1.5. FAQ abbreviations

       files = one or more filenames, separated by whitespace
       gsed  = GNU sed
       ssed  = super-sed
       RE    = Regular Expressions supported by sed
       LHS   = the left-hand side ("find" part) of "s/find/repl/" command
       RHS   = the right-hand side ("replace" part) of "s/find/repl/" cmd
       nn+   = version nn or higher (e.g., "15+" = version 1.5 and above)

files: "files" stands for one or more filenames entered on the command line. The names may include any wildcards your shell understands (such as ``zork*'' or ``Aug[4-9].let''). Sed will process each filename passed to it by the shell.
