REPLACE(1)                   MySQL Database System                  REPLACE(1)


       replace - a string-replacement utility


       replace arguments


       The replace utility program changes strings in place in files or on the
       standard input. It uses a finite state machine to match longer strings
       first. It can be used to swap strings. For example, the following
       command swaps a and b in the given files, file1 and file2:

       shell> replace a b b a -- file1 file2 ...

       Use the -- option to indicate where the string-replacement list ends
       and the filenames begin.

       Any file named on the command line is modified in place, so you may
       want to make a copy of the original before converting it.

       If no files are named on the command line, replace reads the standard
       input and writes to the standard output. In this case, no -- option is

       The replace program is used by msql2mysql. See msql2mysql(1).

       replace supports the following options:

       ·  -?, -I

          Display a help message and exit.

       ·  -# debug_options

          Write a debugging log. The debug_options string often is

       ·  -s

          Silent mode. Print out less information what the program does.

          Display version information and exit.
