Insert and delete lines at the end of a file using sed


Hi guys,

was wondering if this is possible?

I know that deleting of lines can be done... but what about inserting of lines at the end of the file using sed?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You can, using the append (a) command.

Something like the following will place EOF at the end of a file called infile:

sed '$a\
> EOF' infile


The line is split (> being PS2, not a part of the sed command).

Hope this helps.
