In 1988, PC Magazine had an article about editors. I typed in the code provided and wound up with TED.COM, 3,096 bytes. I still have it, but probably haven't used in over 25 years, preferring the editor built into whichever OFM is available in whatever OS I have booted. In Linux, it's MC on the vttys, FileCommander in the GUIs. If neither is available and no network is available to install either, I try for Nano first, Vim last.

Not a clue. Never use echo myself. Had to study it once. I would however guess I have several as each terminal should have it's own and I have several.

If you're studying and want a record of what you do, you can just make it output to a .txt, than it'll even make it for you. Type, enter and it saves the line. Truly Minimalist.

Open a terminal and try it.

It's so minimal you can't even edit with it!

The programme 'less' is indeed very cool and the terminal response is very good.
Good "refresh" of the display while viewing many many lines of text or code.
The coloring (bold,...) is also awesome.
It could be used for a nice new type of markup format for Book processing, such as ASCIIDOC.

Have you ever looked up the source code?
