How do you edit a file in shell?


I know I've read it before, but I'm trying to edit a file on my server through the shell. Can anyone help me out? Is there a guide on this online anywhere?

Most distro's come with nano or pico, about the same thing.

For more advanced editors, vi is available in the command line, as well as numerous clones of vi. I think emacs also has a command line mode, tho i never used this editor enough to find out how to do it.
