Search & replace

Hi all

I have fedora test 3 and I''m looking if there is any search/replace functionallity that can also process subdirectories.

I' need to update 1000+ pages

I kinda think it  will take too much time to do this by hand

Hi x_terminat_or_3,
There is a program called 'sed' which is a streamline editor which you can specify search and replace as regular expressions. You can call this from a suitable 'find' command to process all files within a particular directory(ies).

No problem. Post here if you need help with the search and replace regular expression as they can be a bit nasty if you are not familiar with them.
