So I need to convert the INPUT to OUTPUT, the difference is that OUTPUT is "clickable" because this is in a HTML file.
Q: How can I do this with awk, sed or perl?
I know I can do a "read line by line", but what is the most resource efficient way to do this? (I only need 1 solution, not for all sed/awk/etc.)
: is the delimiter.
