Nimgrep is a command line tool for search&replace tasks. It can search for regex or peg patterns and can search whole directories at once. User confirmation for every single replace operation can be requested.
Nimgrep has particularly good support for Nim's eccentric style insensitivity. Apart from that it is a generic text manipulation tool.
Compile nimgrep with the command:
nim c -d:release tools/nimgrep.nim
And copy the executable somewhere in your

|--peg||pattern is a peg|
|--re||pattern is a regular expression (default); extended syntax for the regular expression is always turned on|
|--recursive||process directories recursively|

|--word, -w||the match should have word boundaries (buggy for pegs!)|
