If you are serious about editing, it is probably wise to at least be proficient in ed and vi. Everything else beyond that is eye candy..... no editor wars intended. Ed will dig you out of deep holes when all you have is your root fs and everything else has gone to hades in a handbasket. Vi will do everything else and not eat up every system resource in town. Both are pretty much standard on every current form of *nix. Anything else will be iffy, and if not standard you will have to roll in your own toolkit. If you are the admin on the machine, no problem. If you aren't,.....maybe.
