This example program interprets the arguments as file names and replaces the string "dog" by "cat" in the corresponding files
$ include "seed7_05.s7i";
const proc: main is func
var string: file_name is "";
for file_name range argv(PROGRAM) do
putf(file_name, replace(getf(file_name), "dog", "cat"));
The function getf reads the complete file with the name 'file_name'
into a string and returns it.
Since strings can have any length and can contain any data (even zero bytes) this is possible.
The function replace replaces "dog" by "cat" and after that the function putf writes the
string back to the file with the name 'file_name'.
The functions getf and putf are defined in "getf.s7i".
