emacs, pico, and nedit, Oh My!

emacs, pico, and nedit, Oh My!

Many editors are available to the Linux user, either installed as part of the distribution or included on the distribution CD.

One of my old favorites is another nongraphical editor that makes a nice alternative for people who, having gotten up close and personal with vim, would prefer something else. It's called Pico (command name pico), which stands for “PIne COmposer.” Pico is the full-screen editor distributed with PINE, a great text-based e-mail client distributed by the University of Washington.
