Well, yes. It's just string bashing.
GUI? Why needs this a GUI?
Because I - and people like me - want to see what we're doing. A GUI is
extelligent: it contains, in itself, the knowledge how it wants to be
used, and makes it easy for anyone engaging with it to use it.
I really want to drag a document onto an application, get provided with
textboxes to type in (and ideally there'll be buttons and shortcuts for
that, too) and hit the 'ok' button to save the lot. I want it to be
quick and painless, because there are hundreds of the bloody things, and
for each of them I will have to look at the string and decide what path
to replace them with. I want to use my available time for the brainpower
side of things and let the computer do the things that are easily
automated, such as presenting me with all relevant terms in a table
where I can see them one underneath the other.
