I second what dangral posted - once you learn it you will love it - its a very powerful editor

more to dangral and google's point: vi seems clumsy at first but once you have taken advantage of vi's considerable functionality once or twice, you won't be saying "I hate it" anymore. In fact, you're going to be quickly downloading a Windoze version. Smilie

I have added a poll to this thread. If you would like another editor added to the poll, just say so in a reply.

I agree that vi is the way to go. And if you know vi, you'll be able to use line editors such as ex and ed when you're using some screwy old terminal or coming in via a really slow modem or serial link.

Learning vi is a *huge* investment, and will be an invaluable skill to add to your Unix skillset....

BTW for those who are unsure - vi is pronounced Vee Eye. We've got people at work who pronounce it "Vie" and that is definitely not the done thing Smilie How we snigger Smilie
