Quick SED walkthrough by example

## This example is very useful in working with XML files

sed “/group/,/\/group/s/name/groupname/g” directory.xml

## search between the words “group” and “/group” and substitute “name” with “groupname” globally in file “directory.xml”, output to stdout; file not updated

sed -i “/group/,/\/group/s/name/groupname/g” directory.xml
## -i will update the file with the changes
