Re: VMs: VBScript for finding repeating strings

IMHO,  Perl is a good language for this kind of work, too. It has great pattern matching, string handling and sorting capabilities, runs on Windows and all UNIX flavors,  and is downloadable free of charge - also, there is lots of information available on it, including two excellent books from the O'Reilly company.
