I have to admit to little time using the tool. To my admittedly limited 
knowledge, this appears to be a bug:

sed with wildcard matching
I have a DOS file with several record sequences as follows:

1234 Main St

I'm trying to edit the file with the following sed command;

sed -z 's/Online\r\n\(.*\)\r\n\(.*\)/Online\r\n\1 \2/g' test.txt

but there is no change in the stdout stream, much to my surprise.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

I am trying to remove the newline after the 2nd record following "Online", a 
street address.

I have verified the file contents using sed --debug functionality.

I have since solved the problem with an alternate sed programming methodology.

sed --version reports 4.9.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
