Re: Need SED Equiv to this perl command

Hi Rex:

In HP-UX using its standard 'sed' you need a two-step process:

# sed -e 's/"Millard,Public,Schools"/"Millard Public Schools"/g' file > file.new
# mv file.new file

If you were to use GNU 'sed' the '-i' switch for inplace updates is supported and could be added to act like Perl.

In eithere Perl or sed, there is no need to escape the comma character.

Regards!
