@darkstar Hi! I noticed in your profile - I'm assuming you're referring to the text 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.

@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!
