Text Processing Utility

Text Processing Utility, or TPU, is a scripting language for the text editing program Borland Sidekick. Sidekick was an early personal information manager and one of the first windowed environments for DOS systems. The TPU syntax includes commands for manipulating files by copying, moving, renaming, searching and replacing text within files. It is designed to be user-friendly yet powerful enough to handle complex data processing tasks in an era when GUIs were not as prevalent as they are today.
