New version 1.19-1 of


is available in the Cygwin distribution:

It is a upstream bugfix release.

GNU ed is a line-oriented text editor. It is used to create, display,
modify and otherwise manipulate text files, both interactively and
via shell scripts. A restricted version of ed, red, can only edit
files in the current directory and cannot execute shell commands.
Ed is the "standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original
editor for Unix, and thus widely available.
