some tools look for the env variable EDITOR, hence you can set it

EDITOR=pico ; export EDITOR

Hi Guys

I just want to follow up on this, you just need to put those two steps in your .bashrc file under your home directory, so you have the variable available after reboots and closing sesions and terminals..etc

under .bashrc

EDITOR=pico
export EDITOR
