How can I do that in bash or perl, that I have a txt file, e.g.:
Hi, this is the content of the txt file, that contains links like this:
http://www.somewhere.it/, and it could contain: http://somewhere.com,
This is the second line, that doesn't contains links..
This is the XYZ line, that contains a link: http://www.somewhere.net
...ok.. so how could I make a regexp for this?
The solution would be:
sed 'SOMEMAGIC' file.txt > file.html
perl 'SOMEBIGMAGIC' file.txt > file.html
