in thread On Interviewing and Interview Questions

We provide people with a Unix-like machine. If they can't use that, then they are not qualified. We let people use whatever reasonable editor they like. If they aren't at least minimally competent with vi(m), emacs or pico/nano, then I don't want to know. They also have perl pre-installed and a working interwebnet connection. Anyone who finds that too unfamiliar is interviewing for the wrong job.

    Emacs may be my preferred editor, but my .emacs is not your .emacs .

    That is the strength, as well as the weakness, of Emacs.

    /J

      ditto vim.
