Really good editor for Unix

don't be so self deprecating!
Maybe the about section shouldn't be so self deprecating.

There are many good reasons still to have a decent line editor available on all systems. Some of those could be described instead of worrying about the other tools that don't really compare.

Both errors will be fixed in version 0.6.

Next time, please use the mailing list to notify errors. Thanks.

errors in ed-0.4
I'm sure Antonio Diaz means well, but there are a couple of glaring errors in signal.c:

In sigwinch_handler(), there is an executable statement before a declaration (when TIOCGWINSZ is defined). That works in C++, but not in C.

In set_signal(), the non-standard flag SA_RESTART is used. This should be conditionalized, as it is not supported on all flavours of Unix (including QNX Neutrino); POSIX does not in fact require it to be defined.
