POSIX incompatibiltiies 

technically s with no match is an error, but no ed implementation does it like that within g. you could probably hack together a "fail line" at the end of your file that is guaranteed to have all of the substitutions you want to make on it and then discarded after.

Q

ed(1)posting 

if your favorite part of vim is spending months trying to become efficient at using its many operations instead of just rewriting the text, BOY do i have a text editor for you

are there scripts that can't reasonably be written in a monospace terminal? like just wide characters aren't enough, since double-wide characters can align that way, and text with complex shaping or hinting is still possible if it's rendered all at once i think.

i suppose any vertical script, for one..

i need to find more people on here that are interested in the same things so i can ask my weird eternal questions and get actual answers

"Non Goals"

"right-to-left text"
