Using sed to replace text in files

16 08 2012

This is more for my own memory banks (or lack of) but some may find it useful.

So i have 100’s of text files (html in may case) and I want to replace a string of text in each with a new string of text.

So I will use sed

sed -i ’s/oldtextgoeshere/newtextgoeshere/g’ *.html

That’s all folks
