Question Getting sed regex mojo correct.


I am trying to figure out two things:
  1. sed to print all matches on a regex with out edit
  2. sed inline to remove matched edit after review

I have the regex ok. Using egrep in the following gives me all the matches :
for i in $(egrep -rl 'eval\(base64_decode\("CmVyc?.*\)\)\;' ./*|wc -l);do echo "Total infected files is $i";done
Total infected files is 2157
I am just not sure how to take the regex and add in to sed. Can anyone help with this?

Thanks for looking.
