Creating a sed-based file substitution tool.
A few weeks ago, I was digging through my spam folder and found an email message that started out like this:
Dear #name# Congratulations on winning the $15.7 million lottery payout! To learn how to claim your winnings, please...
Obviously, it was a scam (does anyone actually fall for these?), but what captured my
attention was the
#name# sequence. Clearly that was a fail on the part of the sender who
presumably didn't know how to use AnnoyingSpamTool 1.3 or whatever the heck
he or she was using.
