When data is entered as a string, it can be complex and difficult to filter through. By using the StringSearcher in FME you can use regular expressions to quickly identify where certain information is being stored.

This makes the StringSearcher great for doing schema checks, fetching information from long strings, or to separate features held as a single string into two.
