[HDGEM] When facing replacement of text in a large number of files, sed is a great help.

What distinguishes sed from other editors, such as vi and ed, is its ability to filter text that it gets from a pipeline feed. 

You do not need to interact with the editor while it is running; that is why sed is sometimes called a batch editor. This feature allows use of editing commands in scripts, greatly easing repetitive editing tasks.
