You put this in Python or R. Most likely though using sed would be among the fastest. The find and replace syntax is spelled out here.

sed -i -e 's/abc/XYZ/g' file.txt

Though recently I saw a recommendation for sd for the find and replace aspect. (sed can do more than just that.) I haven't checked out sd myself yet. It has examples there.
