I know of one very senior Unix/Linux programmer that
uses 'ed' as his editor of choice.

If you ever get stuck on a slow link or some other situation 
where $TERM/$term terminfo  are mucked up it is a good tool to know.

Had I posted on April 1 I would have recommened ">" as an editor.
Speaking of symbols -- do you see the strange file  "[" 
in your /usr/sbin folder.   Does it indicate:
	* you have been hacked 
	* cannot type
	* need to learn shell programming
	* need to take a test on shell programming.
