Synopsis

select-editor

Description

select-editor provides a coherent mechanism for selecting and storing a preferred sensible-editor on a per-user basis. It lists the available editors on a system and interactively prompts the user to select one. The results are stored as SELECTED_EDITOR variable in ~/.selected_editor, which is sourced and used by sensible-editor(1) command. SELECTED_EDITOR variable is overridden by the VISUAL and EDITOR environment variables.
