How about using sed to instead:
sed ’s:find:replace:g’ -i file.name(s)
‘-i’ tells sed to make the edits ‘in-place’.
Thank you for the information.
I’ve used sed before and it does look a more clean command to use.
At the time I needed to use it the knowledge of sed eluded me.
It appears the version of sed installed on macs is lame. I think I’ll stick with the PERL at least that works first time every time.
