Learning to speak a little TECO can be really useful to edit files on old DEC and related systems.
|1.|| ||Open file for input and read||9.|| ||Jump to beginning of file|
|2.|| ||Open file for output||10.|| ||Jump to end of file|
|3.|| ||Save and exit||11.|| ||Type from pointer to end of line|
|4.|| ||Exit (no save)||12.|| ||Type current line|
|5.|| ||Move character forward||13.|| ||Delete character at pointer|
|6.|| ||Move character backward||14.|| ||Delete current line|
|7.|| ||Move to beginning of next line||15.|| ||Search for text|
|8.|| ||Insert text||16.|| ||Substitute text2 for text1|
EW… unnecessary. Some versions of TECO have a command
Ythat does the same as
EW… in one step.
D): move/delete multiple characters (negative reverses direction)
K): move/type/delete multiple lines (negative reverses direction); (
H: type/delete whole file
