    I need some help please.

    I have a list with URLs including addresses with subdomains, and now i want to remove all the subdomains from the list. Does someone know a tool or a trick to do this automatically? I'm on windows xp-sp3.

    Hello,

    Then open it in a good text editor like notepad++. Then, use its find + replace function, which is very powerful and supports regular expressions.

    You can then specify that you want to replace:

    Find: something.com[0-9][a-z][A-z]*.

    Replace: something.com

    This is just a crude example, but this will remove anything alpha-numerical beyond something. And if you have dots, dashes etc, then you can simple use the *. wildcard, which "means any number of any characters."
