"Either cut and paste this into your favorite editor"
in a Sues forum and I did NOT understand the meaning of editor

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_script

An editor is a tool to write, edit and save text. The text can be a script or anything textual (a letter to your mom), but in this case it is a script.
examples of editors : nano, vi, nedit, vim, gvim, gedit...

"editor" referrs to a text editor.
"script" referrs to a list of commands which the computer is to execute - usually in terminal. It is the equivalent of the DOS batch (*.bat) file.

note: if you run a google search using "linux editor" and again using "linux script" you would have answered your questions. Similar search in these forums would also answer your questions.

Please edit your profile (My LQ > Edit Profile) to include a location and your distribution. That goes for you too Agrouf. This sort of thing actually helps people answer your questions.

Thanks for the advise, but I don't have one distro, I have many. I prefer to post the distro in the question when I have questions because I live with room mates and we have 6 computers, each running a different distro, some of them running several distros on the hard disk, plus the live-cd distros.

Bon soir, Agrouf this is a facinating melting pot you live in.

Even so - consider my profile display (left): do you think these are the only distros I may ask about or be familiar with?

Pour votre amusement: pick an obscure French distro... (Good greif my French is rusty...)

Makes sense to me, or list them in sig where there's more room
