ed — line-oriented
CURRENTLY UNFINISHED! There are currently some minor noncompliant
parts (namely default addresses for commands), but there is currently no
regexes and no marks implemented. Basically all of the stuff that makes
ed actually useful are totally missing. You can
still try it out I guess though.
ed(1) is the standard UNIX text
editor. While that is used a joke,
legitimately a useful editor in the modern day, particularly when:
- Making a quick edit in a file you're familiar with
- Working over slow connections (low-baud serial, SSH on a shaky hotspot, etc.)
- Programmatically editing files using the same commands you use to edit. Just make one edit manually, put those commands in a script, and run it on the rest of the files without having to convert the actions into a different scripting language like awk
This is a reimplementation that's more compliant with other
ed implementations and the POSIX standard than
of ed, while still having some of GNU
convenience and extensions that are missing from those other
ed implementations. It'll also be implemented more
simply than GNU
ed, and should have more clear and
concise code (hopefully).
- POSIX or POSIX-compatible sh(1), for the configure script.
- Pure POSIX make(1). Most
make's should support the POSIX standard.
- C compiler supporting C11. C99 is also supported as long as stdnoreturn.h and anonymous structs and enums are supported as extensions.
- VT100-compatible terminal, as linenoise(3) currently only supports VT100 termal sequences (only very basic escape sequences required). If you don't know if your terminal supports VT100 escape sequences, then it does.
