I don't see a backslash in the error message, which means something
ate it. Are you running this command from something other than the
commandline or a
plain sh script? If you're calling this from another scripting language
(via system() or popen() or something similar), you probably have to
the backslash so whatever's parsing it out passes one through to sed.
This is being executed from stock tcsh
Progress is being made as it works in the test now with the \\ however
I'm running into more things I don't understand in regards to what I
need to escape in my input string.

I also tried escaping ( ) . / to no avail.
