If the value for line exceeds the number of lines in the file you are editing or if you specify a
number sign (#) for line, Edlin appends the inserted line(s) to the end of the file. In either case,
the last line you insert becomes the current line. If only a portion of the file
is in memory, the line is appended at the end of the portion in memory.
