NAME
       replace - a string-replacement utility

SYNOPSIS
       replace arguments

DESCRIPTION
       The replace utility program changes strings in place in files or	on the
       standard	input.

       Invoke replace in one of	the following ways:

	   shell> replace from to [from	to] ...	-- file_name [file_name] ...
	   shell> replace from to [from	to] ...	< file_name

       from represents a string	to look	for and	to represents its replacement.
       There can be one	or more	pairs of strings.

       Use the -- option to indicate where the string-replacement list ends
       and the file names begin. In this case, 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.  replace prints a	message	indicating
       which of	the input files	it actually modifies.

       If the -- option	is not given, replace reads the	standard input and
       writes to the standard output.

       replace 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 ...

       replace supports	the following options.

       o   -?, -I

	   Display a help message and exit.

       o   -#debug_options

	   Enable debugging.

       o   -s

	   Silent mode.	Print less information what the	program	does.

       o   -v

	   Verbose mode. Print more information	about what the program does.

       o   -V

	   Display version information and exit.
