Search and Replace with multiple-line strings
I'm not a new Linux user, but it's only recently that I've been working on using this OS exclusively. That being said, I'm more familiar with using X as my workplace, but am familiar enough with command line usage to use it if a GUI option isn't available.
Anyway, I run a website and do the vast vast majority of my coding direct, instead of a web editor. In windows, I had a program called ReplaceEm that I could copy and paste a bunch of code and then the stuff I'd like it to be replaced with and it would go through various files, changing every instance of that string. It's really handy.
I checked around the forums and found a number of perl answers to questions fairly similar to that, but they all involved single line replacement, where my applications are more of multi-line instances. Maybe there's just a carriage return text that I don't know that I could use in-line with the perl solutions, but I'm not sure.
Do you know of a multi-line text replacer progam? Preferably GUI, but not entirely necessary.
