 Very Small Editors

Linux Magazine takes a look at ex, ed, and sed.

"If your terminal or system is corrupted, or if you're trying to edit over a clogged network link, using a line editor can mean the difference between getting your edits done and not. This can be important when, say, you need to edit a system configuration file but you can't run a screen-oriented editor. If you're a system administrator, you should know how to use a line editor!"
