You can avoid that pain without making / much bigger by installing the editors/e3 port and moving /usr/local/bin/e3* to /bin/. You'll get fair "vi", "emacs", "pico", "wordstar", and "nedit" emulators, all in less than 13000 bytes. I'm sure ed(1) will be with us 'till the end, but I wish "e3" was also included in the base i386 FreeBSD. Or even a bigger (but small) "vi" editor clone that would work on all CPUs. There are several that seem negligibly small compared to much of the other stuff I see in /*bin/. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
