'z' extension clears pattern space even in the presence of invalid multi-byte
sequences. Bugs in multi-byte processing were fixed. More GNU extensions are now
turned off by the --posix options, including all GNU extensions to regular
Sed, the GNU Stream Editor, copies the named files (standard input default) to
the standard output, edited according to a script of commands.
