I have to say that Nano was not supplied though Pico was and I didn't get it
to do what I wanted.  Which is the more advanced version here?  is Pico the
advance on Nano in which case, downloading Nano would appear futile.  I did
download Nano last night though not installed it yet.  Am I going backwards
on this.  I think it still seems curious that keyboard support is even now
not as complete as the other OS's after all this time.  I understand the
need for a lot of these to be remote terminal compliant for folks accessing
the tools via a shell and remote terminal access; but desktop Linux is here
to stay and though that programs dedicated to this should be more common by
now.  I did this sort of key handling when I programmed in Pascal under DOS
and got it more reliable and responsive than these.

Hi.  Is there  any good reason why Nano does not work?  It supports arrows,
Home, End, paging up and down, etc.  I use it frequently.  Sorry if I am
being unhelpful or if you tried that already but it seems to do what you
want.  It is standard on most Linux systems.
