If your word processor has a find and replace option, you can have it
find "Mr. Big" and in the replace field try using a space for the word.
In Windows I was able to do this by holding down the alt key and
pressing 255 on the keypad, this makes an invisible character that takes
the place of the words you want to get rid of, but in Linux those
characters can't be made. Maybe someone else can suggest a way, or you
could edit those text files running Windows.
Well, my situation is bit more complicated. You see, in this folder I
have some 100 .doc files, and about 200 .jpg files. Inside all the doc
files, I have a word "Mr. Big", and then all the files names
(Saturn_Mr.Big.doc), (Venus_Mr.Big.doc), and same goes for .jpgs
So I want to remove not only from documents, but from files names too.
