@defun ed x?
Invoke an editor on the file or object specified by @var{x}.
@paragraph Synopsis
(ed @var{x?})
@table @var
@item x
@code{nil}, a file path, or an object to edit.
@end table
@paragraph Description
Starts the editor (on a file or an object if named). Functions from the list @var{ext:*ed-functions*} are called in order with @var{x} as an argument until one of them returns non-@code{nil}; these functions are responsible for signalling a @code{file-error} to indicate failure to perform an operation on the file system. If no function returns a non-@code{nil} value or @var{ext:*ed-functions*} is @code{nil} then a @code{simple-error} will be signalled.
The Common Lisp specification states that the @var{x} argument is either @code{nil}, a function name, or an instance of @var{string} or @var{pathname} and that a @var{type-error} may be signalled if is not one of these types. ECL does not check the type of @var{x} and thus permits any object to be passed to the hook functions. This allows for the possibility of editing other objects that have a representation in source code such as class definitions. Therefore, the hook functions should not make any assumptions about the type of @var{x} and should instead return @code{nil} if there is not an approriate edit method for a specific value of @var{x}.
By default @var{ext:*ed-functions*} contains a single function that attempts to run the program named in the environment variable @code{EDITOR}. If this environment variable is not set then the fallback program is @code{vi}.
