Unfortunatly, no, we can't. There are sed implementations available for win32, but they're not installed by default. MingW and Cygwin of course ship with sed, but we build libpq with MSVC and Borland as well...

The avaiable options to do it are just horrible. There is edlin, but it
can't be used for anything serious. Or there is the wonderful concept of
writing something in vbscript. But putting vbscript in there doesn't
seem like a very good option.

ActiveState Perl? It's very widely used.
