Introduction to Ed

Ed is a line-oriented text editor. It is used to create, display, modify and otherwise manipulate text files, both interactively and via shell scripts. A restricted version of ed, red, can only edit files in the current directory and cannot execute shell commands. Ed is the "standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for Unix, and thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as Vim and Emacs.

One of the reasons that Ed is in CBLFS is in case you run into patches that are in Ed format. While these are rare (diff-based patches are the norm), if you need to use such a patch, you'll need Ed.
