I'm on a large project where (among other things) I have had to make 2 specific changes to build my program test bed.

main_loop.bat:

Second task was to update a large list of MFDs (6000+) to point from one Data Adapter to another.

Update MFDs:
@ECHO OFF

REM *****************************************************************************
REM * WARNING: THIS SCRIPT WILL UNMERCIFULLY UPDATE FILES.  BE VERY CAREFUL.
REM *****************************************************************************
REM * Read the comments carefully and if you still don't understand look up the 
REM * commands before running.
REM *****************************************************************************
REM * I can't / won't be responsible for negative effects of this script.
REM *****************************************************************************

REM Step 0: read the output of the DIR command dynamically to produce a change list.
for /f %%a in ('dir /b c:\epic_2012\mfds\*.acx') do (

   REM Step 1: Tell the user what's hanppening
   echo Processing c:\epic_2012\mfds\%%a

   REM Step 2: Use SED to edit the file and change CLRTST_2012 to CLRPRD.  Add the CONNECTION flag
   REM to ensure it is only in the scope of the data adapter definition.  Hold the output to a 
   REM temporary directory with the same name.  Copy those files out to WebFOCUS server manually.
   sed "s/CONNECTION=CLRTST_2012/CONNECTION=CLRPRD/g" c:\epic_2012\mfds\%%a > c:\epic_2012\mfds\hstemp\%%a
)



MFD Before:
 SEGNAME=HSACC_CONFIG_BLK, TABLENAME=CLARITY.ACC_CONFIG_BLK, 
   CONNECTION=CLRTST_2012, KEYS=2, $



MFD After:
 SEGNAME=HSACC_CONFIG_BLK, TABLENAME=CLARITY.ACC_CONFIG_BLK, 
   CONNECTION=CLRPRD, KEYS=2, $



You can download a Windows port of SED here (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/sed.htm) and read more about it's capabilities here: http://ss64.com/bash/sed.html
