Sorry for asking a newbie question, but here goes...
My girlfriend is a COBOL programmer and recently took a job with Unix
as the main operating system. She has not used Unix before and is
frustrated with the awkward vi editor, after using many easy and simple
text editors in DOS and Windows. I'm unfamiliar with Unix myself, but
having used many quick and easy editors (I work on PC's and Lan's doing
xBase programming), am surprised that Unix systems still seems to use
editors as clunky as the old Edlin of early DOS versions. Surprisingly,
most of the people at the new company seem happy as clams with vi and
ex --unlike DOS people who never did have anything but disdain for
Edlin (whoever invented it should be drawn and quartered I believe).
At any rate, she is going batty with vi and would be very grateful if
someone could tell us if there are more friendly text and or graphical
Unix editors (as sharewhare?), and where we might download them on the
