remove "\0" charecters

Hi
We have a sed command line to remove “\0” characters from specific file. This command redirects the output to a new different file. Is there a way to open the same file, remove special characters and close it, this avoids creating a new intermediate file for redirection.
Command:
sed 's/\x0//g' /file/SW.dly > /file/SW_N.dly

Regards, BK

If you have gnu sed, then you can use:
Code:
sed -i 's/\x0//g' file

If you have perl, then you can use:
Code:
perl -pi -e 's/\x0//g' file

AT&T UNIX, SCO UnixWare, Sun Microsystems Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX, SGI IRIX and many big corporations who wanted license and profit from their own versions of Unix are not as common today as they were in the 1980s.
True or False?
