Subject:$editor : not found, YET! :)
View as plain text  
Thanks for taking time in to responding trivial things like this!. I 
appreciate this cos' I've a client breathing on my neck :(

The case thing was my fault, I did NOT made myself clear. 
The variable is $ EDITOR.

I tried your suggestion to change the value to /usr/bin/vi:
mysql just complained that
"/usr/bin/vi:not found"

Any other thing comes to mind????

TIA
