Sed Cheatsheet

Just a post about some of the sed lines I find scattered, to be extend in future edits.

Indent all but first line

$ <command> | sed '1{p;d}; s/^/  /'

1 applies to first line only, p prints and d deletes so there is no continuation to the second expression in which s searches for ^ start of line to replace it with two spaces. ; separates expressions, { and } group them.

switch -e has been left out.

Similar to

$ <command> | sed '1p; 1d; s/^/  /'
