Single Line Bash Script Split Hack




This post lists a simple sed script that will split a bash script written in a single line.


Note: this script is a hack; it can produce some wrong output. I've posted it because I've found it helpful in splitting apart bash scripts that have been squashed into a single line. Its also written simply so you can change and extend it easily.


The Script

Copy this and save it as sedscript. Call with sed -f sedscript <oneline.sh >multiline.sh
