Global search-and-replace operations are not needed as often in
Emacs as they are in other editors, but they are available. In
addition to the simple `replace-string' command which is like that
found in most editors, there is a `query-replace' command which asks
you, for each occurrence of a pattern, whether to replace it.
The replace commands all replace one string (or regexp) with one
replacement string. It is possible to perform several replacements in
parallel using the command `expand-region-abbrevs'. Note: Expanding
- Unconditional Replace
- Replacing all matches for a string.
- Regexp Replace
- Replacing all matches for a regexp.
- Replacement and Case
- How replacements preserve case of letters.
- Query Replace
