Dos - Hi,

I want to open a file want to replace a line in the file with a diffrent line, but i dont want to search with full line in the file instead i will give only
a part of the line and the program should replace the whole line with given line.

For Example:- In makfi.txt file i have a line like this --the current user logged in is ruddet--, now i want to use only "the current user logged" word from
this line for my search and i want replace the whole line with a diffrent line.

I have writen below program for my requirement, but it is replacing only a signle word, When i tried with line it not working.

Could some one please help.

@echo off
for /f %%a in (makfi.txt) do (
set foo=%%a
if !foo!==ex3 set foo=ex5
echo !foo! >> text.file)
