Looking for a multiple file search and replace tool, prefer graphical


Yah, i need a multiple file search and replace tool for linux. Prefer one with a GUI, but i will use a console based one as well. i tried a perl script for bsd, but it didn't work. i forgot what it was called.

thanks!

Have you tried Quanta? It MAY be able to do that, not sure.

Something for me to remember ;-)

I know Macromedia HomeSite will do this - I've done it many times. I've tried to get it running through Wine/CrossOver Office, but haven't had alot of luck (haven't really dug into trying to figure out why too deeply, though. I've been pretty happy with Quanta) I'd be VERY surprised if there WASN'T an easy way to do this via a shell/php script, though.

KRename

Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but hopefully it helps. Here's a nice little KDE app called KRename that, according to the website, "offers an easy way to rename hundreds of files in one go, giving you as much freedom as you need. You can use parts of the old filename, information like the current date or even an mp3 tag or the colour depth of an image."

It'll also integrate into Konqueror or the Krusader file manager. I've used it just a little bit, but it's a pretty useful little tool

Hmmm - what version of Quanta are you using? I'm looking at 3.3.2, and if you look at "Edit>Find in Files (Alt+Ctrl+F)", it brings up a "Search & Replace in Files" dialog box. This apparently only works on local files, but that may be what you're looking for?

vim does multiple files

vim is a vi clone and more. It comes with Mandrake so you can probably get a Mandrake rpm for it. Read the man page for how to open a file list.
