<sigh>  I was just about to post a message re TECO and ya beat me to the
punch!  I first used TECO 20 years ago on a DECSystem-10, and last used
it 12 years ago, on the same DECSystem-10 setup, just prior to it being
replaced by an IBM mainframe.  Don't ask me what that gibberish above
does though - it's been too many years and too many editors since I last
knew what that stuff all meant!
