Summary 0001281: ex substitute command missing statement about error
Description In the description of the ed substitute command there is this statement:
It is an error if the substitution fails on every addressed line.
An equivalent statement is missing from the description of the ex substitute command. (All of the implementations I tried treated it as an error, although macOS did not write an error message, it just exited with a non-zero status.)

The ed text should also be changed so that it uses "shall", and it is in an odd place in the paragraph.
Desired Action On page 2686 line 87606 section ed, delete:
It is an error if the substitution fails on every addressed line.

On page 2686 line 87609 section ed, change:
The current line shall ...
to:
It shall be an error if the substitution fails on every addressed line. The current line shall ...

On page 2726 line 89178 section ex, change:
... and other special characters.
to:
... and other special characters. It shall be an error if the substitution fails on every addressed line.
