Re: text editors

I use vim.

Log in as user that will use vim, and run the following command:

cat > .vimrc << "EOF"
set nosi noai
set number

Now when you use vim, there will be a line number at the beginning of every line.

Is there any text editor, preferably in a terminal that has the facility to protect lines in the document, not the document itself ?
I've got 2 blocks of "code" that look similar and I keep editing the wrong one and then it doesn't work.
