Install "pico"

I'm sure you all know about pico. Un fortunately, I didn't get it installed.
I'm using Red Hat 5.0. Does anyone know what to choose during the installation
to install it?

Thanks

Seriously though, knowing vi is very useful for when you need to do emergency repairs and all you've got is sed and cat.

You can get pico by installing the pine (yuk) mailer, and just not using the mail part.
Alternatively download pico.tar.gz (or whatever) and extract it into /usr/bin. Unfortunately this will be invisible to RedHat's RPM system and so may get overwritten by other installs.

If you install pico in it's own directory /usr/bin/pico and symbolic link to it from /usr/bin, it will be safe from glint.

I don't know exactly, my last installation was some months ago. But if there isn't a package for pico, install the mailreader "pine". This will install pico, since pico is the editor used by pine.

Yes, pine should install pico.  I suggest
that if you like pico, learn emacs.  Emacs
works just like pico, but better.  I found
pico to limit my productivity after i learned
all of it's commands.  Don't
become discouraged, just remember the following
translations:

pico: exit: ^x
emacs: exit: ^c^x

pico: save: ^o
emacs: save: ^x^s
