Find & replace in Dreamweaver code to: add +1 to many id's

Hi,

I have many div's 300+ in a file in Dreamweaver and i was wondering if it is possible to search:
<div id="xxxx">

And replace that with:
<div id="_ftn1">

And the next with:
<div id="_ftn2">

And so on. This would save me tons of manual work! Is this possible with some kind of regual expression or something? If yes.. how?

Thanks

I do not know of any automated way of doing this. Probably in the time it would take you to find a solution, you could just search for the id="xxxx" and then change it manually each time. Provided that you only have this one document. 300 should not take more that 10-20 minutes

This will do what you want and leave the original file with .bak appended to the name.
perl -i.bak -pe 's{(<div\s+id=")[^"]+">}{$1."_ftn".(++$i)."\">"}e' input_file
