Earlier this month I made a New Year’s Resolution, that I’m going to learn to use unix a little bit better. Well, so far I’ve made some good progress as in the past week I have been starting to get used to the sed command.
I find it quite handy; how did I ever get along without it? The one thing that’s annoying is that it isn’t pcre-compliant. That would make it a lot easier for me to use. I end up having to string multiple sed commands together in order to get it to work properly.
I understand there is a pcrsed command, but it’s not installed on the machine I use at work where it would be useful to me.
