If you are planning to do this often you could try something like #! /bin/sh for file do sed "s/$file/fn/" baz.m > bar.m # assumes a single occurance of "fn" matlab nojvm nodisplay < bar.m done
I've written a script which does a somewhat more complicated version of the above method, which I will post if desired.
