Is sed dead?

Sed is the "stream editor", and while it is truly ancient, it's still something most Unix folk use daily. That's because sed is quick, simple, and efficient. If you learn how to use it, you get a bonus: the same editing commands can be used in ed and vi.

Sed & Awk  
- This is probably the third-most coffee stained, abused, dog-eared and generally old looking book I own. There was a time when I was constantly referring to this, constantly re-reading it. I don't know whether I should call this fortunate or unfortunate, but I don't think I've touched the darn thing at all since I began using Perl. Oh, maybe that isn't 100% true, but it certainly never would have acquired the disheveled appearance it now sports if I had started using Perl earlier. -
