Abstract: This is a group of file manipulation "executives"
that is intended to allow the user to make "global"
changes to all lines of a file. The "executivess"
call up teco files to perform the work. The TECO
executive gets the name of modules and creates further
com lines that operate on the specified files. This can
be very useful to the user that desires to utilize the
code that has already been written and write supporting
documentation, or to manipulate data files etc.
