|Help with Perl Script|
Advanced Find/Replace CGI Application
| 2:39 am on Jan 12, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Does anyone have quick pointers on how to write a small Perl script to run on a linux server that'll address some advanced find & replace functions inside document(s) source code?
Here is what I'm trying to do. We'll call the Perl cgi script "engine" in this explanation.
If engine finds a file name ending in *.asp (inside the HTML source code, of course), the engine will rewrite it as *.aspex.
In addition, when engine finds a file name ending in *.asp, it will also adding a predefined line of code ("/newdir/") inside the HTML source code, provided they're all inside an anchor.
Another way to visualize the concept:
<a href="/newdir/index.aspex">Dir Link</a>
Thanks in advance!

Look into regular expressions, you'll find endless info if you do a search.

perl -p -i.bak -e 's/(href=\")(.*?asp)\"/$1\/newdir$2ex\"/g' *.asp
Then rename the files yourself (assuming you're using Windows, I think ren *.asp *.aspex will do it.
