Import delimited data text files

Could delimited data text files (tab, comma, pipe,....) be imported into Textastic? The file would be made of a header containing the column names and then numerous records for the actual data. The search/replace feature of Textastic could then be used by column. In other words could the text data be viewed as in a spreadsheet with actions being performed by column (find, replace, sort,...).

Apples' Numbers application has major limitations such as the maximum number of rows.


You can edit those files as text files and use regular expression search.

But, it will be just handled like any other text file and not special in any way.
