Simply magic!
I have many configuration files in XML format. I was looking for a way of inserting some auto-generated UUIDs as attributes within some XML tags. Actually I aim to uniquely identify some tags. Of course, I would avoid having to manually generate all the UUID as well as manually inserting them whereever it is required. That sounds tricky, isn`t it?
With the scripting capabilities of this software, the insertion of the required UUIDs was automatically done in no time.
