Pico editor??
Authored by: john_e on Dec 08, '02 06:27:07PM

Pico is a terminal text editor. If you just type "pico" and then enter it will open with a blank page and no document name specified. If you type, for example "pico blaha" it will open with a blank document called "blaha" most probably. Though, if there already is a file in the directory you're in named "blaha", pico will open that file.
As simple as that. I prefer pico when editing system files, because of it's simplicity. There is also "vi" and "emacs", which you could try(there are other editors as well, but these are the most widely known afaik, and are both installed on OS X).

Hope this clears it up!
