If you need to find a string recusively in files and replace with another string. Copy the following script into a file called replace.sh and run from a Linux prompt:

/.replace.sh
for file in $(find . -name '*.{FILEEXTENSION}'); do
	sed -e 's/{FIND}/{REPLACE}/' $file > $file.new
	mv $file.new $file
done
