    8 instead of 11 chars (excluding the filename) :^)

    t filename^G32^M^D^S

    T is my editor

    ^G32 := goto line 32

    ^M := return to terminate/execute the goto

    ^D := delete the line

    ^S := Save and exit!

      It's 10 actually, I can leave out a space. sed -e32d filename Also, yours is 12 keystrokes. And once we get to multiple files, yours grows linearly, mine is constant.. :^) for F in *;do sed -e32d "$F";done (NB: a loop is necessary since we'll otherwise only delete the 32nd line of the first file.)

        Also, yours is 12 keystrokes.

        No. <^somechar> is meant to indicate that I need to type control+G. Ie. a single control key.

        Fair play to you on the multiple files though:)

        sed -e32d filename
        And in all of the sed implementations I've seen so far, you can leave out the '-e' since the first argument (when there's no -e) is by default assumed to be the sed script.
