       ed - line-oriented text editor


       ed [options] [file]


       GNU ed is a line-oriented text editor. It is used to create, display, modify and otherwise
       manipulate text files, both interactively and via shell scripts. A restricted  version  of
       ed,  red,  can only edit files in the current directory and cannot execute shell commands.
       Ed is the 'standard' text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for Unix, and
       thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors
       such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.

       Start edit by reading in 'file' if given.  If 'file' begins with a  '!',  read  output  of
       shell command.

       Exit  status:  0  for a normal exit, 1 for environmental problems (file not found, invalid
       flags, I/O errors, etc), 2 to indicate a corrupt or invalid input file, 3 for an  internal
       consistency error (eg, bug) which caused ed to panic.
