replace






replace − a string−replacement utility

replace arguments



     The replace utility program changes strings in place in
files or on the standard input.

     Invoke replace in one of the following ways:

     shell> replace from to [from to] ... −− file_name [file_name] ...
     shell> replace from to [from to] ... < file_name

     from represents a string to look for and to represents
its replacement. There can be one or more pairs of strings.

     Use the −− option to indicate where the
string−replacement list ends and the file names begin. In
this case, any file named on the command line is modified in
place, so you may want to make a copy of the original before
converting it.  replace prints a message indicating which of
the input files it actually modifies.

     If the −− option is not given, replace reads the
standard input and writes to the standard output.

     replace uses a finite state machine to match longer
strings first. It can be used to swap strings. For example,
the following command swaps a and b in the given files,
file1 and file2:

     shell> replace a b b a −− file1 file2 ...

     The replace program is used by msql2mysql. See
msql2mysql(1).
