How does one find and replace text in all open files with jed?

I don't know about jed, but Regexxer does wonders. It's super easy to use, allows you to cherry-pick or just replace all.

While I know nothing about that editor, maybe you could map a command to a key combination like it is possible in ~/.vimrc. You'd need something like

sed -i 's/THIS/WITH THAT/g' $FILE1 $FILE2 $FILE3

Your editor probably provides variables for the files you have currently open.
