 The GNU ed line editor
 This manual is for GNU ed (version 1.9, 18 June 2013).
    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 superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.
