There's always something new to learn when working with sed. Although using this beast for quite a while, I just discovered that sed is *really* working line-by-line. That's why things like this
sed 's/\n/ /'
won't work as expected (removing the newlines). Yes, tr could do this:
tr '\n' ' '
...but it's not as flexible as sed(1). So I found this:
...which is working just fine with GNU/sed 4.1.2 but won't work with the version of sed from Solaris10:
sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n//g' Label too long: :a;N;$!ba;s/\n//gWhat now?
