Thanks for reflecting on ed. It was interesting to hear your 
perspective. I love ed. I was only introduced to it a little over 6 
years or so ago, but it's a beautiful thing. Of course, I use vi as my 
command line editor of choice :), but that doesn't diminish my enjoyment 
of using ed. I'm just way more comfortable in vi/vim. Interestingly, 
when I first learned there was such a thing as ed, I just figured it was 
unix's version of edlin, thankfully this wasn't even close to reality. 
Ed's regex support seems to be very straightforward yet quite powerful, 
and the small command set makes it simple to remember.
