This is an extensible, cross-platform, command line tool written in Python for fast find & replace strings in multiple files at a time.
The strings and their replacement are stored in *.ini files(config files) as pairs.
For the C version of this program checkout branch C.
No standard config is supplied! Please create your own, suitable for your needs.
[section1] foo=bar [sectionName] find=replace
ATTENTION: If replacing special characters the config file's encoding must be the same as the file's in which the replacements are made, else the matching will fail.
Everything is done from a command line.
Download the executables archive, create a new config file and, depending on your OS:
./mr -p path/to/directory_or_file -c path/to/config/default.ini -s section
mr.exe -p path/to/directory_or_file -c path/to/config/default.ini -s section
Or just clone the repo and:
./mr.py -p path/to/directory_or_file -c path/to/config/default.ini -s section
-h, --help display this help information -s ..., --section=... the config section you want to use for replacement -p ..., --path=... the path to the dir or to the file the string should be replaced in -c ..., --config=... the path to the configuration file where the replacement strings should be read -r, --recursive is the path is a directory it will be walked recursively
./mr.py -s ro -p ~/subs -c ~/cfg.ini ./mr.py -s ro -p ~/subs -c ~/cfg.ini -r ./mr.py -s ro -p ~/file.srt -c ~/cfg.ini ./mr.py --section ro --path ~/file.srt --config ~/cfg.ini
multiReplace written in C, now becomes Pythonic multiReplace
Original name: subEDIT Its original purpose was to replace characters in subtitles, now its purpose is generally to replace strings in files.
