sed code to replace character


This is what i doing to remove ( and )
sed 's/(//'|sed 's/)//'
)

Can you offer me some better sed code that remove ( and ) with blank without using pipe (|) . I mean sed code that check ( or ) and replace that with blank character.

Hi,

both
Code:
sed 's/(\|)//g'
sed 's/[()]//g'
should work equally well.

EDIT:
grail was faster.
I do have a question for the OP, though. You say that you want to replace the braces with a blank character. However, in your example you simply delete them. Please clarify.
