SED (Stream EDitor) — streaming text editor and programming language.
An excellent tool to convert outgoing text data in any convenient form.
For example, several times wrote a table of online mac-addresses, which were taken from the switch, were checked with billing and were output with such data as address, ID, login, etc ..
For example, a script that receives SNMP macros from the L3 of the HP 5800 switch and saves them in a text document in a column, thanks to the SED, unnecessary data is deleted, and spaces are replaced with a colon:
#!/bin/bash rm /var/www/mac.txt snmpwalk -v 2c -c community 192.168.1.50 .18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.3 -O v|sed -e "s/.*Hex-STRING: //g" -e "s/ /:/g" -e "s/.$//" -e "/INTEGER/d" > /var/www/mac.txt
Here are a few more examples of using SED.
Output only values after Hex-STRING:
sed -e 's/.*Hex-STRING: //g'
Colon whitespace replacement:
sed -e 's/ /:/g'
Delete the last line:
sed -e sed 's/.$//'
Delete the last character:
sed -e 's/.$//'
Removing a string containing INTEGER:
sed -e '/INTEGER/d'
Removing lines in file.txt where ABCD occurs:
sed -i '/^ABCD/ d' file.txt
Example of deleting the third line in the file file.txt and deleting 4 lines starting from line 7:
sed -i '3,1d' file.txt sed -i '7,4d' file.txt
Enumerate the lines in file.txt:
sed = file.txt | sed 'N;s/\n/\t/'
Outputting only rows from 5-10:
sed -n 5,10p file.txt
The built-in help can be obtained by the command:
