The other day at work I needed to edit 200 files at once. I wanted to do something pretty simple: basically, I had files that looked like this:

In a surprising turn of events, I ended up using the ed editor to do this task, and it was really
easy and simple to do! In this blog post I’ll make the case that if you have something you might
normally accomplish with a Vim macro, you might conceivably want to use Ed for it! On April 1 this year, Michael W Lucas published a new short book
called Ed Mastery . All of that was a cool Unix history lesson, but did not make me want to actually use Ed in real
life. If
you’re interested, I’d really recommend buying Ed Mastery – it’s quite short, I learned some neat Unix
history from it, and now I have a new tool to use very occasionally!
