I discovered ed(1) by reading the topic Help with doas.conf OpenBSD 6.5 (thanks!).
Ed Mastery is a very good book to learn ed(1). Lucas explained very well how to use it: command, regex (regular expression), search, substitution, with scripting... step by step new informations are given to mastery ed, like this it is more easy to understand, it is uncomplexity. I know I have to pratice ed. Reading this book was an adventure I enjoy!
Like Ken Thompson said: “I’m glad someone’s finally giving ed the attention it deserves.”
Plus I like his writing style, his humor and his knowledge, I need another Lucas's books now ahah!!!
