Emacs is very powerful, have a look at it. In the begining, you could
think that it's quite complicated to work with Emacs. But, when you've
become familiar with it, you don't want anything else. :]

(I'm waiting for the people shouting "Hey, he asked for an editor, not
for an OS!" ;)

Handling variables is shell dependent, so using them should be
documented in the manual of you shell. (Bash has a great and very
detailed info page, it's in the package bash-doc).
