I was writing a shell script, editting it in pico, and for some reason
when i tryed to enter a tab into a sed command i was running, it would not
sed '/ /d' <filename>
for some reason whenever I enter a tab between the / / it comes up as
only a few spaces. Now, I'm not sure that the size of the whitespace is
whats wrong, but it doesn't recognize the tab when it searches the file.
I also tryed inserting a tab from pico, ^I, but that didn't work either.
Could it be the editor I'm using or another problem. any suggestion would
I also found that it worked fine with the tab on the command line.
thanks in advance,
