SYNOPSIS

select-editor

DESCRIPTION

select-editor provides a coherent mechanism for selecting and storing a
preferred sensible-editor on a per-user basis. It lists the available
editors on a system and interactively prompts the user to select one.
The results are stored as SELECTED_EDITOR in ~/.selected_editor, which
is sourced and used by sensible-editor. SELECTED_EDITOR is overridden
by the VISUAL and EDITOR environment variables.
