Find and replace across multiple files

With SSH command line access, you can do the following to edit several individual pages to replace a string of text e.g. update the phone number on the footer of every page on your site.
          * perl -pi -w -e 's/search/replace/g;' *.php
            -e means execute the following line of code.
            -i means edit in-place
            -w write warnings
            -p loop
