Yes, I have met some stupid java terminal implementations. I have 
resorted to 'sed', 'head', 'tail' and 'cat >>' just to clean up hosts 
files and resolv.conf to make basic things work. It's pretty cool when 
you can do that though. I really should know the non-visual editor, 
probably like using "edlin" in dos...
