Text editor, Pico command not found

Help, I need to edit a file, but when I use pico, it says command not found. I know there are other shell based text editors, what are they?

Ones I know of are:


I use joe myself, and enjoy how customizable it is. joe can be made to behave like pico, just type in "jpico". I haven't used that too much.

Hope this is of help.
