I'm using this sed command to delete the word --More-- :

sed 's/--More--\s*/ /' tabladetallada.dat

the original file looks like this:

Once the word is deleted the white spaces after it are still there How can I delete them?

  • Cesar why are you asking the same question twice? – roaima Mar 1 '17 at 17:09

The substitution should look like

s/--More-- */ /

or

s/--More--[[:blank:]]*/ /

sed does not know about \s for "space" but treats it as a literal s.

␣* (space + *) will match zero or more spaces.

[[:blank:]]* will match zero or more spaces or tabs.

You can use sed as follow:

sed 's/--More--[[:space:]]//g' file
