GNU ed

https://www.gnu.org/software/ed/
A simple line editor

Ed is a line-oriented text editor: rather than offering an overview of a document, ed performs editing one line at a time. It can be executed both interactively and via shell scripts. Its method of command input allows complex tasks to be performed in an automated way.

GNU ed offers several extensions over the standard utility. The original editor for Unix was the most widely available text editor of its time. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.

N.B. This pacakge also contains a restricted version of ed, red, that can only edit files in the current directory and cannot execute shell commands.
