comment Simple sed replacement of tabs mysteriously failing
If I use GNU sed, one \ is enough, as no escaping is necessary. The problem is that BSD sed does not support this syntax for tabs.

I'm on zsh, so maybe it's the zsh history command that does that.

@TomZych: it's really just the last -e expression that's failing. The rest is just for context. Instead of a newline, I'm getting an n as the replacement with the code as shown if I use sed instead of gsed. But I tried lots of different things and none of them worked except using gsed.

comment Is it possible to create and use menus in (terminal-based) vim?
@Alexey: thanks! that's very helpful to know... if I scroll down to section "5.2 Creating New Menus" that looks like it'll do what I want.
