I just added the smiley I should have put in last post.
My example is one I use to remind folks that the '/' is not sacred -- neither in Perl nor in sed. In both cases you can use any character you want: the 1st character after the command letter, usually 's', becomes the delimiter; people typically use '/' out of habit, & possibly because they weren't taught the full capabilities of the programs.
