If you have a lot of data that contains names which are disarranged and not sorted in columns then this handy tool called Mr. People can help you clean them up. Developed by Matthew Ericson, initially using Perl and then Ruby, this tool is as simple as it gets. You just need to paste the names from your data into the big text box, and then select whether or not you want to allow couples, the case and the output format, and hit submit. You should get the desired output in no time.
You can choose to have the names arranged in either a table or tab-limited text. The tool, as you can see in the above screenshot, parses the first, middle and last names, suffixes if any, and other such information. You may also have multiple names in a single row when entering the data. It’s all quick and easy.
- Parse names from your data easily.
- No sign up needed.
- Create a table or tab-limited text.
