They are different for a reason, I guess: The first one matches lines that only have spaces (it fails spectacularly with lines that have a mix of TAB vs. SPACE characters though, unless you pre-expand TABs). The second one only removes trailing SPACEs from a line. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
