Global search & replace in files ??

Hello I want a search & replace text in source code for several
files in several directories.

It would seem that both Dreamweaver MX 6 and GoLive 6 offer this
feature but not for .aspx file types.

Is there a hack that sets the configuration files for one of
these programs and fools the program into allowing the global
search and replace?

Dreameaver MX 6 seems to have remarkably weak help functions and
configuration.

GoLive has an entire folder of file mappings!

C:\Program Files\Adobe\GoLive 6.0_ENG\Settings\FileMappings\

Modifying this file: "default.aglfmi" to include an aspx
extention with the same properties as asp did nothing!, the find
in files ignores it. Maybe it isn't used?

I know there are a 1000 utilities out there but this is the 21st
century. By now one would expect standard source code editing
programs to contain basic functions such as a configurable find
& replace in text files. No need to suggest a utility as the
Microsoft dot.net editor has this feature. I'm still curious
about getting it to work in Dreamweaver MX 6 and GoLive 6.
