GNU ed won't accept redirected input

Dec 17, 2009
The Windows version of GNU ed refuses to work with TCC's redirected input, no matter what method is used to provide it:

ed.exe -v d2xl.txt <<<,g/delta/l 

type scripted_commands.lst | ed.exe -v d2xl.txt

ed.exe -v d2xl.txt  < scripted_commands.lst

all result in the error message: script, line 1: Invalid command suffix

The text file is loaded correctly.

scripted_commands.lst contains just this line: ,g/delta/l

Entered via ed's prompt, the same command works fine, however.

I am not sure where the problem lies - AFAIK, TCC does not add any characters to redirects?
