I was wondering if anybody could recommend a program or plug-in (for an editor) to solve the following problem: I have a file with a large list (one line per item). I need to manually go through this list and pick out which items (ie. lines) to keep. Then I would save these lines to a new file.
Usually, I would just fire-up some suitable editor and put an asterisk at the beginning of the lines I want to keep, then use
sed to select these lines (and remove the asterisk) and redirect it to a file. But this time there are so many lines it would become cumbersome.
I was therefor wondering if anybody knows of a program/plug-in that would do something along these lines: A GUI "editor" that add a check-box in the front of each line, and where only the lines that are checked will be subsequently saved to a new file.
Bonus (not applicable to this problem, but may be handy another time): Tri-state or coloured check-boxes, allowing lines marked with different mark/colours to be saved in different files.
