This listing of Ed commands comes from a pre-published release of
Bantam Books' "AmigaDOS User's Manual".  I don't know when the official
publication is but it's in a series of three VERY worthwhile books.

"AmigaDOS User's Manual" - Covers All DOS commands, along with ED and EDIT

"AmigaDOS Technical Reference Manual" - Everything you ever wanted to 
                                        know about the Filing System,
                                        Binary File Structure, AmigaDOS
                                        Data structure, and DISKED.

"AmigaDOS Developer's Manual" - How to call DOS commands from "c",
                                The macro assembler, and ALINK
                                The linker.
