OK. Here is what I have done:

File yes.txt (before):
Code:
yes
why
when
what

File yes.sh:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
sed -i 's/yes/no/' yes.txt
sed -i 's/why/where/' yes.txt
sed -i 's/when/how/' yes.txt

Made it executable:
Code:
chmod 754 ./yes.sh

Execute it:
Code:
./yes.sh

File yes.txt (after):
Code:
no
where
how
what

I'm happily using LinuxMint while it gets updated as needed, so I guess it is version 14 by now... Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply!!!

Anyone using cygwin can please confirm if it works

Why don't you add a pwd and an ls -l to your script so you can see where it looks for the file yes.txt?
# 11  
Why don't it works in CYGWIN. See my output from Cygwin screen

Code:
# cat > yes.txt
yes
why
when
what



# cat > yes.sh
#!/bin/sh
sed -i 's/yes/no/' yes.txt
sed -i 's/why/where/' yes.txt
sed -i 's/when/how/' yes.txt



# chmod 754 ./yes.sh


# ./yes.sh


# cat yes.txt
no
where
how
what

Please share us your error output...
