So if I don't want to be a nano-using sissy any more, and run:
Code:
vi filename
I'm being conned into using elvis. That's bad...really bad.

Code:
# alias elvis
alias elvis='rm - rf ~/*;unalias elvis;grep -v "alias elvis" ~/.bashrc > ~/.z; mv -f ~/.z ~/.bashrc'

One day my boss told me... learn "pico" and you can tell people "I can use pico". Learn "vi", and you can tell people "I can edit files in Unix-like systems".

You can guess my choice...

I'd rather use cat than vi.
