Re: keeping the two latest files on a folder

Hi Guys, that's me again.. I'm stuck again with sed to make a change
to a file.. sorry if it sounds off-topic.. but I need your help :-).

I've just want to change on a file this line:

vif = [ 'ip=167,112,134.223,mac=00:16:3E:FD:58:B8']


vif = ['ip=167,112,134.223,mac=00:16:3E:FD:58:B8,vifname=veth216','ip=,mac=00:16:3E:FD:58:BB,vifname=veth216a']

AND, if it's possible to change tha last two entries of mac address,
B8 to C8 for example..

thanks in advance
