I recognized none of your choices.

What do you use when editing from the command line?

I have no idea, since I stopped using Basic many long years ago, I'll leave programming up to the guys in the dark back room.

I  chose emacs though in reality I'm not really religiously attached to  any of  them. I'm actually using vi the most at work just because we standardized on it since it's  installed by default (emacs you have to  add). On the few servers where I'm going to be doing extensive writing/scripting I'll install emacs.

I've always identified vi as a good quick-hit editor and emacs for bigger editing projects. Though they're both just fine for either truth be told.

nano's a great simple little editor also.

It seems most people prefer emacs. What little bit I can do I learned with vi. You do much more with a text editor that me. :-)
