I would like to update a large number of C++ source files with an extra include directive before any existing #includes. For this sort of task, I normally use a small bash script with sed to re-write the file.
How do I get
sed to replace just the first occurrence of a string in a file rather than replacing every occurrence?
If I use
sed s/#include/#include "newfile.h"\n#include/
it replaces all #includes.
Alternative suggestions to achieve the same thing are also welcome.
