To All Helpers:

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.

Original Question:

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,
