        Is there an easier way by sed or ed to remove strings
        (caight by grep) of the sort:

        part5.chapter2.text-

        where "5" and "2" can be any integer below 10?

        (I know how to delete the *entire* line using ed, but not just
        the first part?

$ echo 'part5.chapter2.text-' | tr -d '[0-9]'
part.chapter.text-

$ echo 'part5.chapter2.text-' | sed 's/[0-9]//g'
part.chapter.text-
