Hi

I have a file which has a line as below:

DirIcons="/images"


I need to convert the above line to

DirIcons="/test"

How do I do it with awk from command prompt ?

Thanks a lot

Just one line??---Use an editor.
OR:
sed -i 's:/images:/test/:' filename
(changes all cases of "/images" to "/test")

For really good sed and awk tutorials, search Google using "grymoire sed" and "grymoire awk"
