Re: Midnight Commander

2) How do I get the F4 editor to create a NEW file, such as test.c or

$ mcedit filename

(There's also mcview.)

I ... manually invoke VI (which I frigging hate), type a line,
save it, and THEN use F4 to edit

More easily done with:

$ touch filename

You don't need it anymore in this case, but who knows... :^)
