sshdel delete ssh key by line number

I find this really useful, just a call out to sed so I don't have to remember the syntax.

ssh_delete_key() {
  sed -i -e ${1}d ~/.ssh/known_hosts
}
alias sshdel=ssh_delete_key

Usage:

[thomas@laptop: ~] $ ssh 192.168.0.1
OpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 2011
