Melbourne, Australia - May 19, 2020 - DataMystic announces TextPipe Pro 11.6, its enhanced industrial strength text conversion, transformation and report mining workbench.

TextPipe is a market leading self-service data preparation solution for data extraction.

Extract, transform and load (ETL) data from anywhere - giving super powers to your data-wranglers such as  ETL developers, programmers, data scientists and data analytics professionals. Connect to  multiple data sources including structured and unstructured data, cloud-based data, and big data. Handle Mainframe EBCDIC COBOL copybook data (single or multi-segment, packed fields, OCCURS etc) such as Sagent/Fiserv and Texas RRC, SSIS, HTML, XML, JSON, fixed length or delimited files (CSV, Tab, Pipe, etc), log files and reports of any size or dimension. Extract content from Word, Excel and PDF and more. TextPipe is an affordable alternative to Altair Monarch and Matillion.

DataMystic now offers pre-built patterns for common mainframe conversions such as Texas Railroad Commission Oil and Gas Masters.

TextPipe provides a visual interface where text filters can be designed, tested, documented - and understood by others months later.

TextPipe combines ultra-fast search/replace (e.g. 300,000 search terms), sorting of gigantic files, Unicode and code page conversion, extraction of esoteric mainframe copybook data, and website text mining tools all into the one convenient toolbox. Filters can also be automated and embedded into your favorite programming language.

Uniquely, TextPipe can restrict the scope of a filter to ranges of lines and columns, to a set of CSV or tab-delimited fields, to lines matching a pattern, to specific HTML/XML tags and more. Restrictions can be stacked together, e.g. to only change the ALT text of IMG tags with a hyperlink around them.

TextPipe is used extensively by data providers, mail houses, publishers, banks, federal and state government agencies, universities, law courts, systems integrators, DBAs and IT consultants - in 62 countries - by anyone that routinely deals with text.
