We haven’t seen a text editor in a long time; here’s one that’s very easy to pick up — mostly because the majority of its controls are right there on screen: aee.
Having said that, there’s not a whole lot more I can suggest about aee. It’s quick and fast, and there’s an X-based version of it too, called xae.
Looks much the same. So if you need a graphical version, it won’t be difficult to adopt. 😉
Most of the controls for aee (and xae) are accessible through CTRL key sequences, but there’s a menu as well, which does many of the same things.
In that way, it’s a nifty splice between, for example, something like emacs, which runs everything by CTRL key sequence (if I remember right) … and jed, which behaves a lot like an old-fashioned text-based word processor.
You know, that reminds me of something. … 😐 Hmm. …
