Yeah, sed ...

No matter how well I think I know sed, it still manages to bite me more often than serve me. Everything I do know about sed, manuals aside, I learned from other programs like ed, vi, and even awk. What I'm getting to is this: my sed-fu is weak, so don't take anything I say about it at face value. Do your own research and learn better for yourself (which you ought to do regardless).

About portability

I'll be using the --posix option with GNU sed...

Changing from openSuSE to LinuxMint Debian

Posted 12-23-2011 at 05:47 PM by Dizzymman

Been using openSuSE for quite a while off and on. Checking out LMDE. Seems pretty speedy, sometimes windows almost seem to jerk open.
