iFindText (was AskPoirot) is a utility to search in one go one or several sets of words in hundreds of files created by word processors, page-makers, etc. (except .pdf files). In fact, if you write a lot, there may come a time when you are in doubt whether a certain word has always been spelled correctly: here comes iFindText’s usefulness, since you can make a search of the mispelled word and after a while you will see which of your files contain the mispelled word.
It is also valuable for translators, journalists, and editors, as it allows to locate easily in which precise files a phrase or code expression is included. So, through iFindText it is possible to know how many times a given word/sentence occurs in all of your files and in each file.
