5.4. Summary

The sed stream editor is a powerful command line tool, which can handle streams of data: it can take input lines from a pipe. This makes it fit for non-interactive use. The sed editor uses vi-like commands and accepts regular expressions.

The sed tool can read commands from the command line or from a script. It is often used to perform find-and-replace actions on lines containing a pattern.
