in reply to Re^2: sed (was: Save all but line 32!)
in thread Save all but line 32!

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!

Re^4: sed

    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.)

    Makeshifts last the longest.

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