Just a small thing i forgot. The circumflex in grep command must be
quoted too, as it is interpreted by `sh' under tru64 v5.1 as a pipeline
start. Grrrr ...

address@hidden [~]> man 1p sh

  bar) or, for historical compatibility, by a ^ (circumflex).  In a pipeline,
  the standard output of each command becomes the standard input of the next
