I know of one very senior Unix/Linux programmer that
uses 'ed' as his editor of choice.

If you ever get stuck on a slow link or some other situation where $TERM/$term terminfo are mucked up it is a good tool to know.

Had I posted on April 1 I would have recommened ">" as an editor.
Speaking of symbols -- do you see the strange file "[" in your /usr/sbin folder. Does it indicate: * you have been hacked * cannot type
	* need to learn shell programming
	* need to take a test on shell programming.

This is one of those trick spellings, it's pronounced "test" and there's a man page for it. Like "*" is pronounced Nathan, after Nathan Hale "I regret that I have but one asterisk for my country."

So you can write
  if [ -n "$fn" ]; then echo "filename is null"; fi
and read it tomorrow.
