simple replacements

The goal is to see the replacement commands in action.

Start file
The sublime users worked on projects more closed to my own project so I started to
check how they did things and then I started learning about emacs. It was not
cool, it was too hard to learn how to use it, to load new config files I had to
restart emacs every time and so much other problems, but since they did,
I convinced myself that I could learn it too so I did.

I used emacs for a few months and what I like about emacs the most is that it's
optimized for editing files not creating new ones. For the most of the time,
we're editing files and moving between lines of code so that makes sense.
Finally I was happy and productive using emacs.
