well befor this goes way out of hand. lets look at the above. Now i would really suggest reading a book or a help document on redirection.

the above commadn works but u want one more thing from it. ok easy.

sed '/green/d' inputfile &gt outputfile; mv outputfile inputfile

all done and you still have only one file.

hi Optimus,
I tried that sed command syntax you have given.. but it gives me error message as

sed: Function pass/d cannot be parsed.

what does it mean actually?

you might have to play w/ the syntax but it works for me. you can also try the orig. syntax posted by perderabo with this small modification.

sed -e /green/d inputfile > outputfile;mv outputfile inputfile
