a) GNU sed 2.05 does not come with a man page
There were several revisions of sed 2.05. I have 2.05-6
b) GNU sed takes the options printed with 'sed -h', no more and no less.
There is no -g.
There is no -g, except in the man page. Which is why I raised the point.
sed - the stream editor
sed [-n] [-g] [-e script ] [-f sfile ] [ file ] ...
Sed copies the named files (standard input default) to the
standard output, edited according to a script of commands.
[discussion of -e and -f options omitted]
The -g option causes sed to act as though every substitute
command in the script has a g suffix.
[body of the man page omitted]
This man page was written by Eric S. Raymond
<esr(_at_)snark(_dot_)thyrsus(_dot_)com>, though the sed package
here is from GNU.
