I would suggest vim (not vi, which is a link to busybox on most systems). Fatdog64 devx includes vim.
As a viewer: vim -R file (read-only)
As a binary editor: vim -b file
As a stream editor: cat file | vim -
vim (without complicated plugins) is very fast, works in terminal, and has a separate GTK version (gvim, in the Fatdog64 contrib repo).


Vim is great I agree, but in its non-GUI form I fear it may be too intimidating for beginners (I really should send in my donation to Bram as I've been using it on and off for nearly 20 years now).

This tutorial tells you how to navigate a file in Vim;
