sed: 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.
Version 1.4 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).

If you download the Setup program of the package, any requirements for running applications, such as dynamic link libraries (DLL's) from the dependencies as listed below under Requirements, are already included. If you download the package as Zip files, then you must download and install the dependencies zip file yourself. Developer files (header files and libraries) from other packages are however not included; so if you wish to develop your own applications, you must separately install the required packages.

The GnuWin port of Sed has an additional option -b (--binary) for input and output in MS-Windows binary mode<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.
