NAME
       replace  -  A  utility program that is used by msql2mysql, but that has
       more general applicability as well. replace changes strings in(1,8) place in(1,8)
       files  or  on  the standard input. Uses a finite state machine to match
       longer strings first. Can be used to swap strings.

USAGE
       replace [-?svIV] from to from to ... -- [files]

       or

       replace [-?svIV] from to from to ... < fromfile > tofile

SYNOPSIS
       replace [-?|-I] [-s] [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       replace

       -?|-I  info(1,5,n)

       -s     silent

       -v     verbose

EXTRA INFO
       Special characters in(1,8) from string:

       \^     Match start of line.

       \$     Match end of line.

       \b     Match  space-character,  start of line or end of line. For a end
              \b the next replace starts locking at the end space-character. A
              \b alone in(1,8) a string(3,n) matches only a space-character.

EXAMPLE
       this command swaps a and b in(1,8) the given files:

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