Regular Expression Help: Replace in UltraEdit

Last Modified: 2013-12-13
hopefully this will come out right....

i have a text file that needs to have instances of GA replaced with GC...I was passed the following 2 commands from a unix guy (and i'm a windows guy) - so here is the disconnect!

1) how would I use these inside UltraEdit

2) what exactly (in english) is the function they are performing...i don't know what all the switches are commanding it to do.

1,$s/^\(C[0-9][0-9][A-Z][A-Z]      \)\([A-Z][A-Z]\)/\1GC
