When was the last time you used sed and/or awk?

I'm thinking of preparing a lecture, for a High School Computer Club, on the command line tools sed and awk for data manipulation. The discussion will include some examples of using the command to mung a data set. I found the commands valuable over my technology career but wonder how relevant are they today?
