ed - text editor

Friday, December 5, 1997

Usage: ed [ <file> ]

ed is the original standard text editor for unix. Only the brave use it. Those who choose to use ed often know sed and want interactivity. I have never met someone who knew ed who did not know vi.

eg. ed /u/bmm/.plan

Use man <command> for more info...above is only a brief summary.

Basically, we put a command on the whiteboard nearly every day and sometimes they get copied to the web page...
