Herein lies my updates to the overstrike command from B. W. Kernighan's The Unix Programming Environment with modifications to fix problems after use in production.

Also included here is a script version of rmcr. It is influenced by the Xenix tool of the same name, but was written on the fly (and is preserved as I presented it) for students in Belmont, Washington at the SQLsoft training center, where I was teaching an introductory class on GNU/Linux (RHEL, SUSE, and Ubuntu). It was primarily to demonstrate the correct, or classic Bell Labs', way of exception handling in shell scripting to avoid clobbering the files you're modifying on the stream.
