Small world. Big idea!
When I working with
sed to write a file script for work.
I get an error when I use
sed -i to replace a word in a script file but I get an error.
I ran the command:
sed -i 's/pattern/replacement/g' file.sh # or sed -i 's/pattern/$replacement/g' file.sh # $replacement is from the environment
An Error occurred:
sed: 1: "file.sh": unterminated substitute in regular expression
sed version was
May 10, 2005 as I saw in
sed there are 2 options that can easily be confused with
-i: This flag tells
sedto edit the file in-place, i.e., modify the file directly.
-e: The -e option in sed is used to specify multiple editing commands or scripts within a single sed invocation. It allows you to apply multiple transformations to the input text.
Download the newest version of GNU sed from here:
