The classic editor! You'll need to compile it, so you'll need the devx sfs too, but if you take the following source:
http://nchc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ex-vi/ex-050325.tar.bz2

Edit the Makefile to suit (it's too early to have a configure script) ; make ; make install.

Also install the following file in /etc/termcap:
http://www.ambienteto.arti.beniculturali.it/cgi-bin/dwww?type=file&location=/usr/share/doc/xterm/xterm.termcap.gz

Then it works well. You can log in remotely to your Puppy box and edit files!

The executable is only 226kb and the termcap is 9300 bytes approx.

I can't make pets or pup files yet but perhaps someone else will.


Okay for me using devx_400 under Dingo (4.00) .. Only one issue:

in /etc/profile you have comment out the line

Original:
Code:
alias vi e3vi


New:
Code:
#alias vi e3vi


otherwise it will keep using e3.
