    I am looking to create a simple script that will delete the first and last lines of an ANSI file. Does anyone have any ideas?

    And you need this script to be written in Baja?

    I guess it doesn't really have to be. A simple batch file would probably suffice.

    sed '1d;$d' filename

    Does't work. Is this a UNIX command?

    'sed' traditionally comes with *nixes, but you can also get it for Windows. e.g. http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=9328, unxutils.zip includes a Win32 build of sed.

    It is now moot. I found a VBS that does what I want but it seems like Smegzot has some code that removes the CTRL-L in the file. I will have to put up with that annoying "SmegZOT v1.00 aRf" and "SmegWARE [Registered] in my logon.asc.

    You can get 'sed' for windows. But I suppose, since it's usually a part
    of a base UNIX install, the answer is "yes".

    "SmegWARE [Registered] in my logon.asc.

    So the man from Kamloops is no longer appreciated! Pore ole Darryl.

    Well, maybe you could try

    grep -v "\(SmegZOT\|SmegWARE\)" inputfile > outputfile

    and see if... Oh. Sorry, I forgot.

    i'm thinking you have some bulletin generator and it has 'unregistered' version, or something like that.


    what i would recommend is a text replacement program that you can put in a batchfile.

    i have a great one called 'xchange' if you want it.

    if the file is always the same length, you can use sometihng like 'tail' for your windows OS
