How can I use Shell script to edit row 23 column 5-8 in a txt file?
 
I have a txt file with 500 records/rows.

I want to edit row 23, column 5-8 of the file & change it to 'wxyz'.
I have to use UNIX shell scripting for this.

Can anybody help me in this?

Indeed you are asking the program for an editor dude...

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is being closed because it is a duplicate.

Closed in favour of the more sensibly placed dupe

And instead of responding to both threads in the same
manner you would have better reported it once.
