Re: sed and find under windows

Try using the MS-DOS port of SED:

Oh... You'll probably want to do a FOR statement... something like:

for /f %%i in ('DIR *.txt') do sed %%i "s/pattern/newpattern/g"

for /? will give you complete syntax.

Re: sed and find under windows

Hi Ralf,

there are some Unix utils available on Windows without the cygwin layer.

Have a look at:

Hope this helps

Re: sed and find under windows

Can't give you a link, but there are 2 utilities which i have used and will allow you to run unix command in windows.

One is already menitoned "Cygwin"
Other one is Software Environment for windows
something.
