Ron's Data Stream (formerly Ron's Data Cleanser) is a utility that permits you to automize the cleaning of data files as well as source jobs.
Ron's Data Stream is designed to update and clean a data source (for example, CSV files) through cleaner utilization, making the process more efficient. Cleaners are made up of a list of operations that can be built, saved, and applied to a data source as required. The preview window makes the comparison of the original data with the processed data very clear. Ron's Data Cleanser also includes a batch processing capability. This allows 100's of data files to be processed in seconds, making cleaning a whole directory fast and efficient.
Using Ron's Data Stream to create operating rules (the Cleaner) is simple - define the source, format, and output (the Job), combine and run.
