remove /n using sed

Hi,

I have a text file like below,

team alpha 400
team bet/na 800
team ga/nmma 900
team omega 1100

I need to remove /n from above text using sed. I want the new lines to be preserved though.. (after the numbers). Can someone help..

If you do not alter the separator you use in sed as the example medvedd provided, you have to escape the '/' in '/n' which is done using the '\'
sed -e 's/\/n//' <filein >fileout

The separator can be almost any character as long as you use single quotes(') to enclose the pattern double quotes (") will have the shell process the contents and replace characters that have meaning $,!,etc.. (hedging since I have not tried all options)
