The rewrite package

[Tags:bsd3, program]

In the Unix shell there is no easy way to use a filter program to change the contents of a file in-place. For example, if you want to sort a file in place, this will not work:

sort < myfile > myfile

All that will get you is an empty myfile. This package gives you the rewrite program, so this will work:

rewrite myfile sort
