Yes I agree. Thanks for pointing that out.
Is there an easier way calling sed without having to do all that quoting
calling sed a second time to make sure sed (the first) doesn't barf?
How about a different tool? Perhaps
| (m4 -DSUBJECT="$MATCH" $PROCDIR/procmail_vacationmsg; \
sed 's/^/> /')
which doesn't work because m4 leaves the dollar sign behind. Personally
I don't like to use SUBJECT instead of $SUBJECT in the reply-template.
Whether one uses awk or sed for the quoting of the original msg would
be irrelevant, or?
I am forming the opinion that the only way to do with just 1 external
invocation would be to use nawk or gawk, and their gsub().
