All these programming languages got me wondering. Apparently the same
program is implemented in all these languages. But you only need one to
get the desired functionality. Also, I see the sed variant is just a
one-liner. Perhaps it is better if this functionality is merged with a
package like coreutils or recode, if it is not already there someway.
