NAME
       git-sed - replace patterns in git-controlled files

SYNOPSIS
       git-sed	[ -c ] [ -f flags ] search replacement [ flags ] [ -- pathspec
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       Run git grep and	then send results to  sed  for	replacement  with  the
       given flags, if they are	provided via -f	or as the third	argument.

       Also runs git commit if -c is provided.

OPTIONS
       -c

       commit  the  resulting changes with a standard commit message detailing
       the exact command ran. It will fail if there are	unstaged changes.

       <flags> -f <flags>

       will use	the given regex	flags in the sed command (for example "g"  re-
       places multiple times on	the same line).

       <search>

       the pattern passed to grep and to the first part	of the sed expression.

       <replacement>

       the replacement passed to sed, the second part of the sed expression.

       -- <pathspec>

       limit	 the	paths	 which	  will	  be	applied	   on.	  Read
       https://git-scm.com/docs/gitglossary.html#Documentation/gitglos-
       sary.txt-aiddefpathspecapathspec	 for  the  supported patterns of path-
       spec.

EXAMPLES
       $ git sed 'my_function' 'do_stuff'
       # ... only does the changes, without committing
       $ git commit -m"use proper function name"
       $ git sed -c 'do_stuff' 'stuff'
       # .. does the changes and a commit
       $ git sed -f g do_stuff stuff
       # .. g is actually pretty important, otherwise you will miss some
       # stuff!
       $ git sed 'my_method' 'do_stuff'	-- lake/
       # ... only replace 'my_method' occurs under lake/.
