If you are a vi fan, what do you have against ed? ed is just vi without 
the visual (or vi is just ed with a visual)


sample ed session (only keystrokes):

ed /foo/bar
/mykeywork    # will find that stuff
s/foo/bar/g   # replacement, just like vi
a             # add lines
my line
other line
ctrl-d        # finish adding
p             # print current line
d             # delete current line
w             # write
q             # quit
