Re: Shell based text editor for writing prose

G'day all.

Due to a somewhat complicated set of circumstances I'm looking for a
decent non graphical shell based text editor to write prose with.

- - basically i want to be able to ssh onto my server and write from a
number of remote locations.

I know Debian is blessed with a plethora of programs that can do this,
what I'm after is a recommendation for something that feels good to
write with.

in a perfect world I'd like decent cut and paste, command characters for
end of word/start of word, and export to a human readable open format.

Is this a troll? I prefer vim, a good number of people prefer emacs. Both will suit your needs.
