B.3.GUI-based text editors

B.3.1.GUI-based vi and Emacs

There are graphical versions of vi (such as gVim) and of Emacs in which pull-down menus and icons are available for use with the mouse. Be aware, however, that the more you use the keyboard instead of the mouse, the faster you can work, with the exception that selecting text for cutting, copying, or deleting may be faster with the mouse.

B.3.2.Other GUI-based text editors

The standard text editor for GNOME is gedit; for KDE, there is Kate or KWrite.
