Why use sed when Ruby already has regex? I’d certainly just take
the output of gunzip and process it in Ruby rather than with
another process (sed).

As I said, I prefer ksh to almost everything… and am quite comfortable with it. I need more experience with Ruby yet.

Why use gunzip when Ruby has Ruby/zlib?

Didn’t know about it - besides:

ruby -v

ruby 1.4.3 (1999-12-08) [hppa2.0n-hpux11.00]

Does it work with 1.4.3?
