hi folks 
I m not a unix crack  and I just cant figure out why it doesnt work..
here is what I need todo.

a - search a pattern (say "blank") within files located in this folder and below.
b - replace the pattern found (if there is any) with a new text say "blank extended" (this extension should be put into the file as parameter - so I can adjust the new string as I need it.
c - replace the old file with the file holding the new changes.

doesnt that sound pretty easy to u folks ?
its not for me ;(
