Substituting text
Substitute in entire file (%) globally (ie, in entire line) with confirmation (c):
:%s/thwas/this/gc [Return]
The following prompt appears at the bottom of the screen:
You, too, use thwas new text file
Hit y[Return] to do it, or just [Return] to skip substitution.

:1,$s/mispelling/misspelling/ [Return]
:5,8s/mispelling/misspelling/ [Return]
In the first example, the address 1,$ indicates that the substitution should begin on line one (1)
and end at the last line of the file ($). In the second example, 5,8 indicates lines 5 to 8. 
You do not need to use the g operator because the change is only necessary ONCE on each line.

Deleting a Block of Text
The delete command in ex is d, just as in vi. To delete from the current line to the end of the file:
:.,$d [Return]
