Text file Find and Replace - multiple substitutions, multiple files

willsherwood asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-13
i've inherited several projects that need PHP source file text substitutions across multiple files
in a directory.
There's a set of about 10 very simple (unique) text substitutions to perform.
no regex is needed.

i've looked at FAR and TextCrawler and they seem to only do ONE FROM-TO substitution across multiple files (albeit very elegantly).

Does anyone know of a tool that does multiple (simple) substitutions across multiple files?
