I need to search a file for text “InstallDir=” + newline character and
replace it with something like: InstallDir=C:\mws71 + newline
My own experimentation with this had problems with writing the back-
slashes to the file (it’s a requirement of the format to have the back-
slashes as in my example). The string had the back-slashes in it but
they didn’t get persisted to the file correctly.
Are there any libraries that perform a search and replace?
