AFAIK pico (actually it's nano, a free, open-source clone of pico) automatically puts in the name of the original file when you choose to "WriteOut". Also, it prompts you if you want to write it when you exit with unwritten changes.

For learining the command line, see the LinuxCommand tutorial, linked to in my sig.
A million thanks for you as well, and all who helped me.
