be careful with the naming. There is already a function _ReplaceStringInFile(), which is part of the standard UDFs.

Yes, thank you. I just want to share this because I found this incredibly useful, while I was building a website, and had to change 200 files. I do not plan to get this included in any of the standard UDF's.

ah, then you might want to take a look at this as well: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=40542. A simple ReplaceString function would look like this:

#include <File.au3>
Func _ReplaceStrings($filepath,$searchstring,$replacestring)
      _ReplaceStringInFile($filepath,$searchstring,$replacestring)
Endfunc

No error checking done!

Cheers

Kurt
