Say what you will, to me the best console editor is still Midnight 
Commander's (mc) internal editor. I'm mean come on: syntax highlighting, 
simple key bindings, no bs - its great. It's only been in the last year 
that I have moved to the GTK/scintilla based "Geany" as my main editor. 
And yes nano works  ok when nothing else is around. Thanks for the -w 
tip. I hate that line wrapping.
