Editing files under Linux with simple text editors


This is a nice little introduction to editing your system files with a variety of small editors. Ignore the claim that you must be root to use one of these editors; the author apparently meant that you must be root in order to edit a system file that doesn't belong to you.
Most tutorials about editing Linux system or program files assume you are going to use either the vi or emacs editors preferred by a majority of skilled programmers.
