sed + path substitution

By default, I am using “/” character in sed substitution scripts. However this may lead to issues with UNIX path substitution.

sed is capable of using any other character within scripts. Instead of using

sed 's/\/sUNIX\/path/\/new\/path/g'

you can use

sed 's|/UNIX/path|/new/path|g'

or you can even use environment variables (remember to replace ‘ with “)
