I heard Linus briefly mention it on the Wan show and he was pretty upset that it was never released even though it was the best thing ever.

sed (stream editor) isn't an interactive text editor. Instead, it is used to filter text, i.e., it takes text input, performs some operation (or set of operations) on it, and outputs the modified text. sed is typically used for extracting part of a file using pattern matching or substituting multiple occurrences of a string within a file.
