This little thing provides multi-line replacements in text files. Also, it provides in-memory replacements, on a list of strings.

Although there are tons of similar utilities, maybe this one has its own goods.

It would be useful when you need:

  1. replace periodically some bunches of strings in some texts;
  2. modify a snapshot of some software without its cloning/forking;
  3. share your little modifications with your colleagues, without resorting to those great GIT, MERCURIAL, FOSSIL etc.;
  4. customize files generated by document generators;
  5. prepare a Tcl source file to be processed by freewrap;
  6. perform in-memory multi-line replacements in Tcl scripts.
