To All Helpers:
Thanks to all the following replies. I got a lot of leads. Although I
have not got the chance to try them out.
Try http://www.filedudes.com, I think there's a freeware utility that
gives you UNIX utilities that run under Windows 95/98/NT (including in
the DOS prompt).
If you can't find anything, email me and I'll put up the distribution
on our anonymous ftp site for you. I've lost track of where I got it.
Way off topic. Try www.delorie.com.
This utility, strep, might be useful for your needs, here's the short
documentation file for it. I have used it successfully to edit large
numbers of ascii files, like html, for search/replace, and it works like
a charm. Good luck, -Don

I think you can find something about this in the sed FAQ at
A place to start looking is
try this location:

"GNU sed has been ported to DOS. There are files on the main GNU
distribution site (ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu) with pointers to DOS
versions of these programs.
egrep, sed & awk are available for MS-DOS based machines as part
of the MKS Toolkit (www.mks.com)."

Hello to All Helpers:
I am looking for a freeware version of sed program to run under DOS so I
can use search/replace feature to manipulate autoexec.bat file under DOS
with script. Could any one point me to the right direction for this?
Thanks in advance,
