facepalm It's not in the man page, but it IS in some online manual I found. Is this normal for regex, because I've never had to use it in regex libraries (in, eg. Python)?

comment What characters do I need to escape when using sed in a sh script?
I want sed to see s/(127\.0\.1\.1)/..., but putting that in a shell script as-is doesn't work. What you're saying about the shell not touching the parentheses seems wrong. I've edited my question to elaborate.

comment When is xargs needed?
Does xargs call the program via the shell with space separated args, or does it actually construct the argument list internally (eg. for use with execv/execp)?
