This question already has an answer here:

As a Windows user (please forgive me) interacting with GNU\Linux through SSH I am looking for a terminal-based text editor that has similar hot keys to most Windows text editors which I have grown extremely used to (the same hotkeys I use when editing this text in any browser on Windows). (Or I suppose a way to customise an existing editor).

  • Cut: Ctrl+X
  • Copy: Ctrl+C
  • Paste: Ctrl+V
  • Undo: Ctrl+Z
  • Redo: Ctrl+Y
  • Save: Ctrl+S
  • Select all: Ctrl+A
  • Jump one word right: Ctrl+
  • Jump one word left: Ctrl+
  • Select right: Shift+
  • Select left: Shift+
  • Select word right: Ctrl+Shift+
  • Select word left: Ctrl+Shift+
  • Select line up: Shift+
  • Select line down: Shift+
  • Jump to start of line:Home
  • Jump to end of line: End

And for kicker:

  • Delete line: Shift+Del
  • Copy and paste line: Ctrl+C+V

  • You definitely do not mean bash. You probably mean console-based. @Mat is probably correct about this question's being a duplicate. – HalosGhost May 14 '14 at 7:16
  • Yes I think it is a duplicate - strangely that one did not come up when I was typing out my question (or I missed it). – markmnl May 14 '14 at 7:27
