Ed is your ready-made editor who edits one line at a time. You need ed when
you have a terminal of a small size and problem happen out of the box.
Ed has three basic commands: s g and p
Ed has two main controls: \ and ^
+1 and -1 will step line by line, printing each line.
And "dot" . will print the active line.
You close ed with q and first write to ed with w

I don't talk much about ed. It is something I learned in college coding at
night. (I was a psych major). Tell me if you want to know more. Ed really
is powerfull and preinstalled in dragonfly.
