pyp – A Python Alternative to awk, sed and unix power tools


pyp is a linux command line utility for text manipulation much similar to Python alternatives to awk, sed and other unix power tools. The best is that you can use the unix pipe ‘|’ to and from the pyp command and internally use python syntax. This gives the power of python in shell.
