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.

	   Note
	   The replace utility is deprecated as	of MySQL 5.7.18	and is removed
	   in MySQL 8.0.

       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.
