I'll check it out.

Kevin, is your "todo"-list or roadmap publicly available?

I've lot of questions related to nALFS ...
only few here:

- exists something like a screenplay for nALFS?

- the current handler for search_replace uses "selfwritten" replaces. This 
handler could not search for patterns. How about to change it to use the 
system's sed?

- also I like to repeat my question about filename-handling for search/
Don't know, why most occurences of sed don't use the -i option but copy the 
file away and use different files for in and out (may be cause of 
sideeffects) - but sometimes sed is used with 2 really different files. One 
to read from and the other to write to.
What do you think about the possibility to be able to specify such in an nALFS 
profile? (i.e. something like *infile* and *outfile*)


Kind regards
