Makes perfect sense. :) I don't know why but reading "do nothing, unsuccessfully." makes me laugh.

@xenaterracide - I think the vim question is a special case of this one, since that one actually has a solution and it seems the general case has none. I'm not sure either though, up to you. :)

@Mikel - Well we'll just have to disagree then. None of the 3 people that answered before you got it wrong (and you could've looked at them for guidance). :) I don't want to use your word usage because I think it makes the question less interesting to read. With the example output I can't possibly see how anyone would get it wrong. Feel free to downvote if you are unhappy with that though. :)

comment What should I use when cut doesn't cut it?
@Mikel - Considering I'm using cut to cut things out and you can see the intent of the failed example I have, it should be fairly clear in the context. I will provide sample out though to clear it up further. :)

I think you need to escape that closing bracket, unless I actually do need to go read up on my regular expressions.
