Alright, so I have a file full of thousands of strings. Each one on it's own line. I want to make a script that will allow me to take this file, call it

cheese pizza pepperoni lettuce grahamCrackers 0-0Foods chicken lentils 1-2Items

I would like to accomplish this with BASH, on OS X. Thanks.
Oh, if it helps. Items on each line will NEVER have a space, they will always be contained as one word. E.G. (Never Chicken Soup, instead Chicken-Soup)
