Using multiple commands: sed

Hello, SS64 !

I've got a question. If I wanted to operate on the word one for instance I would do a:

Code: Select all

echo one two | sed s/one/1/
Output: 1
The same with two:

Code: Select all

echo one two | sed s/two/2/
Output: 2
But when I try to replace both, I get this:

Code: Select all

echo one two | sed s/one/1/ s/two/2/
Output: couldn't read file s/two/2/
So, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance, shlinuxbash

echo one two | sed -e s/one/1/ -e s/two/2/
