I'm converting Windows batch script .bat to Linux batch script .sh

What takes time a lot is to change the way .bat script use variables.


In Windows

@set varName=122
echo %varName%

In Linux

echo $varName

So the question is, how to replace %.+% to $.+ ?

In the Replace dialog (Ctrl+H), use the following:

Find what: %(.+)%
Replace with: $\1
Search Mode: Regular expression
