Quick delete/replace of lines in GPX/TCX file ?
I need delete or (if it’s not possible) replace with zero data many lines like this:
Of course digits are not the same in every line…
OK, as I see
Replace <gpxtpx:hr>.*</gpxtpx:hr> is working…
But how can I quickly delete an empty lines ?
Find \R\R and replace with an empty string should do it, unless your “text” file has a different character set.
You’d need to determine the exact character which denotes a carriage return/line feed for your text file. Whatever the character is, an empty line should mean 2 of these characters together. Search for those and replace with an empty string.
Sorry, I need to revise slightly my previous answer. If you follow that solution you will finish with 2 lines combined. I’ve actually considered a slightly better answer.
What this does is find the first CR/LF (you may need to replace \R with the correct CR/LF character your file has). Then there has to be 1 or more additional CR/LF characters. We only keep the first CR/LF character, removing all others. This will cater for situation of multiple empty lines together, as \R+ greedily consumes as many CR/LF characters as possible.
I have to ask the question though, is the line truly empty or does it have 1 or more spaces in it? Spaces will require a different expression. If spaces then:
The caveat here is that \h refers to both a horizontal space, a tab and a line feed. Depending on the character set used a \h might also refer to part of your CR/LF. If so then replacing \h with \s might fix it.
