Removing newlines (n) with sed

Today I had to search again on how to remove newline special characters with sed. Thanks to Kamil over at, I found it again rather quickly.

Now, this is just for my own safekeeping, so I don’t end up googling for it again … *shrug*

  1. That’s so ugly though, isn’t it! When I realised it would look like that, I ran looking for another solution. I found one.

    echo -e “Line containing nnewlines!” | tr -d “n”
