Hi all, I am new to cfengine and thus, this may be a really dumb
question. However, I went through the docs and I could not find the
solution, honestly.

I am trying to use editfiles/ReplaceAll and backreference into the
search pattern, conceptually like so:

  ReplaceAll "foo(.*)bar" With "bar$1foo"

However, the $1 is replaced literally. Is there a way to do what
I want/need?

Thanks,
