Just curious, what do I need to do to be able to execute this script like:
$ text-replace old_string new_string
I find it a bit inconvenient having to edit the script for every thing I need to replace.
# Replace old with new inside all text files.

for file in `find . -type f ! -name ".*"`; do
if [ "`file -b "$file" | grep text`" != "" ]; then
sed -i '' "s/old/new/g" "$file"
echo "$file: Done"
