That's a nifty sed trick, Walter!

There's a bug hiding in it.  It's printing ` in front of everything 

( GRIN -- you'll see it.  You have an extra character in there, unless 
you wanted that ` in front of --. )

Thanks for sharing that one, that one's going in my hints/tricks IMAP 

It will come in handy... I'm sure!
