symptoms of format nastyness. I've decided to spend my bus ride time sorting them out.

A lot of these files are text files with hard returns every ~80 characters. On a desktop I'd use something like Word to search out double returns and replace them with a marker, then replace all the remaining returns with spaces, then replace the markers with double returns.

On my 3100, I can do that with Textmaker. On my 3000, with pdaXii13, I tried to do that with Abiword - but Abiword's search function doesn't support any special or formatting characters whatsoever - It's basically on the same level as Notepad! I'm getting tired of toting 2 Z's everywhere I go, so I'm hoping to find a solution under pdaXrom.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm trying to prep these files so that I can read them on my Librie ebook reader.
