I have a large file with plain text (no html tags, etc.). What I want to do is to apply regex to whole file on the one hand but on the other I want to choose which changes will be applied.
For example if I have a regexp like /house/ -> home I want to see some sort of preview and decide to which occurrences it will be applied, for ex. first and third.
What I need is editor which displays not only the preview of changes (something like powergrep editor (powergrep.com))but allow me to choose which changes to apply within. Let me give you a brief example. I want to change word Alice in whole book "Alice in wonderland" expcept first occurrence on page 55. Sure I can do the replace all and then change this one word on page 55 but that's not what I want.
