Where is my pico, vi, or nano?
Authored by: pdxdude on Dec 05, '05 02:19:01PM

I've hit a roadblock on this one, and could use any help, please.

I've successfully installed nano on one of my machines, no problem.

But on another machine, while trying to use pico or vi, I get command not found. So, I tried to do a manual nano install, and I get a couple of errors in the make. So i installed xcode, thinking some editors would be installed with that, and no luck. Any ideas? I'm just looking to do a basic edit of my hosts file, but can't access it with pico, vi, or nano.

Many thanks.
