Re: GNU ex (an enhanced version of GNU ed)

I have mostly tracked the patches for ed(1) that come from the BSD's.
I am not aware of any in the GNU/Linux distributions.  It was once
proposed that ed(1) be invoked for the ed mode of nvi(1).  The problem
is in integrating the I/O and buffer handling of two diverse approaches.
As it stands, nvi(1) does a poor job of emulating ed(1).  But, if nvi(1)
could be modified for GNU distribution, that would be my choice.

PS - I think I was converting GNU ed strings to gettext format when I
got diverted...
