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.

Good Luck
