Tabs, commas, spaces in text data files are like grapes on the grocery
store floor. The can be hazardous but, can be avoided. I frequently
look at text as data. I have to deal with 3rd party files all the time.
I try to get them to use a unique delimiter like bar(|) or carat(^). In
my line of business these are rarely used characters.
Good stuff on SED today, thanks.
