help! Script or command needed to replace text in a file.
I am relatively new to linux. I need to replace occurences of chars (", ', `, and \) with (\", \', \`, and \\). I do not know of a linux function that will do that, only a PHP one which is str_replace. I need these characters changed to the new ones because PostgreSQL and MySQL dont recognize these characters. Any help i can get would be great. I assume i will have to use sed or gawk but i am completely unfamilier with how those work.
