Global Search-and-Replace in Pe Text Editor

Before you shrug this tip off as something you'll never need, consider how much work it might save you, if you ever need to make changes to a whole bunch of logs, all at once!

Using the Pe editor included in all our TuneTracker installations, you can literally search and replace across multiple files, even if those files aren't even open...even if they're all just sitting idly inside a folder somewhere. Here's how it's done in the Pe text editor.
