Learn to use and respect ed :-)
That said how about providing a limited termcap for things like vt100,
hp and sun terminals. Did I cover the most popular variants here? vt100
is a subset of vt2xx and 3xx. sun is wierd - maybe a type of ansi and hp
is also wierd - most real HP terminals today can be told to emulate VT.
Besides if one of these doesn't work then you have "ex" which is
significantly better than ed IMHO.
