I have a file
template.jou that has the following format:
/codeline1 /codeline2 /var = var /codeline3
Now I want to replace the
var part with different values like
C and then write the contents of
template.jou with the replaced value to a new file.
I tried the following:
sed -n 's/var/A/gpw A.jou' template.jou
But this only printed the pattern matched line (i.e.
/var = A) to the new file
A.jou where I want the full file like this:
/codeline1 /codeline2 /var = A /codeline3
I've also tried:
sed -i '.bak' 's/var/A/g' template.jou
This replaced the template.jou file with new contents, but I want it to change filename as well such that the new file is called
