 The GNU ed line editor
 **********************
 
 This manual is for GNU ed (version 1.1, 14 October 2008).
 
 
    GNU ed is an 8-bit clean, more or less POSIX-compliant
 implementation of the standard Unix line editor. These days,
 full-screen editors have rendered `ed' mostly of historical interest.
 Nonetheless, it appeals to a handful of aging programmers who still
 believe that "Small is Beautiful".
