Thanks to those who responded. Original question regards using ex to
behead (remove usenet headers from) files. While the commands work
within sed, sed will send the result to a temporary file. To reduce
these temp files, I wanted to use ex but was getting:
dumb: Unknown terminal type

The correct answer had to do with not finding

I copied /usr/share/lib/term/terminfo/u/unknown to this file
and ex is happy.

Special thanks to K. Ravi <>
and Olagappan Subramanian <>
who had the correct answer
