nice console-based editor for novices
It's a fact of life that new users want an editor that works like Windows notepad. Finding a solution that can be used over a non-X11 connection from a Windows machine is not easy. This editor not only provides the basic feel of notepad, it delivers easy access to some very nice advanced functions (mark location, find regexp, macros, save preferences, ...) that are unusually easy to use.
I built the program on a fairly clean Solaris 7 box with no problems.
I'm sticking with vi and emacs but now everybody is happy.
