ZENTRUM FUER DATENVERARBEITUNG
The problem you mentioned in your Humanist message of 11 oct
could be solved by TUSTEP with the following lines
(blanks in col 1-3 means comment):
source - name of the source file
dest - name of the destination file
the program copies those lines which meet the following
the string "vivir" must be present.
For the sake of finding this string, the text should
be transformed (without changing the text itself)
according to the following rules:
treat u as v
treat b as v
treat j as i
(the number of replacements is practically illimited;
not only single characters, but also strings may be
replaced, exceptions given etc: eg.:
means: treat "ph" as "f", but not if it is part of "phd"
The TUSTEP editor allows you to do similar
searches also online, interactively.
