UNIX user seeks text editor?

» close window

The Question is:

in UNIX there is the SED command (Stream Text Editor).  How can one accomplish
 this in the VMS system?  Is there a comparable method?
Thank you

The Answer is :

  Um, using the available sed text editor?  Versions of vi, emacs,
  sed, and other text editors are all available for OpenVMS.
  For examples of each, look to the Freeware V4.0 distribution, among
  various other archives referenced in the OpenVMS FAQ...
