joe is a lightweight, simple, easy-to-use, favorite-of-mine text editor. It's also the very first program I've compiled for the iLiad, so please be patient.
I don't recommend using it from within mrxvt since it relies on Ctrl keys. However, if you're like me and always ssh into your iLiad to edit files, but you have an aversion to vi, then this is for you.
Included is a .tar.gz containing nothing but the "joe" binary executable, weighing in at 380kb. I recommend moving it to /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin.
I wanted to do nano and lynx too, but I was foiled by ncurses, and I'm too busy to figure out any library-related stuff. (I got really lucky with joe since it compiled immediately.)
