You can put your sed commands, each on one line, into a file, say,
cases.sed. Then, on the command line, you can invoke:
sed -f cases.sed cases.text > cases.tex
In your SED file you should put the first three line at the end. A
problem are the two lines that convert a series of three accents. When
they come first, then the lines with two accents could convert again
the first conversion. It might be better to use at the SED file's
and at its end
that the occurrences of "```" and "'''" are first saved and then
converted to the proper forms. "•" and "·" are just characters that
don't appear in the original text.
If you have a lot of files to convert you can use the apply command:
apply 'sed -f cases.sed %1 > `basename %1 .txt`.tex' *.txt
In any case, the original files don't get changed, new files are
created with the TeX-ready output.
We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found
ourselves than by those which have occurred to others.
