text substitution


I have a text file  with many occurances of the following text:

dev/group

I want to replace the (above) text with the following:

$ dev/group

But, I am having trouble when I use this code:

s/dev/group/$ dev/group

due to use of $ and /

Any tips on how I can do the replacement?

Thanks

P

     s|(dev/group)|\$ $1|g;

Put a backslash in front of the meta characters that you
want to be literal:

   s/dev\/group/\$ dev\/group/;

or use single quote as the delimiter:

   s'dev/group'$ dev/group';
