I may be wrong, but I don't think revolution does that, but you can do it


put "text to replace" into old

put myData into myTempData
replace old with return&old&return in myTempData
filter myTempData with old

put the number of lines in myTempData into instancesBeingReplaced

replace old with "new" in myData
