Well, I am not entirely sure what fixed it but it is working now.

Last time I booted to Linux, I reinstalled a bunch of python stuff using Synaptic. But the script still wasn't working though. So I booted back to Win to get some work done, and Just now I booted back to Linux and deleted some of the old script files and replaced them with new ones, and tried running them again from terminal and they worked not a big shock that the command line one worked (since I had it working before), but the new one that just prints the output also ran fine (it didn't before). So I fired up Axis and all was good.

I wish I knew what the real problem was. I don't think it was recopying the scripts since I thought I tried that last time. I'll go give it a try on another computer who's Linux install hasn't been futzed with quit so much and see what happens.

I am guessing it was something I installed or reinstalled combined with the reboot that got it working.

I already use notepad++ for all my editing in Windows.

Would it be possible to use the sed line with some other stuff to add a pre and postamble as well.

You can use echo to print lines of text, and cat to display contents from other files:
#!/bin/bash

echo "This line ends up before the output"
# Empty line:
echo

# The main part
sed 's|Z\([-.0-9]*\)|Z\1 W\1|g' "$1"

# Post-amble from file post.txt:
cat post.txt

Don't know if that is what you're after? Anyway, the python script seems to work now, so perhaps this is moot.
