Nice examples with good explanation. I would need some help with following "problem"...?
I have a multiple textfile manipulating ("script conversion") problem...
1. one string on several instances in a template file and create new files with the string as part of filename
2. several strings on multiple instances in a template file and create new files with the 1st string as part of filename
I can do the first one with multiple sed commands that I create with column editor and copy&paste into command line;
but it would be neater to use one file as "input_file" to be runned against the template with some kind of looping?
The 2nd alternative would need to have several sed commands runned after each other which would be more difficult.
The command I use repeatedly on "1st problem" is sed 's/1234/ABC9628/g' ABC1234.txt > ABC9628.txt and it works.
Thanks in advance.
