in thread Save all but line 32!

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.)

    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.
      Works indeed. So 8 characters for the sed way.. :-) ++
