cli-sedHow do I use Azure CLI to modify strings with sed?

The Azure CLI provides a powerful command line interface for managing Azure resources. It can also be used to modify strings with the sed command. sed is a stream editor that can be used to perform basic text transformations on an input stream.

For example, to replace all occurrences of the word "foo" with the word "bar" in a file named "input.txt", the following command can be used:

$ sed -i 's/foo/bar/g' input.txt

The command has the following parts:

  • sed: the command to invoke the stream editor
  • -i: the option to edit the file in place
  • s/foo/bar/g: the substitution command, which replaces all occurrences of "foo" with "bar"
  • input.txt: the file to be modified

For more information, see the sed manual page and the Azure CLI documentation.
