Should be just VI (or was it vi) and then you're file name.

Should be able to do just a man vi

Just a thought, but why not use pico or nano??

Hey pico works when i had mandrake 9 on here it did not work

Anyway the tutorial i was talking about, is built into to vi, and just gives you a start in working with VI

You can install pico on your own if you want, either via a download and compile or with some sort of package your particular flavor might have.

nano is pretty much a clone of pico though and that might be installed instead....as an example...Redhat will install nano, but Drake will have both (and I think nano is installed by default)

Should be the command vitutor or vimtutor (depending on which vi flavor you have installed).

Here's a link that has some good info:
http://www.chem.brown.edu/instructions/vi.html

I've been using it as a quick 'cheat sheet' for commands. :)

Look into vim, as it is a bit more powerful than vi (unless your distro soft links vi to vim).

anyway...

C, sometimes C++, perl, i know enough java to bullshit my way through it.

As for compilers...gcc baby. That is probably the most prevalent and well supported compiler under GNU/Linux systems.
