Everything is fine such that unrecoverablen (n is getting printed)

How do I use 1i UNRECOVERABLE as u said instead of \n

Ur program:

for FILE in `ls -1 *.test`


  mv ${FILE} ${FILE}.bkp_`date +%Y%m%d`;

  cat ${FILE}.bkp_`date +%Y%m%d` | \

   sed -e "s/^load\ data/unrecoverable\nload\ data/g" \

       -e "s/^infile\ '/infile\ '\/DDUMPS\/sybase_dump\/out\/DATACITI_MASTER\/Oracle\//g" \

       -e "s/^into\ table/append\ into\ table/g" > ${FILE}; done

Other prog:



for b in $(ls -1 $BASE)


sed -e '1i UNRECOVERABLE' -e "s/^infile '/infile '\/DDUMPS\/sybase_dump\/out\/DATACITI_MASTER\/Oracle\//g" \

-e "s/^into/append into/g" $BASE/$b >$BASE/$; done

Thanks & Regards

Hmm. It depends on the sed-version, it seems. It works fine on the

linux-boxes I have tried, but apparently not in your version of sed.

Waldirio suggested using


to insert UNRECOVERABLE at line 1, maybe that works better in your
