Ee (easy editor) is a screen oriented text editor. It is much simpler than vi and emacs and just plain better than pico.
Here's a snippet of the man page:
EE(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual EE(1)
ee - easy editor
ee [-eih] [+#] [file ...]
ree [-eih] [+#] [file ...]
The command ee is a simple screen oriented text editor. It is always in
text insertion mode unless there is a prompt at the bottom of the termi

command ree is the same as ee, but restricted to editing the named file
(no file operations, or shell escapes are allowed).
