      no brother...i also have lines which are like this

      \sys\bin\_aosocketnativenew.pyd"-"!:\private\a000bd8c\

      obviously i cant replace !:\private\a000bd8c\ with c:\resource\ here

      i need this line to be

      \sys\bin\_aosocketnativenew.pyd"-"c:\sys\bin\

      i hope you understand... in this particular example
      _aosocketnativenew.pyd is the constant that i dont want to change
