4.8. sed

Sed it the streaming editor. It makes it easy for example to replace specially marked texts inside a source code file. The Wireshark build process uses this to stamp version strings into various places.

4.8.1. UNIX or Win32 Cygwin: sed

Sed is available for most of the UNIX-like platforms and as the sed package from the Cygwin setup.

If sed isn't already installed or available as a package for your platform, you can get it at: http://directory.fsf.org/GNU/sed.html

After correct installation, typing at the bash command line prompt:

$ sed --version

should result in something like:

        GNU sed version 4.1.5

A native Win32 sed package can be obtained from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/. The installation should be straightforward.
