Well, I was relegated to AIX systems through putty... and not many rights to change the system. The X worked, so you could
run an editor but the delay in speed was frustrating, so commandline was better (changes of 1 byte instead of updates of pixel areas). Now, you could
work locally, in say, notepad (or word, but notepad is better), then paste it in the xterm, dos2unix it (remove ^M) and run it... that was also
tested by me, and a not so good idea.
If you have an IDE (codeblocks, padre, notepad++, code, sublime) you have so many possibilities... but I'm sure they can not save remotely. I had to work like this:
Linux laptop (with nice IDE's) -> Windows VM (with nice IDE's) -> Citrix VPN -> remotedesktop -> putty (or notepad/wordpad) -> aix-server
So the first time, you program locally, sure grep -p (grep a paragraph) should work on Linux... ehrm... nope, there are ugly -A and -B's... and the perl on AIX is ancient (and no internet -> no CPAN...)
On another note: Here is my padre on my debian system (and the reason I code in Notepad++ /Wine):

09:56:22 PM: Error: locale 'en_GB' cannot be set.
