Unix stuff You will need to learn to use a Unix editor. The most simple is pico. While there are many editors, most Unix users use either vi or emacs. Vi is more widely available than emacs and is smaller and faster to load, but emacs is far more customizable and powerful, can load specific modes that help you with the type of file you are editing, and can include other useful functionalities like web browsing and email. Emacs is probably harder to learn, but once you have mastered it, it is a power tool. It can even emulate vi!
