Try like this:

Code:
while read a b c; do sed -e "s/$a/$c/g" R*; done < INP

Code:
If output looks good , use -i to edit the file directly ( can not undo ) .

cat INP:
value1 = url1
value2 = url2
value3 = url3

cat R1:
value1
value2
value3

value4
value2

cat R2:
value1
value2
value5

NAME
purple-remote - Send remote commands to Pidgin/Finch SYNOPSIS
purple-remote [-command1] [-command2] [-...] DESCRIPTION
Send remote commands to Purple. This program uses DBus to communicate with Pidgin/Finch. OPTIONS
Each command is of one of the three types: [protocol:]commandname?param1=value1=value2&... FunctionName?param1=value1=value2&... FunctionName(value1,value2,...) The second and third form are provided for completeness but their use is not recommended; use purple-send or purple-send-async instead. The second form uses introspection to find out the parameter names and their types, therefore it is rather slow. Here are some examples: jabber:goim?screenname=testone@localhost=hi jabber:gochat?room=TestRoom=conference.localhost jabber:getinfo?screenname=testone@localhost jabber:addbuddy?screenname=my friend setstatus?status=away=don't disturb quit PurpleAccountsFindConnected?name==prpl-jabber PurpleAccountFindConnected(,prpl-jabber) ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWgnome-cd | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface stability |Volatile | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
