okay, whatever.

figured I might learn some regex in the process, but I'll just do it the PHP way and be done with it.

Thanks, I suppose.

How about this then...

Can anyone think of a more streamlined version of this (mainly the multiple pipes to sed):

Code:
#!/bin/sh

INPUT=';ApplePasswordServer;0x49e8c2c668dbcb0200004a090000342a,1024 35 142348687369980182134507175767473848406728018835938950439244504199810591467084867869429532763785664902803450035110236201552277202539905523086333992178101548673534094938083763850217881171960226316582341046758647121979394968026644558722582733133246430363127883800192071325741645982074225105651514207812440564579 root@ldap.example.com:123.456.789.111'

OUT1=`echo "$INPUT" | sed 's/ApplePasswordServer/Kerberosv5/' | sed 's/\,/;username@REALM.EXAMPLE.COM;REALM.EXAMPLE.COM;/'`

echo $OUT1

Otherwise, this'll work.

Thanks.

rmvb(9F)						   Kernel Functions for Drivers 						  rmvb(9F)

NAME
rmvb - remove a message block from a message SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/stream.h> mblk_t *rmvb(mblk_t *mp, mblk_t *bp); INTERFACE LEVEL
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI). PARAMETERS
mp Message from which a block is to be removed. mblk_t is an instance of the msgb(9S) structure. bp Message block to be removed. DESCRIPTION
rmvb() removes a message block (bp) from a message (mp), and returns a pointer to the altered message. The message block is not freed, merely removed from the message. It is the module or driver's responsibility to free the message block. RETURN VALUES
If successful, a pointer to the message (minus the removed block) is returned. The pointer is NULL if bp was the only block of the message before rmvb() was called. If the designated message block (bp) does not exist, -1 is returned. CONTEXT
rmvb() can be called from user or interrupt context. EXAMPLES
This routine removes all zero-length M_DATA message blocks from the given message. For each message block in the message, save the next message block (line 10). If the current message block is of type M_DATA and has no data in its buffer (line 11), then remove it from the message (line 12) and free it (line 13). In either case, continue with the next message block in the message (line 16). 1 void 2 xxclean(mp) 3 mblk_t *mp; 4 { 5 mblk_t *tmp; 6 mblk_t *nmp; 7 8 tmp = mp; 9 while (tmp) { 10 nmp = tmp->b_cont; 11 if ((tmp->b_datap->db_type == M_DATA) && (tmp->b_rptr == tmp->b_wptr)) { 12 (void) rmvb(mp, tmp); 13 freeb(tmp); 14 } 15 tmp = nmp; 16 } 17 } SEE ALSO
