Never mind the emacs vs vi flamewars.  (Of which I use both fluently.)
Real Sysadmins Use ed(1).


Of course, trying to use ed with a list of files is just silly ...

(Actually, knowing how to use ed saved my bacon more than once
on SunOS4 systems where the machine was so hosed that it wouldn't
load vi.)
