  Description     : A quick, light and effective text replacement tool

ReplaceIt was written as a quick, light and effective replacement to the 
combination of sed/awk/grep/head/tail and other such shell utilities, as 
well as being quicker in startup (at least) than an equivilant Perl 

ReplaceIt has various rules which can be used to enhance its abilities 
when negotiating tricky sections of text, whilst searching for the right 
one to replace, these include [ on same line ] string inclusion 
dependence, exclusion dependence, pre-existance, post-existance.

NOTE: ReplaceIt is a line-by-line file parser, so, it cannot (at this 
point) process across multiple \n[\r] terminated lines.
