I don't get this. Isn't "cat" reading from stdin in this example? "cat"
with a command-line argument refers to a file. So why is it stdin for "cat"
and not for "ed"?
By the way, when I execute your command, I get:
[dan at scandium dan]$ (cat <<EOF;) | ed index.php
So it looks like it understands the "w" command (hence the second 8090),
but not the substitution command. But that's progress relative to where I was.
