|sed one-liner to replace based on grep results
||[27 Oct 2004|12:20am]
I used this to replace a mistake in the address at work that was
made in dozens of files. It replaced every occurrence of " 9 Temple
Place" with " 59 Temple Place", recursively.
sed -i 's/\ 9\ Temple\ Place/\ 59\ Temple\ Place/g' $(grep -lr " 9 Temple Place" ./*)
If you wanted to play it safe and make a backup of all the files
that were changed, you would replace "-i" with "-i.bak" or whatever
suffix you like to use for backups.
