in reply to RegEx Question!

You can also edit "in place" so that it actually looks as deleting the lines you don't want from the original file. Modifying HBM's example, this could look like this:

perl -i.bak -ne 'print unless /dontwant/' my_file.txt

There, unwanted lines will be removed from my_file.txt and the original version of the file will be saved with the .bak extension added.
