In this article, we are going to learn about the usage and functionality of the EditLine plugin written by KVC. This plugin allows you to edit and insert a text line in a file without opening them and overriding the entire content. You can download this plugin from our GitHub. This plugin is an improved and combined version of ReplaceLine/StrSurr utilities. Both of those were created by Kvc as well.



Call EditLine [File] [LineNumber] [Marker 1] [Marker 2] [Text]

ver         :Displays version of program./?          :Displays help for the program.
File        :Name of the text file.
Line number :Line no edit/trim/modify.
Marker 1    :Text from where, to start edit.
Marker 2    :Text from where, to end edit.
Text        :Text to be inserted.

Example: To Edit a line

call EditLine designmap2.xml 2 "product=" ")" "6.0(31)"

The above command will edit the 2nd line from the designmap2.xml file, and replace the text between the markers with the text “6.0(31)”. You can use this utility to edit a line in a file, and also to insert a line.

Input: "<?aid style="50" featureSet="257" product="16.3(24)" ?>"

Output: "<?aid style="50" featureSet="257" product="6.0(31)" ?>"

Example: To Insert a Line

In this example, we will be inserting a line in the file named example.txt. The content of the files is shown in the picture below.

The file to be edited
editline example.txt 1 "editline" "." "A plugin created by KVC"

The above code will insert the line “A plugin created by KVC” between marker1(“editline”) and marker2(“.”) in the manner shown below.
