Class Method Details

.inreplace(paths, before = nil, after = nil, audit_result = true) ⇒ Object

Sometimes we have to change a bit before we install. Mostly we prefer a patch but if you need the `prefix` of this formula in the patch you have to resort to `inreplace`, because in the patch you don't have access to any var defined by the formula. Only HOMEBREW_PREFIX is available in the embedded patch. inreplace supports regular expressions. <pre>inreplace “somefile.cfg”, /lookwhat?/, “replace by #bin/tool”</pre>
