 Tool of the Month: rpl

"The basic syntax of rpl is rpl 'oldtext' 'newtext' filename. It doesn't really get much simpler than that, now does it? Note that strings should be placed inside single quotes (') so that the shell doesn't try to treat part of your text string as a special character. If you're replacing a single word with another single word (in other words, no white space) then it's not mandatory to place your strings inside single quotes but it's a good habit to get into."
