Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

They are css controlled. The nice thing about this is that if you create a userContent.css file for Firefox, then you can override the defaults. All code or pre tags I see, on any website, have the size, color and font I prefer. It makes things much easier on my eyes. See here for more info: http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html
Coluix are you a programmer? I am wondering because I am a sysadmin right now and I honestly don't know half of what you guys know how do you get to the level where you can solve virtually any problem members dish at you? I hope to get senior status one day.
The best way is by doing what you are doing now. Helping other members. I have learned more by helping others and trying to solve their problems while creating my own problems to solve. Also another way is just scan the forums and see what questions where asked and how they were solved. You will never know it all. I have really come to accept that learning + computers = life long journey with plenty of side stops along the way.
Another great sed replacement by pixellany. Pixellany do you make uber dollars? I have been patrolling for all sed tips on this forum and your solving problems on all of them. Are you a programmer? Just curious of what all senior members do for a living? Please give advise if possible and how long you have been working with sed to be able to solve almost any problem.
I make only modest dollars, and not for anything to do with Linux and programming. In fact, I would be a terrible programmer. I am an aerospace systems engineer, with emphasis on camera systems.
I somehow got attached to SED---maybe because I like puzzles. I have only been using SED for 2years, but have been marginally competent for less than a year.
But then, OP has gone missing, so do I really have to work on this??....
Not as far as I'm concerned, but then again I'm happy because I've already solved it for Perl. So, I guess it all depends on how much you want to solve it for sed. It looks like you've already done it...
