Midnight Commanders built in editor (mc -e or F4 when within mc)
is very intuitive, and is very DOS-like, right down to selecting
text with Shift+Arrow-Keys and cut'n'paste with Shift+Del/Ins (as
you'd expect for a Norton clone). However mc is not that small in
executable size. It does fill up resized xterms though (and SSH
vterms for that matter).
