REPLACE(1)									       REPLACE(1)

NAME
       replace - A utility program that is used by msql2mysql, but that has more general applica-
       bility as well. replace changes strings in place in files or on the standard input. Uses a
       finite state machine to match longer strings first. Can be used to swap strings.

USAGE
       replace [-?svIV] from to from to ... -- [files]

       or

       replace [-?svIV] from to from to ... < fromfile > tofile

SYNOPSIS
       replace [-?|-I] [-s] [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       replace

       -?|-I  info

       -s     silent

       -v     verbose

EXTRA INFO
       Special characters in from string:

       \^     Match start of line.

       \$     Match end of line.

       \b     Match  space-character, start of line or end of line. For a end \b the next replace
	      starts locking at the end space-character. A \b alone in a string  matches  only	a
	      space-character.
