Here are some applications that may help you edit text files:

  • vim -- a programmer's text editor that relies on you knowing a certain amount of arcane stuff. Start "vimtutor" from the command line to learn how to use it.
  • nano -- probably one of the easiest to use for people new to editing text files under linux.
  • emacs -- a programmer's text editor with tons of features. Start it and type "Control-h t" to learn how to use it.

There's an ongoing religious war between vim and emacs users.
