replace the sequence by something unique first, i.e. a single "\r" (and
revert this change later).
(Replacing a single character is easier using concatMap).
-- | replace first (non-empty) sublist with second one in third
-- argument list
replace :: Eq a => [a] -> [a] -> [a] -> [a]
replace sl r = case sl of
 -> error "replace: empty list"
_ -> concat . unfoldr (\ l -> case l of
 -> Nothing
hd : tl -> Just $ case stripPrefix sl l of
Nothing -> ([hd], tl)
Just rt -> (r, rt))
