a screen oriented version of the classic UNIX text editor ed.

se ('Screen Editor') is a screen oriented version of the classic UNIX text editor ed. The editor implements many of the commands of ed, but instead of being line oriented, se is screen oriented. The command syntax should be very familiar to users who already know ed. If you get lost, there is a built-in help system which describes many of the available commands. Many configurable options can be loaded from a .serc file. The editor can be run interactively or in a script via the included scriptse utility. se runs on a variety of platforms including GNU/Linux, GNU/Hurd, BSD systems, Haiku, Cygwin, Minix, OpenIndiana, and others.
