"Replace Text String" app for files

This project started out as a code example I made for someone on the Clickteam forums on how to search a file for text and replace it. After playing around with my own code for a bit, I expanded it into a full UI that can batch process a number of files and make the same replacement in all of them.

It's not fancy by any means, but if you just need a quick, portable program that will search one or more files for a particular piece of text and replace it with another (or remove that text by replacing it with nothing), this will do the job.

It's plain, simple and dirty but will get the job done. If you want to search with Regular Expressions you're better off using a more advanced tool. I was debating even releasing this because it's so simple, but hey, maybe somebody will find it useful.
