Feature request - option to ignore binary file detection

Aug 20, 2013 at 1:39 PM
I've got a large batch of XML files that have somehow accumulated a number of trailing binary zeros at the end of the file. I'd like to consider using this Find And Replace Tool to perform the processing step of stripping these binary zeros, but these files are being identified as binary and I am unable to process them.

I understand the intent to avoid processing binary files, but it would be useful to allow a configuration option to ignore the binary file check if deemed appropriate by the user.

I created a case for this and will try to fit it into 1.4.

Thanks for submitting this feature request.
