Perl is another example of filling a tiny, short-term need, and then being a real problem in the longer term.

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.

* use <pre>...</pre> to insert a plain code snippet.
* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url" nospam>title</a> to insert links.
<a href="url" nospam>title</a>
* use other HTML tags, such as, <b>, <i>, <blockquote>, <sup>, <sub> for text formatting.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
