Learn how to use the unix command 'sed'. A linux forum like

is more appropriate for such general questions.

Subject: [AMBER] How to use perl to replace number to txt?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I was trying to use perl to do amber analysis.  One of my task is to replace the
(number 1 to 100) to a txt (xxx).

I was using the following command line in perl.


However, the program seems to have problem reading [1...100], as it only change
1 to xxx.

I tried to specifiy the 1...100 as follows


However, this time, only 1 to 10 was changed to xxxx.  The 10 was changed to
xxx0, 11, was changed to xxxxxx.  It seems to me that perl read 10 as 1 + 0, 11
as 1 + 0. 

Could you mind to give me a hand how to overcome this problem?  Are there any
easier way of doing this?

Best regards,
