I can use cat to display the content of a file in UNIX V7, but I don't know how can I edit the content of a file.

Is there a built-in file editor in UNIX V7?


The original editors are ed(1) (line-oriented text editor) and sed(1) (stream-oriented text editor). These editors were available from the very beginning.
