Many times this editor has saved me from destruction.
Small and powerful. I love it.
Best cli for 10+ years. Wordstar key-mappings, syntax highlighting, per file type preferences, auto-indent, macro recording, block editing, searching, copying, bookmarks, spell checker, shell exit, split windows, regex pattern matching, hex and decimal display. If you want more then you're simply greedy!
If there is a better cli text editor, it'd have to offer a 'Joe-mode' since the key commands are too familiar. It's not something that can be solved with an alias (like 'ls' in a DOS env).
I prefer VI
small command line editor
My favorite command line editor
The first text editor for UN*X that I have learnt. Easier to use after you learn the basics.
small, light, configurable.
Changed my score from 3 to 5 as I really like this. Now I have three choices for command line editing. vim, nano and joe
Am liebsten als Imitation von WordStar (jstar)
I have the Wordstar cursor keys burned into my brain from Turbo Pascal o 15 years ago. What can I say Joe is a basic termanal text editor that has the key strokes I know by heart.
