Simple editor (ee?)
Wonder if we should add this to the wiki list:
NetBSD should provide a simple text editor - its ridiculous
to expect a new user to start with vi (note: vi is my editor
of choice, but I defy anyone to argue that it is suitable
for a new user who just wants to edit rc.conf)
Users can add editors from pkgsrc, but there needs to be
something *always* available.
FreeBSD picked ee (in pkgsrc as editors/easyedit). Its
not to big (78K), only links against libc, needs no other
files (apart from termcap). It includes its own mini curses
(20K) but doesn't work correctly with NetBSD's curses
What do people think?
