Re: tlug: sed ?

I tried that and (as you say) no joy. I tried running gres from
both bash and csh - no joy. Tried changing #!/bin/sh to
#!/bin/csh and got:

if: Expression Syntax.

Tried changing A="'echo | tr '\012' '\001' '" to
A="`echo | tr '\012' '\001'`" with 

sed -e "s^Apattern^Areplacement^A" $file 

and ran it under both bash and csh with and without the magic
shell interpreter thingie- again no joy. (Strange, XFMail is
showing ' and ` as the same?)
