Joe on debian?


I've got debian 3.0 installed on my x86 and the only text editor i can run from the command prompt as far as I know is vi. I hate vi, I think its a pain to use. I've used Joe a ton on the Unix lab computers at school. Is there a version of Joe or even somethign similar I can get on Debian? i tried apt-get install joe on a hunch but nothing came up. haha

Thanks in advance!

Maybe try "apt-get update" then check apt's cache again.

From the console try mc or pico. Pico is a very simple text editor, and mc isn't much more complex. Both are very common among Linux distributions.

Thats very strange..... I did the update for apt-get, but still didn't see Joe in the cache. I tried nano and it works well. I guess i'm going with that from noww on.

Thanks guys =)
