Ed Mastery book
« on: June 06, 2019, 03:41:42 AM »
Miss the ed editor?  Never tried it?  Too confusing?

I just picked up a modern book on the subject:

Ed Mastery
by
Michael W Lucas

Got my inner Ken (and Dennis) on after reading this book.

So yeah, ed isn't for everybody.  But if you dig cat redirections, herefiles and so forth, this is a nice step up before going to either vi/nano/emacs etc.

The author has his own sense of, um, humor.  Definitely needed for a book on ed. :)

I suppose I should make the request that ed be one of the built in apps for TC's busybox for us cli lovers.

Makes a great holiday gift for the whole family!  Well, maybe one of us weird ones...
