Free Software Utilities

Home

These are some utilities I've made to make my life easier, or just to show someone else how to do something. Unless stated otherwise, these require the .NET framework--get version 2.0 here.
StoreIt (.jar) v7.2
Windows, Mac

Updated on 08/10/2007

Freeware text utility that searches multiple text files. Display, edit and print entries in .csv files exported from Palm pilots, etc.

Requires prior installation of the Java runtime environment (JRE) version 5 or later. The JDK is a superset of JRE and is also perfectly adequate.

On Windows, you may also want to use this icon for your StoreIt shortcut.
