NAME         top

       replace - a string-replacement utility

SYNOPSIS         top

       replace arguments

DESCRIPTION         top

       The replace utility program changes strings in place in files or on
       the standard input.

       Invoke replace in one of the following ways:

           shell> replace from to [from to] ... -- file_name [file_name] ...
           shell> replace from to [from to] ... < file_name

       from represents a string to look for and to represents its
       replacement. There can be one or more pairs of strings.

       Use the -- option to indicate where the string-replacement list ends
       and the file names begin. In this case, any file named on the command
       line is modified in place, so you may want to make a copy of the
       original before converting it.  replace prints a message indicating
       which of the input files it actually modifies.

       If the -- option is not given, replace reads the standard input and
       writes to the standard output.

       replace uses a finite state machine to match longer strings first. It
       can be used to swap strings. For example, the following command swaps
       a and b in the given files, file1 and file2:

           shell> replace a b b a -- file1 file2 ...

       The replace program is used by msql2mysql. See msql2mysql(1).

       replace supports the following options.

       ·   -?, -I

           Display a help message and exit.

       ·   -#debug_options

           Enable debugging.

       ·   -s

           Silent mode. Print less information what the program does.

       ·   -v

           Verbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.

       ·   -V

           Display version information and exit.
