Numbering lines in a file

25 Oct 2010

Note to brain: line numbering in a file can be done using nl – easier than using sed.

% nl -p -n rz /tmp/foo.txt > /tmp/bar.txt
  • -p Specify that line numbering should not be restarted at logical page delimiters
  • -n format Specify the line numbering output format.
