Your memory is fine - TECO used "er" to open the input file and "eb"
to open it read/write. I used TECO for many years, and even wrote my
own implementation in C, and later I was responsible for the DECUS
TECO library, then later still for the de-facto TECO archive, which I
recently put on SourceForge, at
Kinda weird that I started this thread on the TextMate list and ended
up discussing TECO...
