List de-spinner anyone?

So I have a list of anchors in "spintax" format {anchor1|anchor2}. Is there a tool around that can UN spin it? In other words it needs to be converted from spintax back to a list format with one keyword per line.

I don't want to have my VAs waste time manually converting these to list format. So any suggestions would of course be much appreciated.

    That's pretty simple to do with Notepad++ (free text editor).
    • Open your text file with Notepad++
    • Go to Search/Replace../Replace All, replace all of the opening brackets ({) with nothing (leave the Replace with box empty).
    • Go to Search/Replace../Replace All, replace all of the closing brackets (}) with nothing (leave the Replace with box empty).
    • For the pipe symbol (|) use (\n) & do the usual Replace All search & replace. This will create a new line in the text editor & move the word that follows any pipe symbol (|) down one line (repeats).

    Here's an example that I did following the exact steps above:

    {anchor1|anchor2}
    {anchor3|anchor4}
    {anchor5|anchor6}
    {anchor7|anchor8}
    {anchor9|anchor10}
    {anchor11|anchor12}
    The finished result is in the screenshot below.

    Wow I figured there had to be a way to do this in Notepad++. If we ever cross paths then I owe you a beer, or whatever your intoxicant of choice!

      Notepad++ is a good editor, plus it's free so your VA's can download it all day long.

      Really, for what your doing in OP, it's only 3 quick steps to convert the spintax back to a keyword list. Also Notepad++ doesn't bog down like some other text editors, you could process thousands of lines at one time & Notepad++ will run {fine|quick|great|awesome|fast}.

        It's definitely a useful program if you take the time to really dive in and learn it. Used to use it to search for base64 code in Wordpress directories but didn't think I'd need it outside of that.
        Thanks again.
