I have multiple html files. I need to remove the same chunk of code from all of them. I have made a bash loop to feed the files to sed, but am struggling with the sed code.


I need to delete all the code between

<!-- lockon:a:1

and

<!-- lockoff
-->

Including the above comments.

I have tried, played with N, d substitution to // but can't pattern match across multiple lines.

You can handle that sort of thing in perl pretty easily. The syntax is
