Hi Michael, Do we have to use awk and sed in our assignment? If we have another way of doing that is that okay, or do we specifically need to use awk and sed? Thanks!

Hi, Yes, please. Of course, this assignment could equally have been done in, say Python (and was a few years ago), but that not the point of this unit, which is Shell and open source tool scripting. While basic natural language processing is the motivation for the assignment, the point is for you to experience a somewhat larger build involving the systems we are covering in this unit. Cheers MichaelW

Hi Michael, Yes, I understand that this class and assignment is about the Shell and open source tool scripting and not Python. However, there are other ways of achieving the assignment outcomes (using other systems covered in this unit) without using awk and sed (particularly awk), hence my request for clarification. Thank you for clearing up the need to use these specific commands arbitrarily. Thanks
