> System name: swap
> Type: GNU
> 'swap' is a linux command line utility that simplifies the replacement of
> strings within files. It is a directory tree editor which employs simple
> syntax to do rapid, global modifications on existing files and directories.
> It has currently has two modes of operation, 1) accepting the old-string and
> new-string commands via the command line, or 2) accepting the string
> replacement commands from the default 'swap.cmd' file.
> A simple example of its use is shown:
> swap 'generate_default_code()' 'execute_special_code()' '*.c'
> This replaces every instance of the string 'generate_default_code()' with the
> replacement string 'execute_special_code()'
> in all the 'C' source files in the current working directory.
> For more detailed examples of 'swap' in operation, refer to the embedded
> documentation. Just invoke 'swap' with no arguments, or type 'swap /h' on
> the command line for the expanded help display.
> Other Software Required:
> There are no unusual dependencies. The program compiles with the standard
> GCC compiler. Internally, the program makes system calls to 'find' and
> 'chmod', which are programs anticipated to be available on any *unix system.
