Actually this implementation does not work for me. Not entirely at least.

I do get the output I am looking for with this, ie.:

10 0 8;
10 0 8;
10 0 8;
10 0 7;
10 0 8;

However, it strips either the carriage return or the new line, or both, which I need to retain. For example:


/amstracker -u 0.05 -s | sed 's/$/;/'

gives the output seen above, but if I try running

/amstracker -u 0.05 -s | sed 's/$/;/' | sed 's/$/;/'

Which I should be able to do (it would just add another ';' to each line right?)

In reality I see nothing in the terminal when I run this.

I'm trying to add a newline or carriage return after the ;, but I'm not sure how...

Again, I'm a SED newb.
