With TPIPE can I do:

1 - replace BOL then [, then any number of chars, up to and including ], with nothing, thereby removing the search phase?

2 - replace EOL, BOL, space, with a space?

for example:

NOTE next line is before, 2nd line is after replacement
[] error on this page
error on this page

=============================
NOTE next line is before, 2nd line is after replacement

this is an error on page 500
capitalization

this is an error on page 500 capitalization

1.

Code:
v:\> echo [foo]bar | tpipe /replace=4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,"\[.*\]",""
bar

2. I use this alias for replacing newlines (and tabs, and multiple spaces) with a single space.

Code:
v:\> alias crunch
tpipe /replace=4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,"[ \r\n\t]+?"," "

Code:
v:\> type now.txt
now
        is
  the
       time.

v:\> type now.txt | crunch
now is the time.

Here's a better one for #1. It only gets rid of [...] at the beginning of the line.

Code:
v:\> echo [foo]bar[foo]bar | tpipe /replace=4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,"^\[.*\]",""
bar[foo]bar
