PiedSearch is a developer's utility that lets you rapidly search directories of code files for a target string. Each find is listed by file and line number. As the user selects each line, the context of that line is shown in a separate list, allowing the user to confidently asses the purpose of each find. That list can be expanded to almost the whole screen if needed. Each find can then be selected individually and replaced with a new value. All text-based options maintain a history, so most searches take very few clicks to specify and run.
PiedSearch is designed to be simple and fast. It can be regularly used in the work of a developer to examine the use of identifiers etc. in a body of source code. Its uncluttered, unambiguous interface provides the information he needs with minimal distraction. The option to do batch-replace of selected finds helps the user rapidly complete repetitive tasks. For more involved situations the user can from PiedSearch open a file in his preferred editor at a selected line, or else print out the list of finds and use it as a to-do list.
