Sed Command Issue

Hello,

I want to remove the / found when executing the date command. When I use:
Code:
date +%D | sed 's/\///'

I get:
Code:
1105/09

I tried:
Code:
date +%D | sed 's/\*$///'

I need to remove all / from the date command, but it does not seem to work

Scott's answer,
Code:
date +%D | sed 's/\///g'

is perfectly correct, but not as readable as
Code:
date +%D| sed 's-/--g

But why can't you just use
Code:
date +%m%d%y

?

See the following example code.
Code:
date +"%d/%m/%Y" | sed -e s%/%-%g

Code:
date +"%d/%m/%Y" | sed -e s#/#-#g

Code:
date +"%d/%m/%Y" | sed -e s@/@-@g


Output:

With out escaping the '/' you can achieve this by tr.Then why you preferred sed.

Code:
date +%D | tr "/" '\0'

Code:
 date +%m%d%y

gives the identical results as
Code:
date+%D | sed 's/\///g'
