  ... which are much easier to handle than a car. Or a ticket machine  
for a ride by train. You can make your life a bit easier when you set  
in Terminal an environment variable EDITOR that helps updmap to  
decide which editor is to be used. In a bash based environment it  
would be:

	sudo -H EDITOR=nano updmap-sys --edit

In a tcsh based environment it would be

	sudo -H env EDITOR=pico updmap-sys --edit

Nano and pico are both very similar simple and small editors that  
work in both environments equally well and that show the most  
important commands at the bottom. The character ^ means to hold down  
the ctrl key why pressing the other high-lighted one.
