Hello,

I would most definitely recommend "VI" as the text editor in a Linux or UNIX environment. That CLI editor, commonly known as VI editor, is very efficient and once you get used to it you will find it really user-friendly as well. There are a handful of commands that you can apply while interacting with the editor. The way you use it is shown below.

Open a shell prompt. From there you type "VI" followed by a single space character and then followed by the name of the file you would like to edit. If you want to open the file in read-only mode, you use "view" instead of "VI". Once opened, you can browse through the file with characters j, k, l, and; that respectively are four left, down, up, and right.

Hope it helps.

Best Regards,
Parisi
