Text Editing for Coders
Jump to navigation Jump to search
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.
