Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT]batch processing html files
Date: Wed, 30 Apr 2008 15:52:19
1 I have a folder full of .html files and I need to go through and replace in
2 each and every one of them a couple of bits of info. I know I can do this
3 using the following from the command line:
4 sed 's/VV, ppp-ppp/81, 51-67/' file.html > newfile.html | mv newfile.html
5 file.html
6 Problem is I need to do this on nearly 200 files. I assume it could be done
7 with a script, but I have zero experience in writing scripts. I've looked
8 through a few how-to's but haven't found anything I understand sofar. I want
9 to learn how to script, but my Prof want's this done yesterday as the
10 associated paper has just been published.
11 Cheers
