That's obvious.

The sed expression s(ubstitutes) in a (with grep) given string, that 
starts with %SourceDoc and ends in one or more spaces, that string with 
nothing. So the rest of the line remains in the variable sourcedoc.

For example:

	sourcedoc=`grep ^%SourceDoc "$frontdoc" | sed -e 's/^%SourceDoc *//'`
