How to search for the last word after last slash "/" and paste it at the first of the string



  • Hi All!

    I want to search for the last word after last “/” and paste it at the first of the string and also add a word like “mv” as below. Can this be done with search and replace using regular expression?

    Thanks in advance.

    Before:
    $AP_TOP/patch/115/sql/AP_Entry_xld.sql

    After:
    mv AP_Entry_xld.sql $AP_TOP/patch/115/sql/



  • Hello @nikhil-chavan and All,

    I think that this regex S/R should do what you expect to !

    • SEARCH (?-s)^(.+/)(.+)

    • REPLACE mv\x20\2\x20\1

    • Tick the Wrap around option, if necessary

    • Select the Regular expression search mode

    • Click, either, on the Replace All or several times on the Replace button

    Best Regards,
