And there are a plethora of good CLI editors, like pico and nano...I've also discovered that I like joe. VI has always seemed a little evil to me (hopefully none of the VI fans will crucify me for saying that). If you have one of those editors installed, you can just open a terminal and type the name of the editor followed by the name of the file you wish to edit. For nano it would look something like:
nano /etc/hostsThere are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
