Edlin: D (Delete)--Notes

Default parameter values

If you omit both parameters or only the line2 parameter, Edlin deletes the current line. However, if you omit only the line1 parameter, Edlin deletes the block of text that includes the current line through the line whose number is specified for line2. In the latter case, you cannot specify a line number for line2 that precedes the current line number. In general, the number you specify for line2 cannot be smaller than the number you specify for line1. If you omit only the line1 parameter, you need to insert a comma as a placeholder preceding line2, as shown in the syntax line.

Line renumbering

After Edlin deletes lines, you can use the Edlin l (list) command at the Edlin prompt to see the correctly renumbered lines that remain.
