However, one thing I might need is to view, and edit in a right to left language, specifically Arabic using say... nano. Or with sqlite. Is that possible?
EMACS will be fine also. I do not mind the text editor. Also I would like to do this without install X, or any GUI stuff of any sort.
Terminal what I understand is the black window with the $ symbol, which is what you get with the default Debian install. Its using Bash, and I use SSH to remote into it.
