Fine. Actually I'm using a version of zopesh implemented by me
with such commands and I find those very useful.
IMHO this is the very powerful of a shell.
The other day I needed to change the words:
<dtml-in "qry.provincie()">
<dtml-in "mtd.provincie(reg='ER')">
in a great number of documents
using sed 's/<dtml-in "qry.provincie()">/<dtml-in
"mtd.provincie(reg='ER')">/g' *
I did this job in a while.
Imagine you what hard work searching and changing it by hand.
