Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 4 June 2008I don't know without seeing your sed statement, which I'm guessing is in shell not in Tcl (even though this is the Tcl forum?)
Wild guess - the space is delimiting shell parameters - place the whole of your sed edit instruction into quotes. So not
sed s/x/ /g abc.txt
sed 's/x/ /g' abc.txt
