I wrote my script using the the directory
~/deleted (it's a long script). after using
~/deleted for the whole script. I want to let the user choose the directory by putting the path in
My file starts like this:
#!/bin/bash defaultpath=~/deleted if [ -s ~/.rm.cfg ] then defaultpath=$(head -1 ~/.rm.cfg) fi
I need to replace every
$defaultpath in my script. Is there a way to do it in command line such that it saves and replaces the original file?
I can't get either perl or sed to work.
