I am looking for shell program for source code edition. I have used nano, but it isn't enough. I need more "real" IDE like functionalities eg constant view of current row number, file browser and selection, cutting, pasting and copying functions. I also tried to use motor, but I got segmentation fault after execution... :-/ I am using Etch.
**Try vim, once you get your head around the way it works it is an immensely powerful editor. There are many 'cheat sheet' type reference sheets available if you google a bit which,*when*stuck*to*a*nearby*wall,*help out as you get started.
**Once you are comfortable with vi syntax there are a few other places where it comes in handy such as less/more (navigation and searching) and on the commandline (`set -o vi`).
I've never tried emacs, but I'm told it would make a very good operating system but for the lack of a decent editor.
