Error can we optimize this command

can we optimize this command ?

sed 's#AAAA##g' /study/i.txt | sed '1,2d' | tr -d '\n\' > /study/i1.txt;

as here i am using two files ...its overhead..can we optimise to use only 1 file

sed 's#AAAA##g' /study/i.txt | sed '1,2d' | tr -d '\n\' > /study/i.txt;

keeping them same but it doesnt work !!

anyother way so that i can use only 1 file or so ?

If you use the GNU version of sed it has an option for in-place editing.

You can also do what you want to do with sed in one invocation of sed
 sed -e '1,2d' -e 's/AAAA//g'  /study/i.txt

awk 'NR>2{gsub("AAAA","");print}' ORS="" file > newfile

sed -i '1,2d;s/AAAA//g;:a;N;s/\n/ /;ta' infile

{ rm /study/i.txt; sed -e '1,2d' -e 's/AAAA//g'  > /study/i.txt; } < /study/i.txt

I didn't forget the tr command, I replaced it with a sed equivalent (:a;N;s/\n/ /;ta), so that everything could be done with one command.
I used the -i option for inline edit, the various sed operations are separated by a semicolon.
