Bare Bones Software released a major update to its popular text editor BBEdit. Version 12 brings support for macOS High Sierra, tons of new features/improvements, and fixes. One that jumped out at me is new support for column-delimited text and ways to manipulate this info. This sounds like a task required a switch over to Excel.
I've been using BBEdit off and on for probably close to 20 years. I've been using the free Textwranger for recent years because it better fit my simpler needs. Textwranger has been discontinued and those features are available as free within BBEdit. The full suite of tools cost $50 with upgrade options available.
