Hi everybody,

Actually, i'm working on FreeBSD 6.2 and csh shell. With a sh script, i
trying to execute this command :
sed -e "s/MAKE_ARGS\([^{]*\){/MAKE_ARGS\1{\n\t'mail/nbsmtp' =>
'WITH_IPV6=1 WITH_SSL=1',/" > /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf

The result is not correct, i have an error :
sed: 1: "s/MAKE_ARGS\([^{]*\){/M . . .": bad flag in subsitute command:
'n'

Can you help me please ?

s/MAKE_ARGS\([^{]*\){/MAKE_ARGS\1{\n\t'mail/nbsmtp' =>
This n is invalid--------------------------^^^

You should add a backslash before each slash
that is not used as a separator for the s command.
E.g.
s/I want to substitute the \/ character/with the _ character/
s/\/\/\//three slashes/

You can also use a separator of choice for the s command.
That is:
s/foo/bar/ is equivalent to [EMAIL PROTECTED]@bar@
is equivalent to sAfooAbarA
is equivalent to s1foo1bar1.

keep in mind, that our sed might not be
totally compatible with GNU sed.

HTH, Nikos
Thank for you anserw but the result is bad again :)
I tryed this : sed "s/MAKE_ARGS\([^{]*\){/MAKE_ARGS\1{\n\t'mail\/nbsmtp' => 'WITH_IPV6=1 WITH_SSL=1',/" > /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf
but i have this with cat /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf

MAKE_ARGS = {nt'mail/nbsmtp' => 'WITH_IPV6=1 WITH_SSL=1',
}

Sed and csh is strange no ? I think \n \t not supported by csh.
