sed end of line




Hello, I have a problem with sed.

Ubuntu:
timo@serv6:~# echo "CHANGE MASTER;" | sed '/^CHANGE MASTER.*/ s/.$/ for channel "de";/'
CHANGE MASTER for channel "de";

Works as expected.

Windows:
C:\> echo CHANGE MASTER;| sed.exe '/^CHANGE MASTER.*/ s/.$/ for channel "de";/'
CHANGE MASTER; for channel "de";

last character ";" is not being deleted

now with a second "." before "$" (to delete last 2 characters):
C:\> echo CHANGE MASTER;| sed.exe '/^CHANGE MASTER.*/ s/..$/ for channel "de";/'
CHANGE MASTER for channel "de";

This is how I want it.

Why do I need a second "." in the cygwin sed?

sed.exe --version
/usr/bin/sed (GNU sed) 4.4
Packaged by Cygwin (4.4-1)
