ABSTRACT

        ALED  is  designed  to edit text files.  Upon invocation, ALED
prompts the user for a file name.  If the file  exists,  its  contents
(lines)  are  read  in  and prepared for editing; if the file does not
exist, the file is created  and  the  empty  buffer  is  prepared  for
editing.    ALED   is  an  interactive  editor,  accepting  singlechar
commands, filling in a command prompt (for more info as  needed),  and
performing  its  functions  in  realtime  while the user watches.  The
functions provided include (but are not limited to) the following:
     * List Lines          * Delete Lines
     * Insert a Group of Lines into the Edit Buffer
     * String Search and String Substitution
     * Movement Within the Edit Buffer
     * Reading in a File After a Specified Line
     * Writing out a Range of Lines to a File
