in reply to changing name within a file

If I understood correctly-

perl -pi.bak -e 's# :dir=\.\./(somthing.cpp)# :dir=\.\./mainDir/sudir/$1#' file

If you want to do this as part of a larger script take a look at Tie::File or Editing Files In Place

Update:added :dir=

Update:eeek! I just noticed that this node is awfully like this one have I failed dws's homework appeal?
