Arrow Text editor Non-X11 for EnGarde Secure Linux 3.0.14


Well I like a good gui texted editor. something like Micorsoft editor (aka edit.exe). it is so hard finding one.

Is that a question? You want a text editor? One of these?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...x_text_editors

I hear NEdit is supposed to be pretty good (can't say, I haven't used it).

If you don't run X server your choices are even more limited, Pine/PICO is about the most user-friendly editor that will work in console mode. Nedit is nice but I'm pretty sure it needs X.

Smile tui text editor.

I want a TUI text editor. I just found out that is what I want. now I have to find one. thank you for your help. but I install fedore 7. on the computer that should be a router. so I guess I will not need a TUI TEXT EDITOR.

Oops, my brain filtered out the 'Non-X11', NEdit is indeed an X app.

For console editors, I like joe; in 'jstar' mode, it emulates ye olde Wordstar.

Talking EnGarde Secure Linux

I just want to make it clear I do not recommend EnGarde Secure Linux. its is very outdated. and has drm in it. if its free why dose it need drm. well I guess its just one of those things. also you have to pay to use php 5. well if you need a router I would recommend shorewall or firestarter.

Pico/nano

I agree either pico or nano (depending on your distro) are a great choice for commandline editors without having to learn the control commands of using vi

You only need to remember three things to survive in vi:

i - start insert mode at the current cursor position
ESC:wq - leave insert mode, save, and quit
ESC:q! - leave insert mode and quit without saving

vi is everywhere, even on my Linksys router.

Actually, it's

ESC:x to exit & save (shorter than wq)
ESC:q to quit nosave (if you made no changes)
ESC:q! to quit nosave (if you did make changes)
i for insert (edit)mode
ESC to get out of insert (edit) mode

It's worth knowing the basics, vi comes as part of the base install on just about every *nix style system and very lightweight across dodgy connections.
