CodeTrawler is a skip code analyser. It allows you to search any text using any language that you have installed for encoded messages. Skip codes are very simple codes that place coded characters by skipping so many characters in the main text.
System requirements: OSX 10.2 (tested on 10.2, 10.3, may work on 10.1)
