I want to replace 0/1 with hetero but whenever I am trying to use the known commands it is showing syntax error because the / is aleady part of the command .. Can anyone suggest a command to solve this issue??

/ is not mandatory in sed command

sed -i -e s:0/1:hetero: file

(-e is not mandatory if there is a single sed command either)


Have you tried this ?

sed -i 's/\/0\/1/hatero/g' <file_name>
