BSED - batch mode sed wrapper

Last modified: Apr 11 09:19


bsed is ``batch sed'', a wrapper for sed which batch edits multiple files, optionally reporting changes and making backups.

Unlike ``perl -i'' and some other tools, bsed takes care to overwrite the original instead of making a new one in its place, thus preserving permissions, ownership and links.

Usage is pretty much just like sed except that the named files are edited in place.
