Segment ever faster

Have you ever thought why AppleTrans segmentation cannot go any faster? Here is a tip. When you segment the content with the segment tool, click Segment All while holding option key. That should make it different. The drawback of the speed gain is that you cannot undo this segmentation.

Segmentation in AppleTrans is a somewhat slow process, because the segment tool is based on pattern matching with regular expression. This concept, on the other hand, offers more flexibility in parsing the contents. The predefined rules are good samples you can start with to make your own custom rules.
