Yes sed is different, GNU's sed does accept the -i option, other older versions
of sed (which I have in Solaris) don't.

There are at least 2 options:

- Install GNU sed;
- Change the script from sed to perl.  perl also has a -i option so the
equivalent of what I see above would be:

perl -pi -e "s/\/$//; s/^.*loading d ..."
