I am not familiar with stream editor commands, and I am using an existing command. What exactly does this sed command do?

sed '#012/ \n/g'
5

# starts a comment line in sed:

#comment

The comment extends until the next newline (or the end of a -e script fragment).

So, the command shouldn't do anything.
