Hello there!

I don't quite get what you mean by replacing text with text,. However, I have a cool and good web here for your reference,

http://www.robthebloke.org/mel/

You can take a look at this website to see if there's any help to your question.


=) all the best.

Is there a reason you need to do this in mel?

Any text editor worth its' salt has a find/replace function. I would do this in a text editor.

If i didnt know that thered be something wrong! lol

Basically im doing it in mel cause im making a GUI that needs to be able to save out its configuration and i was needing to find and replace a chunk of code multiple times in a text file rather than writing put the entire file again.

Broblem solvered now though :) - Im reading the file into a string and gmatch/subtitute'ing the code. Dont know why i didnt think of it b4
