“CSVFileView is a simple CSV file viewer/converter utility that allows you to easily view the content of CSV or tab-delimited file created by NirSoft utilities or by any other software, in a simple table viewer. You can sort the lines according to one of the fields, remove unwanted fields and change their order, and then save the result back into CSV file, tab-delimited file, XML file, or HTML report.
CSVFileView doesn’t require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file – CSVFileView.exe
After running CSVFileView, you can open the desired CSV/Tab-Delimited file by using the ‘Open CSV\Tab-Delimited File’ option (Ctrl+O) or by dragging the file from Explorer into the main window of CSVFileView.
If the first line of the CSV/Tab-Delimited file doesn’t contain the column names, you should turn off the ‘First Line Contains Column Names’ option (Under the Options menu) before opening the file.
After opening the desired file, you can do the following actions:
Sort the lines by one of the fields, simply by clicking the right column header. If the column values are numeric, CSVFileView automatically makes a numeric sorting instead of string sorting.
Remove one or more columns or change their position by using the ‘Choose Columns’ window (F7). You can also change the position of the columns by dragging the column headers into another position.
Select one or more lines, or select all lines (Ctrl+A), and then saving them into csv, comma-delimited, XML, or HTML file, by using the ‘Save Selected Items’ option (Ctrl+S). You can also press Ctrl+C to copy the selected lines into the clipboard, and then paste them into Excel.
Unicode/Ascii Save Mode: By default, CSVFileView saves all files in Unicode, except of csv file, which is saved as Ascii. The reason for saving csv files as Ascii is… Microsoft Excel. That’s because Microsoft Excel doesn’t open properly csv files that are saved as Unicode.
You can change the default behavior, by going to Options -> Unicode/Ascii Save Mode, and then choosing the desired save mode – Ascii or Unicode.
Add Header Line To CSV/Tab-Delimited File: When this option is turned on, and you export the selected lines into csv/tab-delimited file, the first added line contains the column/field names.
First Line Contains Column Names: When this option is turned on, CSVFileView uses the first line of the opened csv/tab-delimited file as the column names list.
Automatic Numeric Sorting: When this option is turned on, CSVFileView automatically uses numeric sorting when numeric values are detected.
Opening Web Server Log File
With CSVFileView, you can also open a log file of Apache or other Web server that generates a log file in the same format. In order to do that, you should turn off the ‘First Line Contains Column Names’ option, open the ‘Advanced Open’ window (Ctrl+Shirt+O), type \s (space character) in the delimiter field, and ‘‘ in the quotes field. Choose the log file to open and then press Ok.”

This week’s Geek Software of the Week provides you with the option of not just deleting a file, which we all know, doesn’t really delete the file. What? You didn’t know that deleting a file doesn’t delete the file? Well, it’s the truth! All deleting the file actually does is mark it as deleted in the file table of your computer. The file is subject to then be written over by new data, which will eventually render it irretrievable, but, if you want to be absolutely sure that a file is gone forever and cannot be retrieved, then you need this week’s Geek Software of the Week! And, it is, Free File Shredder!
“With File Shredder you can remove files from your hard drive without fear they could be recovered. There are quite a few software tools today for retrieval of deleted files under Windows OS. Those tools, often referred to as ‘file recovery’ software, are taking advantage of shortcoming of Windows ‘delete’ command that we all use regularly to delete files. Actually, the ‘delete’ operation in Windows only removes bits of information from files so they appear deleted in OS. It is easy to retrieve those files using aforementioned specialized file recovery software.
In order to remove, or shred files permanently from your system you have to use a program that is capable of rewriting the files with random series of binary data multiple times. This process is often called shredding. That way, the actual content of the file has been overwritten and the possibilities to recover such a shredded file are mostly theoretical.
File Shredder has been developed as fast, safe and reliable tool to shred company files. The author of this program released it free under GNU licence and you are welcome to download File Shredder and use it without any restrictions. File Shredder is simple but powerful program that surpasses many commercial file shredders out there. The Author believes that such a utility should be available to anyone for free and that permanent and safe removal of confidential documents is a matter of basic right to privacy.
In File Shredder you can choose between 5 different shredding algorithms, each one gradually stronger than the previous one. It also has integrated Disk Wiper which uses shredding algorithm to wipe unused disk space.”
Have you ever had to do mindless, repetive things over and pover on your computer? Have you ever wanted to just turn on a piece of software, have it record all your keystokes, then play them back quickly? Well now you can!
This super tiny, no-install piece of software does just that, for FREE!
“Our most popular freeware, TinyTask provides quick & easy automation by recording/playback. It is a case study in minimalist programming: the entire program is only 33k — and over 14k are graphics, which means the executable portion is very small and efficient. It is used as the test harness for the “Recording” feature of vTask Studio.
New: now includes an EXE compiler! Turn your recordings into standalone programs. If you were stranded on a deserted island, this is the one program you would want.
There’s no installer, required files, or anything unnecessary; just a tiny program, which doesn’t touch your registry or system folders. Enjoy!”
