My recollection is that ed, ex, and the original vi cannot handle 
arbitrarily long lines or binary content, and don't work well with 
large files.  I believe that "nvi" and "vim" as alternatives to the 
original "vi" should be able to do these things just fine, as would 
emacs (and the various derivatives).
