My ed suggestion wasn't a joke. It's probably the smallest editor to
install. It has a long pedigree, it's in POSIX, and many know parts of
it simply through knowing sed or vi. I use it every day for quick small
edits, especially when the context of what I want to do is on the screen
and would be lost by starting a full-screen editor.

Few know the non-Unix Wordstar now.
