MiniSed: stream editor
Sed (streams editor) isn't really a true text editor or text processor. Instead, it is used to filter text, i.e., it takes text input and 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 occurances of a string within a file.
MiniSed is the fast, small sed originally distributed in the GNU toolkit and still distributed with Minix -- but it's still better for some uses (in particular, faster and less memory-intensive).

You can also download the files from the GnuWin32 files page. New releases of the port of this package can be monitored.
The GnuWin32 port of Sed has an additional option -T (--textmode) for input and output in MS-Windows textmode<http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/compile.html#Text_files_and_binary_files>. The default is input and output in binary mode, so that all characters are copied verbatim; this is useful, for example, when editing files with Unicode characters, or with embedded Ctl-Z symbols.
