reads line oriented output from

or stdin, applies the editing commands supplied by
.Ar script
.Ar scriptfile
and writes the edited stream to stdout.
.Bl -tag -width Ds

Suppress default printing at the end of each cycle.
.It Fl r E
Use extended regular expressions
.It Fl e Ar script
.Ar script
to the list of editing commands.
.It Fl f Ar scriptfile
Append the commands from
.Ar scriptfile
to the list of editing commands.
Editing commands take the form
.Ss Addresses
Addresses are either blank, a positive decimal integer denoting a line
number, the character '$' denoting the last line of input, or a regular
expression. A command with no addresses matches every line, one address
matches individual lines, and two addresses matches a range of lines
from the first to the second address inclusive.
.Ss Functions
.Bl -tag -width Ds
.It Ar a Op Ar text
Append text to output after end of current cycle.
.It Ar b Op Ar label
Branch to label. If no label is provided branch to end of script.
.It Ar c Op Ar text
Change. Delete addressed range and output text after end of current cycle.
.It Ar d
Delete pattern space and begin next cycle.
.It Ar D
Delete pattern space up to and including first newline and begin new
cycle without reading input. If there is no newline, behave like d.
.It Ar g
Get. Replace the pattern space with the hold space.
.It Ar G
Get. Append a newline and the hold space to the pattern space.
.It Ar h
Hold. Replace the hold space with the pattern space.
.It Ar H
Hold. Append a newline and the pattern space to the hold space.
.It Ar i Op Ar text
Insert text in output.
.It Ar l
List? Write the pattern space replacing known non printing characters with
backslash escaped versions (\\\\, \\a, \\b, \\f, \\r, \\t, \\v). Print
bad UTF-8 sequences as \\ooo where ooo is a three digit octal number. Mark
end of lines with '$'.
.It Ar n
Next. Write pattern space (unless
.Fl n ) ,
read next line into pattern space, and continue current cycle. If there
is no next line, quit.
.It Ar N
Next. Read next line, append newline and next line to pattern space,
and continue cycle. If there is no next line, quit without printing
current pattern space.
.It Ar p
Print current pattern space.
.It Ar P
Print current pattern space up to first newline.
.It Ar q
.It Ar r file
Read file and write contents to output.
.It Ar s/re/text/flags
Find occurences of regular expression re in the pattern space and replace
with text. A '&' in text is replaced with the entire match. A \\d where
d is a decimal digit 1-9 is replaced with the corresponding match group
from the regular expression. \\n represents a newline in both the regular
expression and replacement text. A literal newline in the replacement
text must be preceded by a \\.
Flags are
.Bl -tag -width Ds
.It Ar n
A positive decimal number denoting which match in the pattern space
to replace.
.It Ar g
Global. Replace all matches in the pattern space.
.It Ar p
Print the pattern if a replacement was made.
.It Ar w file
Write the pattern space to file if a replacement was made.
.It Ar t Op Ar label
Test. Branch to corresponding labelif a substitution has been made since
the last line was read or last t command was executed. If no label is
provided branch to end of script.
.It Ar w file
Write pattern space to file.
.It Ar x
Exchange hold space and pattern space.
.It Ar y/set1/set2/
Replace each occurrence of a character from set 1 with the corresponding
character from set 2.
.It Ar :label
Create a label for b and t commands.
.It Ar =
Write current input line number to output.
