Sigh. Thank you. That works. However, it also deletes any line that
has even one NUL in it regardless of the presence of other non-nul
characters on the line.
What I wish to accomplish is to delete only the lines that are
completely nul. I thought that this could be accomplished by
prefacing the match sting with the start of line anchor ^ and ending
it with the end of line anchor $ but this does not work as I expect.
