Sammanfattning: Testing Oddmuse.el and updating page
< Hello. My name is Tyler Spivey.
< I am just starting to learn Emacs,
< and currently use Ed.
< I find Ed easier for the simple editing jobs,
< like mapping lines,
< although map-lines.el (recently written) is a good start.
< = Ed versus Emacs =
< global replace: Ed has it:
< ,s/something/something else[/flags...]
< Emacs also has it, I believe.
< search: everything has it.
< character based editing: Emacs only; Ed is a line based editor.
< regions: Sure, both have them, but in different ways.
< Ed has labels (a-z).
< Emacs has one set of 2 labels, mark and point,
< which make up a region. to my knowledge, you can't save labels on a line,
< and do something with it;
< e.g. in Edbrowse, you can mark a directory entry and later do:
< !play 'a
< or something.
< key bindings: Ed uses normal keyboard keys,
< but its commands can be a bit awkward and full of options:
< [address]s<delim>text<delim>other text[<delim>[flags...]]
< Ed has modes, command and insert. no, not like vi,
< you type "." then ret (enter) to get out of the modes.
< you can move forward 9 lines with +9 in command mode,
< but you can also do it in Emacs with c-u 9 c-n - but that is a little hard to type,
< because you can just hit +9 on the keypad,
< or +9+9+9+9 etc. if a file has enough lines,
< you can do a math calculation with + and -, using the =
< (current line) command to get the answer.
< with Edbrowse (a WebBrowser based on Ed)
< you can do:
< where address can be , (globally), x-y (line x to y),
< 'x,'y (label x to label y, lines), etc...
< and uc and lc will uppercase or lowercase that many lines.
< you can do:
< 1,.d (delete from beginning of file to her),
< .m0 (move a line to the beginning of the file),
< .,$d (delete from here to end of file),
< etc, etc, etc...

Hello. I am just getting back into Emacs as of ~September 2008. I have been an ed user for around 10 years, so getting into the Emacs mindset is a bit strange. I am blind, so having good access is important. Ed gives me the access with speech, but doesn’t do so well with braille nor does it have features for selecting and operating on anything more than lines. More to be added later
