The point of learning ed is to become better in using (g)vi(m). When you know the history (ed>ex>vi) of the command you use, the commands will make more sense.

What's wrong with replying to 4 year old posts?

Well, may be he thought the post was outdated.

By the way, right now, I am learning ed. And, I find great joy in practicing the editor.

I am here actually because of Google. I searched how to activate ed command history (if any of course).

And so far, I get none.

Well, even if there is no command history, at least I have verbose error message (H) and a prompt (P).
