Malwarebytes is no doubt one of the best anti-malware softwares available on the net – I have it as part of my default installation kit when I build/re-build a machine.
One of the annoying things about Malwarebytes though is the fact that they do not offer their definitions files to be downloaded manually.
(Well, technically they do, however this comes as a 6.5MB file which needs to be installed before being able to download the file (disadvantage for those on-the-go)… also, the file is not updated very often – once a week it seems – See here)
Have you ever found your self in a situation where you’ve needed to replace text in multiple files quickly and efficiently?
I came across this conundrum on a monthly basis when I needed to change the contents of tens/hundreds of LoadRunner scripts and parameters to point from the name of the preceding month to the name of the current month.
I did a bit of searching online and found this handy little command line utility called FART – Find and Replace Text. Put simply, it searches a file for X string and replaces it with Y.
