Description

Search and replace strings in a file

Usage

1
search.replace(infile, outfile, replacements, overwrite = FALSE)

Arguments

infile

Path to input file

outfile

Path to output file (must be different)

replacements

Named charvec of length 1 (single replacement) or 2 (double replacement)

overwrite

Boolean. If FALSE then outfile must not yet exist. If TRUE and it already exists then it will be overwritten.

Details

This is a very limited interface and only meant for internal use.

It will replace all occurances of a string with another string. It may do 1 or 2 replacements.

The result is written to a second file.

This is done in C++ so very fast (I hope).

Value

Nothing, but might throw an error.
