Y'all will have admit that I did say "Subject line is poorly phrased."
Having read the responses, my subject line my not be all that bad.

A better subject/body might have been [How does one edit a piped in stream?] .

Until this thread I didn't have concept of "stream editor", much less the existence of "sed".
I had heard of "AWK", but had an image of it being a regex parser.
