Once I've got the results, it would be wonderful if I could edit (similar to string-replace) the results and have it work across the buffers that contain the results.
I can see how this would be useful.
However I am wary implementing it in full-ack. It seems too arbitrary where the replacement would take place. (Just open buffers? What happens with matches already modified?)
It seems to me that this would be better implemented in ack itself. (full-ack could then add a one-button activator.)
I'll ping the creator and see what he thinks.
Creator says this feature is outside the scope of ack (and unix philosophy).
Looks like occur is getting this feature though. Would be cool to keep feature parity. :)
It's now possible with emacs wgrep mode
