Name

G

Synopsis

[address1[,address2]]G
               

Same as g, except the hold space is pasted below the address instead of overwriting it. The example shows a simple way to cut and paste lines.

Example

This script collects all lines containing the word Item: and moves them after a place marker later in the file. The original Item: lines are deleted.

                  /Item:/{
                  H
                  d
                  }
                  /Summary of items:/G
