Obtuse commands abound! I've tried vi, with the help of a friend who knows it better than me, and all I can say is DAMN! Switching between command and edit mode is just weird and come on...ZZ to save and exit?!?Originally posted by Onyxx
need more than pico, well you're in luck. OS x also comes with two other text editors. Vi and emacs. pico is great for little stuff but its few short comings can be solved with vi and emacs.
commands for starting vi is
or vi + filename (ex. vi .configure)
same for emacs.
You might want to try 'wq' to 'write' and 'quit'. Makes a bit more sense.Originally posted by Rower_CPU
