Hi. Linux Maximus here. Great show guys, not one excepted.
Sed and Awk are great but I don't do enough scripting or terminal commands to spend the time learning how they work. And just forget about regex. But need scripts that replaces one string with another string so I just love Rpl.
Here is the blurb: rpl is a text replacement utility. It will replace strings with new strings in multiple text files. It can work recursively over directories and supports limiting the search to specific file suffixes.
The syntax is really simple. Here is an example of replacing a string in a file
rpl "oldstring" "newstring" /path/to/file
It also has a other options like dry-run and backup of old files. Just run rpl --help and you get a easy overview of options. Very cool little project r us that like the terminal, but not That much.
