@enfors indeed !
Ed is the standard editor :)
@darkstar It is indeed! I have done more programming using ed than I care to admit. I still occasionally use it.
@enfors I have set Ed as my standard editor on w3m and use it to edit and update my wiki, which is based on awkiawki :)
Further for small edits of config files and other text files
Also I use it in scripts, like scripts to alter the Latex output of Pandoc. and s on.
@darkstar You don't use sed instead of ed from scripts?
@enfors In Ed you can find and label a starting line and find and label an ending line and then replace the lines in between. I create a here-document in the same way I would edit the file.
@darkstar Ah, yes I see how that could be useful. Interesting!
