I need to write a scipt that gets:  inFileName outFileName oldStr  newStr

The script should be a simple one that replaces all occurances of oldStr
with newStr  from inFileName, and save it in outFileName

I can do it in the long way or in the shorter (and much simpler ) way.

My questions:

1.  the -i flag saves the output file with the original name
+suffix/prefix.  In this case I need to use a name given by the user.
2.  The oldStr/newStr may contain wierd characters such as */\@  etc.  I do
I prevernt meta characters to affect my perl code ?
