sed -e 's HELP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm attempting to set up hadoop on a few Ubuntu 14.04 computers and, to spare the set up process, the next step is to run

sudo sed -e 's/(.*)/bin/java/1/g'

I've tried a few variations and my returns are either

unrecognized 's' command


unterminated 's' command

obviously I can't just remove the 's'


                   _/ V\
                  / /  /
                <<    |
                ,/    ]
              ,/      ]
            ,/        |
           /    \  \ /
          /      | | |
    ______|   __/_/| |

I'm assuming you mean "/bin/java" 


You have to remember, the slash means something in the sed expression. You likely need to do something special to use it. 


(I'm being ambiguous so you can figure it out your own).
