I have one html file. I want to
1) search this file for IMG tags with only src attribute, e.g.
<IMG src="C:\Some Folder\1.jpg"> should be selected, but <IMG alt="alt img text" src="C:\Some Other Folder\11.jpg"> shouldn't be selected)
2) obtain value of the src attribute [from all the selections as in (1)] (e.g. "C:\Some Folder\1.jpg")
3) copy the image file from src location to another location, and replace the src value to relative path of that new location[for each of the selection in (1)]
regex should be the faster way to do the above tasks, otherwise I could have accomplished this with linear text processing.
