Thanks Alex,

I will package bypassing this literal name in the test

ASCII 0x2D is a hyphen, but ed doesn't actually escape it (on GNU/Linux either). Commenting out the cleanup code shows that the created file has the literal name "\x2dhyphen\x2dprefixed\x2dfile", which is illegal on Windows (as it contains a backslash).

    Dear Developers,

    testing ed-1.19...
    *** The script /pub/devel/ed/tmp/ed-1.19/testsuite/w.ed exited
    abnormally ***
    tests failed.

    the full content of tmp is

    $ cat /pub/devel/ed/tmp/ed-1.19/tmp/w.log
    \x2dhyphen\x2dprefixed\x2dfile: No such file or directory

    I am not familiar with this escape "\x2dhyphen\x2dprefixed\x2dfile"
    what is the expectation on Unix system ?
