Super sed reads the specified files or the standard input if no files are
specified, makes editing changes according to a list of commands, and
writes the results to the standard output.
Super sed is an enhanced version of GNU sed 3.02. Relative to 3.02, there
are several new features (including in-place editing of files, extended
regular expression syntax and a few new commands) and some bug fixes.

2006-11-07 - Steinar H. Gunderson <>
ssed (3.62-6.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Backport fix from PCRE upstream; in pcre/regexec.c, "start_match" was
never properly initialized. This lead to test suite failures on
mips/mipsel with optimizing builds of this file on gcc4; why it didn't on
any other platforms is a bit of a mystery, but with the fix it compiles
and passes the tests properly. This fixes an unreported FTBFS on
mips/mipsel, and hopefully lets a working version of ssed propagate to
etch, fixing at least one FTBFS there.
