Knoppix gives you a choice of text editors: It simply depends on what you want to do.

For instance, if you wan't to word process (like you would do in word on a windoze machine), you should probably go with OpenOffice. It can be accessed by going to:

Start (the big K with the gear, I don't know how new you are ) --> Office --> OpenOffice.Org Writer

To run a nice simple text editor intended mostly for editing of .configs or .txts, you could use Kwrite:

I usually open it like this:

Alt-F2 ---> and then type: Kwrite

--Or--

Start ---> Editors ---> Text Editor (KWrite)

Does that help?

P.S. Have you burned a knoppix disc yet? Do you know how?

I am sure it has VI/M and maybe emacs as well as the graphical ones like kwrite and KATE.

Well I have the following vb6 code for a server:

Code:
Option Explicit
Dim sServerMsg As String

Private Sub Form_Load()

'Address must be input as a string
Dim Address As String

'Set the address equal to the web address of the pickle line camera
Address = "http://pl7cam2/operator/image_test.shtml?camNo=1&squarepixel=0&resolution=4CIF&compression=35&color=yes&rotation=0&overlayimage=0&overlaypos=0x0&date=1&clock=1&text=1&textstring=%237%20Pickle%20Exit%20Camera&textcolor=white&textbackgroundcolor=black&textpos=top&duration=NaN&fps=0kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk"

'tells the browser window to display whatever is on the web page of the address
WebBrowser1.Navigate Address

  'The port number is arbitrary.
  ' it's best to use a fairly high number
  ' because the low numbers are used for
  ' standard services: 21 for FTP, 23 for telnet,
  ' 80 for HTTP etc...
  Winsock1(0).LocalPort = 10119

  'start listening for a connection
  
  Winsock1(0).Listen

  'Define the message and show the connection in the list box
  sServerMsg = "Listening to port: "
   List1.AddItem (sServerMsg)
End Sub



Private Sub Winsock1_ConnectionRequest(Index As Integer, ByVal requestID As Long)

  'the winsock control has to be in a closed state
  ' before it can do anything else. (like accept a connection)
  Winsock1(Index).Close

  'Let the winsock close
  DoEvents

  'accept the connection request
  Winsock1(Index).Accept requestID

  'Define the message and display it in the list box
   sServerMsg = "Serving client!"
   List1.AddItem (sServerMsg)
End Sub


Private Sub Winsock1_Close(Index As Integer)

  'When the other end has closed the connection,
  ' close server end too
  Winsock1(Index).Close

  'to continue listening for another connection
  Winsock1(Index).Listen

  'show the connection in the list box
  sServerMsg = "Listening to port: "
  List1.AddItem (sServerMsg)
End Sub
Private Sub Winsock1_DataArrival(Index As Integer, ByVal bytesTotal As Long)

Dim strTemp As String
'Dim strTemp2 As String
Dim a As Integer
  'This event fires when the process on the other end of the connection(i.e the client)
  'sends data

  'retreive data from socket
  Winsock1(Index).GetData strTemp
  'Winsock1(Index).GetData strTemp2

'The following code separates each part of the string based on the comma
'that is present in the incoming string and parses it out into its
'respective textbox

  a = InStr(strTemp, ",")
  txtcoilid.Text = Left(strTemp, a - 1)
  
  'after the first parse you must refine the string as everthing after the comma and
  'repeat the process throughout the entire string
  strTemp = Mid(strTemp, a + 1)
  a = InStr(strTemp, ",")
  txtwidth.Text = Left(strTemp, a - 1)
  
  strTemp = Mid(strTemp, a + 1)
  a = InStr(strTemp, ",")
  txtlinespeed.Text = Left(strTemp, a - 1)
  
  strTemp = Mid(strTemp, a + 1)
  a = InStr(strTemp, ",")
  txtexitcoillength.Text = Left(strTemp, a - 1)
  
  
End Sub

I need to convert this code to a linux language. Would I use a visual text editor for something like this or something like vi? If vi is best, how do I access it in knoppix? Any suggestions on what language to use........the server will be passed data from a vb6 client.....compatability will be an issue.....vb6 communicating with linux?

I need to start coding a server in knoppix. Where and what would I use to do this. Also how would I save and compile my code when I feel its neccessary? I am new to linux and need to know some of the basics. How do I get to whatever it is that i need to begin typing my code?

mrobertson - I edited your code listing slightly to put [code ][/ code] around it - without it the screen was very misshapen. No other changes were made.

I think I understand your question better now. You would probably have better luck with this post in the Programming forum (although I know you've already posted there):

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...p?s=&forumid=9

The text editor you'll most likely want is Vi or Vim, although Emacs might be an option.

As I haven't coded in VB on a linux machine (On *NIX machines I generally use C++ or C, although just a little, as I'm not a very good programmer.) I wouldn't know how to port VB6 Code

Python is probably a good choice for a beginner to programming (and It's quite powerful, I've used it a bit, but you don't look like a beginner

On another note, there is a program to bring VB code over to Linux, its called Real Basic (You can get a free demo, but after that expires you have to pay) Here's the site:
