Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting sed replace is giving me sore thumbs Post 303040902 by MadeInGermany on Friday 8th of November 2019 12:53:19 PM
The fixes are ^version to require the beginning of the line, and \" for a " within " ".
Short solutions:
Code:
sed "s/^\(version=\).*/\1\"$new_version\",/"  filename.txt

Code:
sed "/^version=/ s/=.*/=\"$new_version\",/"  filename.txt
