It seems a lot more powerful than pico and a lot simpler than Vi.

I have been forcing myself to get to know Vi, and actually Vim isn't so difficult, but it is good to know that MC's editor is out there on a lot of servers and relatively easy to use.

export EDITOR=/usr/local/bin/mcedit ;-)

The best thing about it that you can Ctrl-O at any time and get a shell, while testing something it's the best.
