Hi,

I inherited a website (~ 40 files) that used registered globals ...
according to PHP, registered globals should be avoided because they are
a security risk.

I looked for a way to search and replace across multiple files in this
project... and did not find one. Eventually, I went out to the OS
(Ubuntu linux) and got it done with grep and sed. Is there a way to do
this from within eclipse?

Thanks
R

Select the project or projects you want to massage and hit CTRL-H to do
global multi-file find & replace.
