11The following compiler directives are recognized:
12DES		- to add encryption support (requires crypt(3))
13NO_REALLOC_NULL	- if realloc(3) does not accept a NULL pointer
14BACKWARDS	- for backwards compatibility
15NEED_INSQUE	- if insque(3) is missing
16
17The file `POSIX' describes extensions to and deviations from the POSIX
18standard.

20The ./test directory contains regression tests for ed. The README
21file in that directory explains how to run these.
