My router has a text editor

So I’m trying out the features in IOS-XR instead of doing the usual “conf t”… but found out you have several editors to chose from!

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router#edit route-policy UPSTREAM-OUT ?
emacs  to use Emacs editor
nano   to use nano editor
vim    to use Vim editor


Editing the config via the terminal results in it being overwritten, so you can only edit in this method 🙁


EDIT: OK, I found the text editor is useful for somethings, eg using VIM as the editor


text editor to replace text is good 🙂
