The Global Replace plugin allows you to search and replace a pattern
across multiple files. The lines containing a specified pattern in multiple
files are displayed in a buffer. You can edit the lines in this buffer and
make the desired modifications to them. The plugin can then
incorporate these changes back into the corresponding files interactively.
The following commands are provided by this plugin:
:Gsearch Search for a given pattern in the specified group of
files and display the matches in the replace buffer.
:Gbuffersearch Search for a given pattern in all the buffers
in the Vim buffer list.
:Gargsearch Search for a given pattern in all the files in the
Vim argument list.
:Gqfopen Use the results from the quickfix list.
:Greplace Incorporate the modifications from the replace buffer
into the corresponding files.
