Unhappy I've broken XF86Config Help!!!

I was getting too confident and edited my XF86Config file to get my wheel mouse working and i miss typed one of the commands (i know idiot !) and now it stops on startx command.
I can view XF86Config file from command line but is there any way to edit it so i can either correct line or comment it out???

Thanks in advance for any rays of hope!
